Politically Speaking: Breaking down the legal, legislative and political twists in Greitens saga

As Gov. Eric Greitens’ legal and political future continues to dominate the headlines, Politically Speaking is launching a standalone show detailing the developments in the Missouri chief executive’s saga.

St. Louis Public Radio’s political reporters will discuss what’s going on in court, the Missouri General Assembly and the electoral arena with the governor’s case. We’ll also answer your questions about the situation.

This week, St. Louis Public Radio’s Jason Rosenbaum, Jo Mannies and Rachel Lippmann are taking a look at:

  • How prominent attorneys are joining up with Greitens’ legal team — and Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s office.
  • Why some lawmakers are not happy that a House Committee looking into the Greitens indictment are keeping the meetings closed to the public.
  • Whether Greitens’ legal woes will affect the 2018 election cycle — especially when it comes to a nationally-watched U.S. Senate contest.
