Democrats Mulling Potential Special Session In Greitens Case

(JEFFERSON CITY) – Governor Eric Greitens has waived his right to face a Missouri House committee investigating him and says he will answer the panel’s questions after his criminal trial finishes. House Minority Leader Gail McCann Beatty is not buying the governor’s statement.

Beatty says she thinks legislators have enough votes to call a special session about potential penalties against the governor if necessary.

A House committee has released a report describing the governor’s former mistress alleging violence and sexual misconduct by Greitens. A judge could decide this week whether to dismiss the governor’s criminal case based on prosecutors allegedly withholding a videotaped interview of the woman.
