Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (R) was accused of having an affair with a married woman in 2015. He reportedly blackmailed the mistress in question, threatening to release nude photos of her, to keep her quiet. He admitted to the relationship, but not the blackmail.
On Thursday, he was indicted in St. Louis on a first-degree felony invasion of privacy.
In a statement following the ruling, Greitens admits his "personal mistake," but stood by his denial of the blackmail charge. He also referred to the prosecutor, Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner, as a "reckless liberal."
The Democratic Governors Association called for Greitens to resign, and the Missouri Senate Republicans find the allegations "shocking and concerning."
