Missouri Governor Indicted, Republicans Blame George Soros

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens (R) was taken into custody and charged last night for what could be described as creating revenge porn.

The charge -- felony invasion of privacy -- stems from an affair he had with a woman who he took photos of without consent and the details are much worse than that sounds by itself.

The encounter between Greitens and the woman, who knew him because she cut his hair, allegedly took place in the basement of the Greitens family home, where Greitens told her he was going to show her how to do a "proper pull-up."

The woman described how Greitens allegedly tied her to exercise equipment, blindfolded her, and pulled her pants down before photographing her. She told her ex-husband that she could see a camera flash through the material covering her eyes.

Greitens released his own statement last night in which he described local St. Louis prosecutor Kim Gardner as a "reckless liberal" and now the state Republican party has released their own statement.

The State GOP's statement implies that Kim Gardner is some kind of Jewish sleeper agent.

Just in case they delete it, the statement begins by claiming that Kim Gardner has "received more than $200,000 from George Soros groups."

Let's be perfectly clear: the idea that a Jewish septuagenarian holocaust survivor is personally funding a vast conspiracy to control the courts and the media is pure antisemitism. It is literally an accusation fascists used to justify the holocaust.

The far more simple explanation is that Eric Greitens is a sick fuck who is responsible for his own actions.

    A Republican? Taking responsibility for their own actions? Let me think about that….

    What is it about consent that Righties find so confusing?

      That the women keep refusing to give it?

      Rightie: “I mean, these darned women just don’t seem to realize that they’re there to satisfy whatever the man wants, like Jesus said.”

        True, but Righties are confused on consent generally.

        Consider their go-to argument against marriage equality, that if two men can marry then someone could marry their dog or what would keep pedophiles from marrying their victims? Legally, neither dogs nor children have the capacity to consent (to anything) while adults do, but Righties made—and continue to make—some variant of that argument over and over and over.

    Hillary Clinton’s and George Soros must really hate each other.

    Geez Louise, I have been a liberal for decades. I generally vote for Democrats (after I have studied their platforms and perspectives on important issues). I have read a lot of liberal books, columns, publications, articles, blogs, etc. over the years. That being said, I am not a professional political scientist, and didn’t major in it by any means.

    But with all that, I have never read anything by or about George Soros. I have never seen a liberal publication of any sort quote George Soros. I have never seen a liberal publication thank Soros for his generous funding. I have never seen a liberal publication recommend an excellent book to learn all about this boogeyman that has republicans peeing their pants all the time. I know nothing about him and wouldn’t recognize him if someone showed me a picture. He damn sure has never paid me for anything, least of all my very much less than memorable comments anywhere.

    Come to think of it, I don’t know anything about that Alinsky guy either.

    It isn’t Soros or Alinsky that has caused me to oppose the republicans on just about every issue. It is they themselves, the republicans, and their complete and total abdication of morals, ethics, patriotism, and human decency.

    Conservatives do something wrong: It’s a liberal conspiracy!
    Liberals do something wrong: See?! Liberals are fundamentally evil!

    Will the hypocrisy never end?
