BREAKING: MONEY MAN Dropped Off $100,000 to STL ATTORNEY to Launch Governor Greitens SEX SCANDAL


The attorney representing the man who accused Governor Eric Greitens of having an affair with his wife received $100,000 in two checks from a mysterious money man before they went public with the case.
The Kansas City Star reported:

The attorney for the man who first accused Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens of blackmail said Monday that he received $100,000 from an anonymous source in January.

Al Watkins, the St. Louis attorney who represents the ex-husband of Greitens’ alleged victim, confirmed the payments, which came in two $50,000 increments, shortly after a St. Louis judge ruled Monday that he could not also represent an investigator in the case.

The decision of the ex-husband to go public with the allegations that Greitens had photographed his ex-wife without her consent to keep her from speaking about an affair has led to a felony indictment in St. Louis and a Missouri House investigation that could lead to impeachment.

The investigators never found a photo by Greitens.
This was all a horrific hit piece by Democrats to take down a Republican governor.

This is getting shadier by the day.

KMOV reported:

The attorney for the ex-husband of the woman who had an affair with Missouri Governor Eric Greitens now claims he, the attorney, received two $50,000 cash payments.

According to Al Watkins, the attorney representing the ex-husband, the payments took place on the day News 4 interviewed the ex-husband for our story and the following day.

Supporters of the governor have been questioning the motivations of the ex-husband to tell the story of the affair, and to share the secret recording he made of her back in 2015 detailing the affair.

Watkins claims he does not know who the money came from and says the payments were dropped off at his office by courier service. He said he had reported the mysterious payment to the FBI, a claim KMOV has not yet confirmed.

KMOV’s Lauren Trager and other St. Louis reporters have asked Watkins repeatedly about the payments. News 4 most recently asked about two weeks ago, and Watkins denied that any payments were made, he then made a plea for funds to pay his legal bills.
