Attorney of ex-husband in Greitens case received $100K anonymously

Posted online

The attorney for the man who first accused Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens of blackmail yesterday revealed he received $100,000 anonymously in January.

The attorney, Al Watkins, said the money that came in two $50,000 increments appeared to be dropped off by a courier.

"What I can tell you (is) we have received, in fact actively solicited, much like the governor, as much money as possible from as many sources as possible," Watkins said. “I’m expensive. I’m not free."

Watkins said he doesn't know who sent the money but believed it was meant to be used for the case.
