Statement from Senate Democratic Leaders Sen. Walsh and Sen. Curls
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Senate Democratic Leaders Sen. Gina Walsh (D – Bellefontaine Neighbors) and Sen. Kiki Curls (D-Kansas City) today issued the following statement:
“In light of the very serious allegations made against the governor, there are many questions still left unanswered. But let’s be clear – violence and threats against women are never acceptable. Allegations of extortion, coercion, or threats of violence must be investigated by the proper authorities. People accused of these egregious acts do not get to waive off the scrutiny of law enforcement simply because they are in a position of power; and victims of these crimes deserve our full support.”
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. –The following is a statement from State Senator Jill Schupp (D-Creve Coeur).
“The allegations made against Missouri’s governor are deeply, deeply troubling. My thoughts and prayers are with the First Lady and their two young children as they work through this private matter. But private issues aside, the accusations made against the governor must be taken seriously and thoroughly investigated in order to restore the public’s trust to our state’s highest office. Violent threats or intimidation by anyone is never acceptable.”
Jefferson City, Mo. — Following is a statement issued by Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft this morning.
“I am deeply concerned by these complex allegations, which must be taken seriously. I will continue to pray for the Greitens family and ask the people of Missouri to join me in doing the same.”
