The Latest: GOP Legislative Leaders Want Greitens To Resign

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri’s Republican legislative leadership is calling for fellow GOP Gov. Eric Greitens to resign, but the governor says he won’t quit.

Senate President Pro Tem Ron Richard, House Speaker Todd Richardson and other House leaders called on Greitens to step down Tuesday after the state’s attorney general found evidence that Greitens may have committed a felony in his use of a charity donor list for political purposes.

Richard also called for impeachment proceedings to begin immediately.

Greitens issued a statement Tuesday saying he won’t resign.

Greitens already faces a felony invasion-of-privacy charge in St. Louis for allegedly taking and transmitting a nonconsensual photo of a partially nude woman with whom Greitens said he had an extramarital affair.
