Missouri Attorneys Seek Special Prosecutor for Case Against Gov. Eric Greitens

Prosecutors in Missouri have dropped a criminal charge against Gov. Eric Greitens, announcing on Monday that they are seeking a special prosecutor to file the charge against the governor again. The move comes after Greitens’ attorneys asked for Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner to testify. Greitens is accused of taking a photo of a woman with whom he was having an extramarital affair in order to blackmail her. He still faces a felony charge for taking a donor list by a charity he founded without the organization’s permission.
