Eric Greitens made it clear that he plans on staying in the governor's mansion.
In his first interview since St. Louis station KMOV released a report alleging that he had an extramarital affair and blackmailed the woman to keep her revealing their relationship, Greitens again acknowledged the relationship and denied the blackmail.
He also insisted that he was not going anywhere, despite calls for him to resign.
"I'm staying, I'm staying," he said.
"The mistake that I made was that I was engaged in a consensual relationship with a woman who was not my wife."
