The Democratic Governors Association (DGA) called on Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (R) to resign on Thursday in the wake of his indictment on charges of felony privacy invasion.
“The charges against Eric Greitens are deeply disturbing and prove he is unfit to hold public office,” DGA Executive Director Elisabeth Pearson said in a statement.
“Following today’s indictment, Governor Greitens should step down immediately. The people of Missouri deserve a governor who can focus full-time on the issues affecting the state,” the statement continued.
Democrats also called on the Republican Governors Association (RGA) to “send a clear message that it does not condone” Greiten’s alleged actions and remove him from its executive committee.
The Hill has reached out to the RGA for comment.
