Ed Emery praises Greitens' character for "working through difficult situation"

Sen. Ed Emery, R-Lamar, addressed the Eric Greitens scandal by praising Greitens and his wife, according to an Associated Press article.

State Sen. Ed Emery said Greitens called him Friday to apologize for the affair and ask for forgiveness. Emery said he was “amazed at the character” of both Greitens and his wife, Sheena, for working through the difficult situation.

“I made sure the governor knew that I understood the kind of pressure that men were under …. that I’ve prayed for him and will continue to pray for him,” Emery said.

Emery did not explain what special kind of pressure men are supposed to be under.

Greitens admitted to having an affair with his hairdresser in 2015, but has denied allegations that he blackmailed her and slapped her.

I don't think "the he kind of pressure that men [are] ... under" is an excuse for cheating on your spouse or lying to the public!

"We promised the people of Missouri that we would fight for the least among us, the counted out, and the forgotten. We have, and we will." Eric Greitens

You have to realize that Family Values are different for Republican Politicians than they are for the rest of us. The Governor should have taken note of Trump's actions. When you get caught, you just pay her off instead of blackmailing her.
