Missourians need to know that Attorney General Josh Hawley promised to clean up corruption in Jefferson City — but has instead enabled that very corruption, conducting a sham investigation into Governor Greitens’ use of an app that deletes text messages as soon as they are read to protect the Governor — who donated $50,000 to Hawley’s Attorney General campaign.
- The Kansas City Star said Missourians “can’t trust” Hawley’s investigation, calling it “sub
standard” and “a disservice to all Missourians.”
- The St. Louis Post-Dispatch wrote that the investigation “has been widely mocked because Hawley’s investigator didn’t interview Greitens and took his staffers at their word that they hadn’t misused the app.”
- KMBC reported that “Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley is getting criticized for how he handled an investigation into the governor.”
- And six former Missouri state attorneys, including a former MO Supreme Court judge, called Hawley’s investigation “halfhearted” and “unbelievable,” writing “we are left to wonder if Hawley is protecting the governor or is simply incompetent.”
