MO: Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens indicted for felony invasion of privacy

[stltoday.com]

ST. LOUIS • Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, who was swept into office in 2016 with a vow to clean up a corrupt state government, was indicted and booked Thursday on a felony invasion of privacy charge for allegedly taking and transmitting a non-consensual photo of his partly nude lover shortly before that campaign started.

It stems from a scandal that broke last month, in which Greitens was accused of threatening his lover with the photo — an allegation that isn’t mentioned in the indictment. Greitens has admitted having an extramarital affair, but has denied the rest.

When the people continually follow AND elect members of the TWO parties and get the same results it makes me wonder.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.

The problem is that 1/3 of the people eligible to vote in America don’t care to vote in presidential elections
http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2017/05/15/u-s-voter-turnout-trails-most-developed-countries/
and that grows to about 2/3 non voters during midterms, when it is even more important to elect the law makers in Congress. When you see that not even half of those voters elected this recent president, you can assume that on average about 1/5 to 1/3 of the population actually elects our leaders. As the great leader says: sad.
The people have the power, but not enough use it.

I am a Missouri resident and have been watching the political arena on this to see what it means to those on the registry. HB 2402 just passed through the House on its second reading; this bill would take MO from a lifetime registry state for all offenses to a tiered system. This bill was sponsored by Representative Kurt Bahr. I would also like to bring to the attention of MO residents HB 2418, which is being sponsored by Representative Chrissy Sommer and would restrict lodging for MO residents (I think this bill is also on its second reading). Those… Read more »

Two thoughts come to mind.

1.) One should probably be very skeptical about any politician who promises to clean up the corruption inherent in Missouri state politics.
2.) Missouri is the “Show Me State.”

Non-contact “offence?” One point higher for the governor on the Static-99R!

Funny observation. But, ah, yes, I’ve always wondered why the STATIC-99R developers insist in forcing the British/Canadian spelling (offence versus offense) on a test being used on us Americans. Just as the risk factors are from Canadian and UK offenders from the 1970s…

But according to a “study” by Karl Hanson’s Carleton University student (Seung C. Lee) and Karl Hanson himself, the Static-99R applies to Californians as well–though only for five years after release. Also, look at how SARATSO pathetically cites “studies” that are authored/co-authored by Karl Hanson. As if SARATSO and CASOMB do not see the blatant conflict-of-interest in using validation “studies” that are written by the Static-99R developers (Hanson et al.)? Amy Phenix, Yolanda Fernandez, Andrew J. R. Harris, Maaike Helmus, Karl Hanson, and David Thornton are the “developers” to the Static-99R. Note that in almost every “study” used by CASOMB/SARATSO… Read more »

The state has to prove that the photo was non consensual. No way that will happen. This case will go nowhere.

@Josh james:
The state has to prove that the photo was non consensual. No way that will happen.
—–
Prosecutor to woman under oath on the stand (either voluntarily or by subpoena): “Ma’am, did you give consent to the Defendant to take these photos of you? Did you have any knowledge the Defendant was photographing you?”
Woman on stand: “No, I did not give consent. No, I did not know he was photographing me.”

Doesn’t sound so tough.

Too funny!
Your move, Governor…

“Former stripper who filmed lovers seeks pardon from Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens” (http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/former-stripper-who-filmed-lovers-seeks-pardon-from-missouri-gov/article_06d8cd2e-4425-5d9c-a982-b79b20a0dc62.html)

Also, apparently the Legislature doesn’t see it as the political stunt the Gov. claims: “Mo. lawmakers could begin Gov. Greitens impeachment process” (http://fox2now.com/2018/02/26/mo-lawmakers-could-begin-gov-greitens-impeachment-process/)
