ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- (WDAF) -- Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is under fire for an extramarital affair. He sat down with FOX 2 in St. Louis to answer questions about blackmail, violence, and investigations.
The governor had not answered any questions in person until this interview. Reporter Vic Faust has known Eric Greitens for the past 30 years, and made clear that any topic was up for discussion.
"I'll ask you right off the bat, whats going on? We know about the affair you admitted to, but was there some sort of threats with her or blackmailing?" asks Faust.
"There's no blackmail, there's no violence. The mistake I made was that I engaged in a consensual relationship with a woman who wasn't my wife. It's a mistake that I'm deeply sorry for. Sorry to Sheena, the boys, and everybody who relied on us," said Gov. Eric Greitens.
Faust asks, "This woman, was she restrained or photographed against her will?"
