Former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens Files Papers to Run for Office in 2024

Former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens filed to run for office in Missouri in 2024.

In February former Governor Greitens was exonerated of any wrongdoing by the Missouri Ethics Commission.

KMOV reported:

Former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens has filed to run for office in 2024.

According to the filing, the name of the committee is Greitens for Missouri and says Greitens plans to run for office as a Republican.

It does not specify what office Greitens will be running for.

The paperwork was filed with the Missouri Ethics Committee on June 9, 2020.

More than two years ago, KMOV back alley reporter, Lauren Trager, broke the story that then popular Republican Gov. Eric Greitens had had an extramarital affair with his hairdresser, Katrina Sneed.

Trager’s reporting included an allegation that Greitens took a non-consensual nude or partially nude photo of K. Sneed to “blackmail” her into silence over their affair. The allegation of a non-consensual photo ultimately led St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner to indict Greitens on a charge of felony invasion of privacy days later. 

The Gateway Pundit later reported that Gardner and her chief investigator withheld information in their case against Greitens. Kim Gardner chose not to have the St. Louis Police Department investigate the allegations against the Governor and instead hired William Tisaby, CEO of Enterra, LLC and a former FBI agent.  Gardner also met with Tisaby and Soros operatives before announcing the charges.

The charges were dismissed several months later over prosecutorial misconduct, including potential criminal conduct. The alleged photo was never found. No witness, including K. Sneed, had personal knowledge the alleged photo ever even existed.

Governor Greitens resigned in May 2019.  The popular governor was facing possible impeachment from the Republican-led House.

In February the Missouri Ethics Commission announced that Former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is fully exonerated.
