    MO governor admits to affair: allegedly snapped nude photo for blackmail

    Blackmail alleged as Governor Greitens admits to extramarital af - KMOV.com

    Details just coming out of Missouri as their governor is now acknowledging a recent affair with a married woman.

    There are accusations that at one point the woman ended up with a blind-fold on and the gov snapped a pic on his phone and threatened to blackmail her if she told anyone about their encounter.

    I'm surprised the blackmail thing is not the other way around.

    As near as I can tell from a quick and dirty, the affair happened in March 2015, when he was still a Democrat. He announced a run for governor (his current office) as a Republican in September 2015

    This makes for a confusing situation. Given recent developments, a Republican caught with his hand in the Nookie Jar seemingly must kill himself; but he was a Democrat at the time of infraction. So, might not an insincere and perfunctory apology suffice?

    Also the phone pic used as "blackmail" (Not sure the word is appropriate, perhaps "insurance". He wanted to make sure the other participant didn't later reveal the affair. Turns out he was prescient in that area) seems to have been taken while the woman was wearing a blindfold (With no mention that she was somehow forced to wear this. Playing a little "50 shades of Pink", perhaps?). We apparently should not judge the woman, who was complicit in breaking two marriage vows (because Mom's need action?) We must, however, judge the man for the exact same crime because; white male in power

    Not even sure why it makes a difference, as it seems like nonsense... but....

    He will run as a Republican in a state that re-elected Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon by 12 points in 2012.

    I don't care about his political party. Assuming this is true, he's an @$$ and the voters should consider this behavior next time around or clamor for his resignation. I'm not in Missouri so...

    Nor do I, but apparently a few days change between political parties can be the difference between a bad person and a good one.

    Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens admits affair after blackmail accusations surface


    The woman's ex-husband, who was also not named by KMOV-TV, provided an audio recording to the station on which his then-wife reveals she had a sexual encounter with Greitens in March 2015 at his St. Louis home
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Greitens

    On September 26, 2015, Greitens officially announced his candidacy for Governor of Missouri as a Republican.
    Try six months. And I was riffing on something you commented on; that Republicans were killing themselves when their indiscretions came to light

    Oh, and there is this testimonial of character

    KMOV played a recording made shortly after the alleged incident by the woman's husband (since divorced), in which she relates that Greitens invited her to his home, where she consented to being blindfolded, naked, with her hands taped to exercise rings above her head.
    You are, however, correct that none of this excuses breaking a vow made before God. Nothing can
