Audio: Senator calls on Missouri House speaker to begin impeachment process of Greitens

Missouri House of Representatives

State Senator Jamilah Nasheed wants House Speaker Todd Richardson of Poplar Bluff to immediately begin impeachment proceedings of fellow Republican Governor Greitens.

Nasheed, a St. Louis Democrat, tells Missourinet her call is in response to a St. Louis City grand jury indicting Greitens for a felony invasion of privacy charge.

 

 

A statement from House Republican leadership says they will “carefully examine the facts contained in the indictment” and determine whether the governor can lead while a felony case moves forward. It says the group will create a legislative panel to investigate the issue.
