MISSOURI (Reuters) – Governor Eric Greitens is resigning to avoid potential impeachment after he became embroiled in scandals tied to an extramarital affair and his political fundraising. Greitens told a press conference after an unfavorable ruling earlier in his computer tampering trial related to allegations he illegally obtained a donor list to aid his 2016 election campaign from a veterans’ charity he founded in 2007. “Today I am announcing that I will resign as governor of Missouri, effective on Friday.”
