Lawmakers Call On Greitens To Resign

Missouri Reps. Kevin Corlew (left), a Republican, and Greg Razer, a Democrat, both of Kansas City.

On Thursday, a St. Louis grand jury indicted Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens on a felony charge of invasion of privacy. The Republican is accused of taking a nude photograph of a woman—with whom he has acknowledged having an affair—without her consent and transmitting it in a way it could be accessed by computer.  Two lawmakers, one Republican and one Democrat, tell us why Greitens will have difficulty governing now and why they think he should resign.


  • Rep. Kevin Corlew, R-Kansas City; Chair, Judiciary Committee, Missouri House of Representatives
  • Rep. Greg Razer, D-Kansas City; member of Missouri House of Representatives
  • KCUR's Erica Hunzinger, editor, Harvest Public Media
