Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens at his first State of the State address in 2017. The House and Senate have called a special session to consider Greitens' impeachment.

Another week, another raft of bad news for Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens. A new report details his use of a charity donor list for campaign fund-raising and the possibility he lied about it to the state ethics commission. We get up to speed with Bryan Lowry of the Kansas City Star. And even as legislators call a special session to consider impeachment, they march on with the state budget and other bills unrelated to gubernatorial scandals. House Democratic Caucus Secretary Rep. DaRon McGee of Kansas City helps us round up how education, taxes and transportation may fare in the session's last two weeks.
