JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – State Senator Jamilah Nasheed (D-St. Louis) today called on House Speaker Todd Richardson to begin the impeachment proceedings of Missouri Governor Eric Greitens following Greitens’ indictment for felony invasion of privacy.
“Gov. Greitens has to go,” Sen. Nasheed said. “Missourians thought they voted for a person of character and integrity, and instead they got a liar and alleged criminal. I am calling on the Honorable Speaker of the House Todd Richardson to immediately begin the impeachment proceedings so that the people of Missouri can move forward.”
Under Missouri law, the process to impeach the state’s governor must begin in the Missouri House of Representatives.
