Greitens claims complete exoneration upon release of MEC report

By 97.1 FM Talk

(KFTK - St. Louis) The Missouri Ethics Commission (MEC) has released an order regarding campaign finance violations against former Governor Eric Greitens, A New Missouri, Inc and Greitens for Missouri.

After a  20-month investigation, the REPORT states, “The undersigned parties jointly agree that § 130.058, RSMo, requires that Mr. Greitens accept responsibility for all reporting violations by Greitens for Missouri, even where the MEC investigation found no evidence that Mr. Greitens knew of the violations.”

The former Governor says, "it is good to have been exonerated."

A second REPORT states, “Beyond the facts articulated in the Joint Stipulation document, the MEC investigation did not find reasonable grounds exist to support these alleged violations of Chapter 13, RSMo, and dismissed these allegations against these Respondents.”

Marc will speak with Greitens live, in-studio on Friday, February 14, 2020 at 7:30am.
