Wagner blasts Greitens, states that he’s unfit to lead Missouri

U.S. Rep. Ann Wagner took to Twitter on Thursday to blast Missouri Governor Eric Greitens following the release of the state’s House report on the governor’s alleged abuse.

The congresswoman stated that she believes it was a unfortunate chapter within the state’s history, and that she believes that Greitens is unfit to lead Missouri.

“This is a sad chapter in our history that should never have come to pass. Two months ago, after the disturbing allegations against the Governor came to light, I called for an immediate and transparent investigation,” Wagner said on Twitter. “The transcripts paint the picture of a vulnerable woman and a man who preyed on that vulnerability. I am disgusted, disheartened, and I believe Governor Greitens is unfit to lead our state.”

This comes on the heels of President Donald Trump on Wednesday signing Wagner’s anti-sex trafficking bill.

Wagner’s bill provides law enforcement and prosecutors the tools they need to obtain justice for human trafficking victims and hold websites that knowingly facilitate sex trafficking accountable.

The measure, which passed the Senate overwhelmingly by a vote of 97-2 last month, passed the House in February by a vote of 388-25 and is backed by a broad coalition of anti-trafficking advocates, law enforcement organizations, civil rights groups, faith-based advocates, and industry leaders on both sides of the aisle.

Rep. Wagner’s Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) targets online content that promotes or facilitates prostitution, making it punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

In addition to Wagner’s statements, Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzler called the findings disturbing but stopped short of stating that the governor should resign.

House Report

Gov. Greitens

The report that was released by the House Special Investigate Committee on Oversight, details the alleged conduct by Greitens with a woman who testified under oath that Greitens subjected her to non-consensual sexual activity and violence.

The report detailed the victim’s testimony that Greitens slapped her and called her a whore during one particular encounter. The report also detailed instances of slapping, shoving, and grabbing. On more than one occasion the woman was reduced to tears.

The committee was on a fact-finding mission regarding Greitens’ affair with his St. Louis-based hairdresser and a tape made available to KMOV regarding an incident where he allegedly takes a picture of her without her consent and uses it to ensure her silence.

He has denied the blackmail, has not confirmed or denied a picture, and called the investigation a “witch hunt” into a consensual relationship.

Just an hour before the report was released Greitens pushback against the findings calling them “lies.”

The report, which focuses on the unnamed woman’s recounting of events, pulls into question just how consensual the relationship was and other claims that have been made in recent weeks. Greitens declined to testify and did not respond to any of the committee’s request for documents and sworn answers to written interrogatories.

The House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight was formed by Speaker Todd Richardson on February 27, 2018, following the grand jury indictment of Greitens on a felony invasion-of-privacy charge in St. Louis.

    some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead
    of that, this is wonderful blog. A great read.

    I will definitely be back.

  17. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of
    this website. It’s simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you’ve done a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads
    very fast for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!

    nice practices and we are looking to swap techniques

    But think about if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this
    site could undeniably be one of the greatest in its field.

    Amazing blog!

  21. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours as of late, yet I never
    found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty value enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net will be a lot more helpful than ever
    before.

  22. I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours these days, but I by no means found any fascinating article
    like yours. It is pretty price sufficient for me. Personally, if
    all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the web
    can be a lot more useful than ever before.

  23. Excellent post. I used to be checking constantly
    this blog and I am inspired! Very useful information specifically
    the closing phase 🙂 I maintain such information much.
    I used to be looking for this particular information for a very long time.

    Thanks and best of luck.

    I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!

  25. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.

    I must say you’ve done a very good job with this.

    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera.
    Exceptional Blog!

  26. Hello there, just became aware of your blog through Google,
    and found that it is really informative. I’m going
    to watch out for brussels. I’ll appreciate if you continue this in future.
    Many people will be benefited from your writing.
    Cheers!

  27. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for
    about a year and am concerned about switching to another
    platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is
    there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?

    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  28. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyway,
    just wanted to say great blog!

  29. This is the perfect webpage for anybody who would like to understand this topic.
    You understand a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you
    (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a fresh spin on a subject which has been written about for years.
    Great stuff, just great!

  30. of course like your website but you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very troublesome to inform the reality however I’ll definitely come again again.

  31. Nice blog here! Also your site loads up very fast!

    What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host?

    I wish my website loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  32. I think what you said made a bunch of sense.

    However, think on this, suppose you were to write
    a killer headline? I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t good, however suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more?
    I mean Wagner blasts Greitens, states that he’s unfit to
    lead Missouri – Clayton Times is kinda boring. You
    ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post headlines
    to get viewers to click. You might add a related video or
    a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. Just
    my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.
