This is how the GOP loses some middle class working families: The party of the patriarchy in passing offers up another self selected sacrifice to family values. After all what do a few lies, a bit of blackmail, and revenge porn matter as long as you retain power? amirite?

A committee of the Missouri state House is expanding its investigation into Republican Gov. Eric Greitens, who admitted to having an extramarital affair with his hair stylist but denies he abused her. The panel will make recommendations about whether to pursue impeachment. Greitens is a hard scrabble full metal wingnut, and deserves the fate that befalls him.

The decision follows an explosive 24-page report that was released on Wednesday by the House's Special Investigative Committee on Oversight. The document contains testimony from "Witness 1," a woman who alleged that Greitens subjected her to sexual and physical abuse.

She testified that during their first encounter in 2015, "for whatever reason, I trusted him" but that she didn't want to "do anything physical with him." Nevertheless she said that is what ensued.
