Greitens files temporary restraining order against Hawley, requests special prosecutor

"And he did all of this without the permission of The Mission Continues".

August 2016: Greitens wins a tough, four-person race for the Republican nomination for governor.

The Associated Press first reported in October 2016 that Greitens' campaign had obtained a list of top donors to The Mission Continues and raised almost $2 million for his campaign from donors on that list. His spokeswoman Mary Compton said in a statement that Hawley became involved after the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported in February 2018 that it had obtained a copy of an email indicating that a Greitens employee who previously worked at The Mission Continues had shared the donor list with Laub and Michael Hafner, who had been working for Greitens' gubernatorial exploratory committee, in January 2015.

Eric Greitens says allegations that he potentially broke the law by using a donor list from a charity he founded are "ridiculous".

Attorney General Josh Hawley announced Tuesday that his investigation into a veterans charity founded by Greitens found evidence that Greitens may have committed a felony in his use of its donor list for political purposes.

Greitens quickly replied that he won't quit and hopes to be vindicated at an upcoming criminal trial. He calls it a personal mistake.

Hawley says it's up to the St. Louis circuit attorney to decide whether to charge Greitens with a crime. That case also has been referred to the St. Louis prosecutor. Greitens is accused of taking and transmitting an unauthorized photo of the woman while she was partially nude, bound and blindfolded in the basement of his home in March 2015. But he has denied blackmailing her or other criminal wrongdoing. Mr. Greitens however used that list for political fundraising. Hawley confirms through a spokeswoman that his office is investigating the charity.

Earlier this month, Hawley said Greitens should step down after a special Missouri legislative committee released a report detailing allegations of an affair and invasion of privacy between the governor and his hairdresser. In it, the woman testifies that Greitens restrained, slapped, threatened, grabbed and shoved her during a series of sexual encounters that at times left her crying and afraid. The allegations have prompted several lawmakers to ask the governor to resign, including state senator Ron Richard who released a statement saying, "these alleged illegal actions are further harmful to the people of Missouri and do not represent Missouri values". Claire McCaskill, whom Hawley is seeking to unseat.
