Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens may face a second felony charge

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (R) was indicted on a felony charge for invasion of an ex-lover's privacy in February and faced a harsh testimony from the same woman last week.

But he's still head of state in Missouri. Perhaps a second felony charge could change that.

Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley found evidence that Greitens used his charity's donor list for political fundraising, The Kansas City Star reported Tuesday. Hawley passed the information on to a prosecutor, and "given the value of the list in question, it is a felony," Hawley said.

The evidence shows Greitens is solely responsible for the crime, Hawley said, and that there was no wrongdoing on the part of the charity itself. Greitens denies the allegations.

"Fortunately for Josh, he's better at press conferences than the law," Greitens fired back in a statement. "Anyone who has set foot in a Missouri courtroom knows these allegations are ridiculous." Read more at The Kansas City Star.
