Missouri Lawmakers Will Consider Impeachment During Special Legislative Session
Missouri lawmakers will convene a special legislative session on the evening of May 18 following adjournment of the regular legislative session.
Legislators called the special session to consider impeaching Gov. Eric Greitens. Greitens is refusing to step down despite accusations of sexual and physical abuse and despite felony charges for invasion of privacy and computer data tampering.
The special session is scheduled to last for 30 days. If 82 House members vote to impeach him, the matter goes to the Senate to determine if he will be removed from office.
