Published

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Thursday released audio of a woman claiming that she had an extramarital affair with Missouri’s Republican Governor Eric Greitens, during which he allegedly took a photograph of her naked and blindfolded and threatened to share the image if she told others about their encounter.

Greitens, a former Navy SEAL, acknowledged the affair on Wednesday in a statement to News 4, though he denied blackmailing the woman through his attorney in a Twitter post Thursday.

The released audio is a recorded conversation between the woman and her now ex-husband, who told News 4 there’s “no worse person” than someone like Greitens.

“He took a picture of my wife naked as blackmail,” the ex-husband said. “There is no worse person. I think it’s as bad as it gets, It’s as bad as it gets when someone takes advantage of something.”

In the recording, the woman is heard telling her then-husband she had “I met Eric a year ago and I instantly had a big crush on him.”

“Tell me the truth,” her ex-husband implores. “The truth. Only the truth.”

“So on Saturday morning before my first client, I did go to his house,” she said.

“For the first time?” he asked.
“For the first time, ever,” she replied. “Like said, nothing, period, had ever happened or taken place until this snowball, this f*cking tornado just happened. I know I brought it on.”

Later in the audio, the woman said Greitens invited her downstairs to teach her “how to do a proper pull-up.”

“I knew that he was being sexual and I still let him,” she said. And he used some sort of tape, I don’t what it was, and taped my hands to these rings and then put a blindfold on me.”

“I didn’t even know,” she continued. “I feel like I didn’t even know. I was jut numb. I just stood there and didn’t f*cking know.”

“He stepped back, I saw a flash through the blindfold and he said, ‘you’re never going to mention my name,’ otherwise there will be pictures of me everywhere,” the woman alleged.

A mail carrier in West Virginia is facing jail time after he was caught tampering with absentee ballot requests in a way that suppressed turnout in local Democratic primary elections.

BuzzFeed News reports that 47-year-old Thomas Cooper pleaded guilty this week to attempting to defraud the residents of West Virginia of a fair election when he switched West Virginia residents' ballot requests from Democratic to Republican ballots.

Cooper altered a total of eight different ballot requests, although he told investigators that he did it "as a joke" and didn't mean to cause any harm. Cooper's attorney, Scott Curnutte, similarly told BuzzFeed News that Cooper's actions had just been a "silly lark."

Published

on

It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.

Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.

Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.
