A man whose ex-wife had an affair with Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has been subpoenaed by a St. Louis grand jury investigating claims that he tried to blackmail her, according to the man’s attorney.St. Louis-based attorney Al Watkins, who represents the ex-husband of the hairdresser Greitens had an affair with in 2015, said the subpoena signals a step forward for the grand jury’s investigation of the incident, according to the Associated Press.“It’s been stepped up a notch,” Watkins said, according to the AP. “It means a grand jury is seated and is hearing evidence about the investigation against Gov. Greitens.”The recently elected Republican governor admitted to the 2015 affair on Jan. 10 in a statement where he admitted to being “unfaithful” to his marriage. However, he denied accusation

rising-star governor of missouri denies slapping or blackmailing his (extramarit

On Wednesday night, St. Louis station KMOV reported that a woman with whom Republican Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens had an extramarital affair in 2015 told her now-ex-husband that Greitens had taken a nude photograph of her without her consent and told her he would make it public if she ever told anyone about their relationship. Greitens confirmed that the affair took place but denied that he had blackmailed the woman, who was his hair stylist. On Thursday, Talking Points Memo reported further that the woman’s ex-husband also says she told him that Greitens struck her in July 2015:

following sex scandal, gop governor faces pressure to resign

The details of Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens’ (R) sex scandal make it more damaging than most. The Republican governor concedes he had an extra-marital affair, which occurred the year before he launched his campaign for statewide office, but as part of the story, Greitens is also accused of trying to blackmail his former mistress to keep their relationship secret.Indeed, though the governor denies this part of the story, there’s an audio recording of the woman in question claiming Greitens took nude photographs of her, while she was blindfolded and her hands were tied, which was followed by an alleged verbal threat. (The recording has not been independently verified by MSNBC or NBC News.)The governor’s strategy, at least at first, was to respond to the scandal by keeping a low public profile

missouri gov. eric greitens halts marcellus williams' death

(ST. LOUIS) — Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has halted the scheduled execution of condemned killer Marcellus Williams after DNA raised questions about his guilt.The Republican governor said in an email Tuesday that he was issuing a stay of execution for Williams, who was convicted of fatally stabbing former St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Lisha Gayle during a burglary at her suburban St. Louis home in 1998. Williams was scheduled for execution at 6 p.m. Tuesday.The governor's decision comes after Williams' attorneys cited DNA evidence found on the murder weapon that matched another unknown person, but not Williams. But St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch said there was ample other evidence to convict Williams, and that there was "zero possibility" he was innocent.Greitens says he will

one step remains to correct the missouri human rights act

On May 9, the Missouri Legislature passed a significant amendment to the Missouri Human Rights Act (MHRA), which would bring the act into closer alignment with federal and other states' anti-discrimination statutes.

It cleared the Senate in early March. On Monday night, after extensive and impassioned debate, the House of Representatives voted 98-30 to pass the bill with only a few days remaining in the 2017 legislative session.The amendment makes several key changes to the MHRA landscape for Missouri employers. Here are some of them.Causation StandardAlthough contrary to the MHRA's express langu

robert mueller grand jury: why it's not a big deal, yet

Legal experts warn not to read too much into a report that special counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury as part of his probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.The decision was likely made for practical reasons, such as making it easier to call witnesses to testify, and does not necessarily indicate that the former FBI chief is ready to issue indictments, experts say.“When conducting an investigation, prosecutors commonly work with a grand jury,” said Melinda Haag, former U.S. Attorney in San Francisco. Because of its significant legal power and investigative reach, Haag says, impaneling of a grand journey can happen at almost any point during an investigation—not just near the end.The use of grand juries, which serve as forums for testimony and evidence gathering

Today’s installment of campaign-related news items from across the country.* In the new national Quinnipiac poll, Democrats have opened up a 17-point lead over Republicans on the generic congressional ballot, which is up a couple of points since last month’s poll. If the party can maintain that kind of advantage, Dems are likely to take back the House in the 2018 midterms.* Republicans really wanted Rep. Kevin Cramer (R) to take on Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D) in North Dakota next year, but he’s decided against it. The GOP congressman will instead run for re-election to the House.* As expected, Rep. Martha McSally (R) launched her Senate campaign in Arizona this morning. Hillary Clinton won McSally’s U.S. House seat in 2016, making this another key pick-up opportunity for Dems.* Republican effo
