Gov. Greitens indicted on privacy invasion

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens announced his resignation Tuesday and will leave office Friday, June 1.

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has been indicted on invasion of privacy charges stemming from an extramarital affair from 2015.

According to the Kansas City Star, the felony charge was handed down by a St. Louis Grand Jury and alleges Greitens took a nude photograph of the woman involved in the affair while she was blindfolded and her hands were bound without her knowledge and threatened to release the photo.

Since news of the affair broke in January, there have been allegations of blackmail surrounding the governor. Greitens has admitted to the affair, but denied all blackmail charges. He was arrested on the indictment charges in St. Louis Thursday afternoon, according to the Kansas City Star.
