Eric Greitens is running for the US Senate in Missouri despite his past as an accused sexual predator. Greitens is running for the Senate seat that was left open by the retirement of Sen. Roy Blount.

“A one-time golden boy of statewide politics—Navy SEAL, Rhodes Scholar, White House Fellow—Greitens resigned the governorship in 2018 after an affair with his hairdresser, accusations of physical abuse, an indictment for privacy invasion (followed by dismissal of the charges), a damning legislative investigation, and the beginning of impeachment proceedings. The states GOP establishment, including Blunt and the Show Me states other senator, Republican Josh Hawley, shunned the former Democrat,” the Washington Monthly reports.

Greitens appears to believe that, after Donald Trump’s successful nomination as the party’s presidential nominee, he has a shot.

Trump was credibly accused of sexual assault and harassment by multiple women but still retains the support of most Republicans.
