"Prosecutors have dropped one felony charge against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, who will be will be resigning on Friday amid scandals about alleged misbehavior on the campaign trail and in the bedroom.
The governor's resignation was the result of a deal with prosecutors, who agreed to drop the charge if Greitens stepped down, St. Louis Public Radio reports.
The charge of computer tampering that was dismissed Wednesday stems from accusations of campaign finance violations — Greitens allegedly took a list of donors to his charity and improperly used it for fundraising. Prosecutors say they have enough evidence to convict Greitens but that his conviction wouldn't be worth pursuing after his resignation.
Greitens is also accused of taking a nude photo of a lover without her permission and using it to attempt to blackmail her into silence; a special prosecutor is currently deciding whether to refile charges in that case.”*

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)
It's called the rule of law. It follows its course. This whiney bitch needs to face the full weight of the law and not be allowed to strike into any deal. If this was a blue collar worker they would have been waiting in jail pending a court case.
In the words of the inbred, racist, white supremacist assholes that comment on these decent clips, "he din do nuffin". Actually he committed a crime against his sadistic, right-wing, Christian fundamentalist religion.

Not once during the statement did Greiten’s accept any responsibility for what had happened to him, family and friends. It is clear he blames everyone who uncovered his crimes, a typical Jewish politicians response.
Well I guess if they are not going to prosecute Trump why should they prosecute Greitens? These are evil people allowed to get away with anything simply as they have some power. NO ONE should be above the law. Wow, if anyone else had done this they would be prosecuted and in jail.
Family Values Republicans are all serious shitstains. I mean, for a Democrat to get called out on being bad, he or she barely has to look at nudie pictures on Google. For a Republican to get attention for their bullshit, they have to get caught having sex with a minor, having gay sex in their political office, having an affair, blackmail, pedophillia or outright rape. Republicans, especially the Family Values group, are SO consistently involved in these awful sorts of sex crimes that it's a wonder any of them bother with the platform anymore. It's like you can basically COUNT on these people to be sexual deviants if they run on that.
I mean, there's the glaring example of Trump's sex crimes; he's the President and is still in office despite how many women have come forward, and then we have Al Franken, who was forced out of office because he took a stupid picture 10+ years ago where he wasn't even touching anyone. I don't even know how people can handle this double standard anymore. How do you rail against such fluff crimes committed by a Democrat and then turn a blind eye to Trump being accused of raping a 15 year old?
I say to the governor welcome to Black America, you think the laws that you backup don't affect a whole large portion of the population, they may be black, but guess what it's coming back to get you. REALTALK
So he was right...
The charges were dropped and the DA announced that they will not be refiling...
Also, the charges were dropped May 18th...
Another error is that tyt falsely stated that a "special prosecutor" is looking into more charges which is false. No "special prosecutor" has been tasked or formed...
Tyt loves to add their "opinions" as news weeks after the facts, in this case, prove them wrong...
What part is wrong...?
They are late to the party. 13 days late...
They falsely reported that a special prosecutor was tasked which is false. Kim Gardner is a St. Louis Circuit Attorney, not a "special prosecutor" Major difference.
"On May 18, 2018, Cole County Prosecutor Mark Richardson announced he would not be filing any additional charges against Greitens"
This guy was afraid that if people found out he had an affair it would hurt his political career. So then he kidnapped, tied-up, raped, and blackmailed his mistress without ever stopping to consider what that might do to his political career if people found out. Instead of cutting him a deal they should give him the maximum sentence on all charges.
So is this guy going to be put on the sex offender registry? Many have been put on it for bullshit reasons like peeing in a bush, mooning someone, etc. His position and wealth should not save him from that.
