Woman says Missouri gov. taped her hands before forced sex

A woman testified before Missouri lawmakers that Gov. Eric Greitens was aggressive with her during a forced sexual encounter and used a partially nude photo as blackmail to keep her from speaking about their affair, a report says.
The woman was Greitens’ hairdresser who, in a graphic report released by the Missouri House committee Wednesday, said he slapped, grabbed and called her derogatory names during their affair while he ran for office in 2015.
That March, she said he invited her to his St. Louis home while his wife was away. Greitens took the woman to his basement where he taped her hands, blindfolded her and then started kissing her, according to the report.
The woman said she didn’t permit him to touch her, and added she heard a click and saw a flash while she was tied up.
A St. Louis grand jury has indicted Missouri Governor Eric Greitens on a felony invasion of privacy charge related to the Republican's affair with a woman in 2015.
“Don't even mention my name to anybody at all, because if you do, I'm going to take these pictures, and I'm going to put them everywhere I can,” the woman testified Greitens told her. “They are going to be everywhere, and then everyone will know what a little whore you are.”
The woman said she was scared and started crying uncontrollably before Greitens forced her into giving him oral sex. She told lawmakers she complied because she thought that would allow her to leave his home.
The committee, which determined the woman’s testimony was credible, included five Republicans and two Democrats.
Greitens admitted the affair but denied the blackmail allegations.
In February, a St. Louis grand jury charged him with invasion of privacy.
He told reporters Wednesday before the report’s release he doesn’t plan on resigning, despite calls from lawmakers urging him to do so.

“This is a political witch hunt,” he said. “This is exactly like what's happening with the witch hunts in Washington, D.C.”
