ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison has issued a partial gag order for attorneys and witnesses in the criminal case against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens. Burlison issued the order Tuesday in response to a request from St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner. Gardner expressed concern that Greitens’ attorneys were trying the case in the media. The Republican governor is charged with invasion of privacy for allegedly taking a compromising photo without the consent of a woman with whom he was having an affair.
Meanwhile, the special legislative committee investigating Governor Eric Greitens was scheduled to meet Tuesday in Jefferson City. The committee’s report is expected to be released as early as tomorrow, though chairman Jay Barnes says they plan to continue their investigation through the end of the current legislative session that ends May 18th.
