COLUMBIA, Mo. — Today is Governor Greitens’ birthday, and the Missouri Democratic Party has an exclusive look at the Governor’s gift from his buddy Josh Hawley! Building on his record of protecting the Governor, Hawley has given Greitens a coupon for yet another sham investigation into the Governor’s misbehavior.
The two pals have a history of giving each other lavish presents. During the 2016 Attorney General’s race, the Governor contributed $50,000 to Hawley’s campaign. Earlier this year, Josh Hawley let Governor Greitens off the hook through a sham investigation into the Governor’s use of Confide — Hawley had the Governor’s back when he did not attempt to retrieve any of the text messages in question, relied heavily on staff testimony, and did not attempt to interview the Governor or challenge the Governor’s assertion of executive privilege. What will Hawley let Greitens get away with next?
