Unnamed Woman in Blackmail Allegations against Governor Greitens wants Privacy

Unnamed Woman in Blackmail Allegations against Governor Greitens wants Privacy

Greitens admitted late Wednesday night that he was unfaithful to his wife Sheena in 2015. This was a deeply personal mistake.

Sheena Greitens said in a statement that "anything beyond that is between us and God".

Greitens, a former Navy SEAL, campaigned last November as a political outsider not beholden to special interest groups. He is the author of "Resilience: Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life" and, according to a profile in St. Louis Magazine, has had presidential aspirations since he was a young man.

Columbia College political science professor Terry Smith told ABC 17 News that Greitens' political future is essentially over.

"We want answers", said state Rep. Jean Evans, a Manchester Republican, who added the governor should resign if the blackmail allegations are true.

Greitens has received mixed reviews in the media as governor.

Curated from Missouri Gov. He was fined $1,000. In December the KC Star reported Greitens and his senior staff were using a secretive phone app that erases messages.

In response, the man's attorney also released a statement Friday.

In the recording, she said the encounter was consensual but said she was not aware a photo was taken until she saw a flash through the blindfold, followed by an alleged verbal threat by Greitens. The station aired portions of the recording.

The couple didn't address claims of blackmail, but attorney James Bennett refuted the allegations. It became clear that this was not a story that was going to go away.


Albert S. Watkins and the law firm of Kodner Watkins, LC represents the former husband of the woman with whom Governor Greitens has admitted having a protracted affair in 2015.

While Romine said that "all people are innocent until proven guilty" and that he is eager for the investigation to commence, he also suggested that his patience is not limitless. Once the governor released a public statement the papers pushed ahead with their stories.

Officials in Missouri have launched a criminal inquiry into Governor Eric Greitens, amid a claim that he took nude photos of a woman without her consent. She did not want to go on camera to tell her story. The Republican made castigating "career politicians" a standard part of his rhetorical pitch - even after the 2016 election season ended. I need to move forward in my life as I know you are doing as well. Greitens' wife, Sheena, said in a statement they still have "a loving marriage". These biting comments, made in 2016, came months after Greitens' affair occurred.

"This was March of 2015", wrote one woman, "most likely when your wife was pregnant or had a new baby".

In what may be a lucky accident, a Kansas City T-shirt shop had already come out with a shirt reading, "Eric Greitens is a Jerk".

But now the woman claims it was the governor who seduced her.

"I don't see how he can weather this political storm", Schaaf said. Any allegation of violence is completely false. The claim that this almost three-year old story has generated or should generate law enforcement interest is completely false.

"There was no blackmail, and that claim is false", Bennett said. This personal matter has been addressed by the Governor and Mrs. Greitens privately years ago when it happened. "The outrageous claims of improper conduct regarding these nearly three-year-ago events are false". But still other Republicans appear ready to forgive.

She asked Greitens, whom she called by his first name, to "please consider all who are involved and the circumstances around us".
