Women’s Group Demands MO Gov. Eric Greitens Resign Following Sexual Exploitation & Blackmail Allegations 

Reacting to reports that Missouri Governor Eric Greitens sexually exploited and blackmailed a woman he had an affair with in 2015, Nita Chaudhary, Co-founder of the leading women’s advocacy group, UltraViolet, issued the following statement demanding his immediate resignation:

“The allegations of sexual exploitation and blackmail against Governor Greitens are deeply disturbing and disgusting. Sexual exploitation and blackmail are crimes—plain and simple—and are unacceptable in any sphere of society, especially from our elected officials.

“The people of Missouri deserve better from their Governor. Eric Greitens should resign immediately.”
