Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, has joined other Missouri legislators on Friday calling for the removal of Gov. Eric Greitens following the news of his indictment.
Nasheed in a statement stated that the governor should be removed for the good of all residents of the state.
“Gov. Greitens has to go,” 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.”
