Rep. Kevin Corlew, a Kansas City Republican, joined the growing chorus of GOP lawmakers who want the governor to step down Thursday evening.

Probably easier for him to hold on with a little duct tape.

I'd venture to say it is probably hard to let go if your hands are bound

Why is no one saying "Rape". Every news report is saying things like "forced non-consensual sex" and "Unwilling sexual encounter". It's Rape. He is being accused of rape.

Is this a different story (and woman) than the story around the illicit photographs he allegedly used to blackmail a woman to keep her quiet?

At one time Greitens dreams were to run for President. No matter the outcome of troubles now I would imagine those dreams are no longer.

So he maybe took some pictures, did some rapey things, possibly blackmailed a woman and also could have engaged in felony tampering to solicit campaign donations. Sounds downright presidential to me.

Absolutely, I'm sure Trump is wondering why he didn't think of political advertisements like these.
