Prosecutors drop charge against Greitens

Posted online

Prosecutors yesterday dropped an invasion-of-privacy charge filed against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens.

Assistant St. Louis Circuit Attorney Ronald Sullivan cited the fact Greitens' attorneys planned to call to the stand the St. Louis circuit attorney, Kim Gardner.

Greitens' attorneys have specifically taken offense to the prosecutor's hiring of a private investigator. They claim that investigator, William Tisaby, is guilty of perjury.

Greitens was charged with felony invasion of privacy over allegations that he blackmailed a woman he was having an affair with before he was governor.

The governor still faces charges related to a donor list he allegedly used in his gubernatorial bid.

Prosecutors also are reportedly looking at new ways to move forward on the privacy invasion allegations.
