He will officially step down on Friday, June 1. "Just as I believe Mr. Greitens decision to resign is best for our state, I have to consider the totality of the situation", Gardner said. Baker, the special prosecutor now tasked with looking into the invasion of privacy case, issued a statement last night indicating that her investigation remains active. She said he threatened and mistreated her.

"It's clear for the forces that oppose us, there's no end in sight", he said.

Greitens announced his resignation Tuesday.

Greitens' resignation also allows him to avoid the potentially dubious distinction of becoming the first Missouri governor ever impeached.

The accuser's disturbing allegations were detailed in a report by a Special Investigative Committee on Oversight of the Missouri House of Representatives. Mike Parson is the current lieutenant governor in the Show-Me-State. The woman's name never has been officially released; it is redacted from the legislative documents and she is identified only by her initials in court filings. Separately, his campaign received some scrutiny for obtaining and using a charity donor list as part of the fundraising effort for his bid in the Missouri governor's race.

On May 17, Greitens suggested to a crowd of supporters gathered for an agricultural event that he wouldn't give up.

"The last few months have been incredibly hard for me, for my family, for my team, for my friends and for many, many people".

On Tuesday, Greitens remained defiant even while resigning.

"I am not ideal".

"I have not broken any laws or committed any offense worthy of this treatment", he added at a brief news conference, at one point clearly holding back tears.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement proposed that anyone claiming custody of unaccompanied alien children be fingerprinted. With more than 10,000 children in custody ... the program has grown vastly beyond its original intention.

"Let there be no doubt, I condemn Eric Greitens' behavior". While Greitens enjoyed wide GOP majorities in the legislature he often clashed with lawmakers.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner announced the decision Wednesday, a day after Greitens' surprise announcement that he would step down effective Friday afternoon. That resulted in a felony invasion of privacy charge against Greitens in February.

Since that time, Greitens has been under investigation by a special House Oversight Committee regarding the allegation made by a former mistress and questionable use of a campaign donor list form his charity The Mission Continues.

Prosecutors say he took a compromising photo of a woman with whom he had an affair without her consent in 2015, before his election. Greitens has denied the criminal accusations, although he has acknowledged a consensual relationship with the woman. He vowed to stay in office. The St. Louis prosecutor dropped the charge two weeks ago, after a state judge permitted Greitens' defense team to call the prosecutor to testify about potential misconduct in her investigation.

She also clarified that she had considered the victims involved in the unfolding scandals, including the woman who said Greitens hit and sexually assaulted her, as well as Greitens' wife and two children.
