AG Hawley Says Greitens May Have Committed a Felony. It’s Time to Resign
Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens’ legal problems grew Tuesday, providing more evidence that he should resign or be impeached as quickly as possible.
Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley — like Greitens, a Republican — said his office has found evidence the governor obtained and transmitted a donor list from The Mission Continues, a charity the governor founded before taking office.
“Mr. Greitens … used that list for political fundraising,” Hawley said. “He did all of this without the permission of The Mission Continues.”
The use is “electronic theft,” Hawley said. Because the value of the fundraising list exceeds $500, the governor may be guilty of a felony.
