JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Latest on allegations against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (all times local):
The chairman of a House panel investigating allegations against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens says it has used subpoenas in its probe, but he’s declining to say who has testified or about what.
Committee Chairman Jay Barnes said Wednesday that the panel is on track to submit a report on its findings within a 40-day deadline and further details on its work would be available then.
The panel was created after Greitens was indicted last month by a St. Louis grand jury on a charge of invasion of privacy for allegedly taking a nonconsensual photo of a partially nude woman with whom he has acknowledged having an affair in 2015.
Last week, an attorney for the ex-husband of the woman said she had testified before the House panel.
A Democratic consultant says he is filing a new ethics complaint alleging Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens falsely reported how his campaign obtained a donor list from a charity he founded.
The complaint Wednesday from former state Democratic Party Chairman Roy Temple also alleges that Greitens’ gubernatorial campaign failed to report the receipt of an email list from The Mission Continues. Temple asks the Missouri Ethics Commission to refer Greitens’ case to a prosecutor.
The Republican governor originally denied working off a Mission Continues donor list but acknowledged in a consent decree last year with the ethics panel that his campaign received the list. Greitens amended his finance reports to show the list as a donation from a campaign worker.
The Mission Continues has denied providing the donor list.
