Rauner Must Call on Governor Eric Greitens to Resign
Rauner’s Campaign Ad Star Indicted on a Felony Charge
This afternoon, Governor Eric Greitens of Missouri was indicted stemming from an alleged sexual blackmail scandal. Governor Bruce Rauner was featuring Greitens in his campaign ads when these allegations first became public and refused to call for Greitens to step down before an investigation was complete. Rauner did remove the ads, but only for scheduling purposes.
Now, a City of St. Louis Grand Jury has formally indicted Greitens on a Felony Invasion of Privacy charge.
“Governor Bruce Rauner stood by Governor Eric Greitens even as these disturbing allegations became public,” said DGA Illinois Communications Director Sam Salustro. “But now that Governor Greitens has been criminally indicted, Governor Rauner must to call on him to resign immediately.”
