The following statement was made by Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04) in response the General Assembly report on Governor Eric Greitens:
“The report issued today concerning Governor Greitens and his behavior surpasses disturbing. It is disgusting. This is not behavior befit for a leader in Missouri or anywhere else for that matter. Although he is certainly due his day in court, these reports further call into question his character as an individual, regardless of whether a law has been broken or not. I appreciate the continued deliberate steps taken by the Missouri General Assembly to address this matter. It is no easy task and they have done hard work. My prayers continue for Mrs. Greitens, their children and others who have been impacted by this.
More now than ever before we are in desperate need of honorable people with integrity willing to dedicate themselves to public service. Our government needs it and the people of Missouri and our nation deserve it.”
