GOP senators call on Greitens to resign

(From Senators Doug Libla and Gary Romine)

Senators Doug Libla, R-Butler, and Gary Romine, R-Ste. Genevieve (pictured), are calling for the governor to seriously consider resigning in light of today’s grand jury indictment on felony invasion of privacy charges.

“The dark cloud that has been hanging over the Capitol since the State of the State address just got a lot darker,” Libla said. “A grand jury doesn’t hand down an indictment on a whim. The governor should seriously consider resigning, so we can remove the cloud and get back to the people’s work.”

Romine said if the governor fails to resign, the House of Representatives should begin impeachment proceedings immediately.

“We need to get this behind us for the betterment of the state,” Romine said. “It is clear the governor cannot lead effectively while defending himself against this criminal charge.”

Ohhh, it's way too late for the GOP to start acting like they have any ethics or morals now.
