Missouri governor indicted in fallout from affair

(JTA) – Eric Greitens, the first Jewish governor of Missouri, has been indicted for felony invasion of privacy after allegedly blackmailing a former lover.

Greitens, a Republican, has resisted bipartisan calls to step down after news emerged he had an affair in 2015, and allegedly threatened to release a photo of the woman in a compromising position if she ever revealed it. Greitens has admitted to the affair but says he did nothing illegal.

The grand jury indictment accuses him of photographing the woman, then transmitting the photo “in a manner that allowed access to that image via a computer,” according to the Kansas City Star.

Greitens, a former Navy SEAL has seven military awards include the Bronze Star. He was elected in November 2016.
