If anyone has any information related to this matter, I encourage them to contact my office immediately. Greitens denied claims that he took nude photos of her and threatened to release them publicly if she disclosed the relationship. As part of that report transcripts of a recorded conversation between Greitens' hairdresser and her now ex-husband have been released.
Greitens later addressed the subject of blackmail in a statement sent by his attorney to BuzzFeed News.
A lawyer for the governor, however, told the station that broke the report that it "contained multiple false allegations" and should not need the involvement of law enforcement.
"There was no blackmail and that claim is false".
That bill did not pass, but as governor, Greitens a year ago signed into law a bill that critics said would make it almost impossible for Missourians to win discrimination suits. "The outrageous claims of improper conduct regarding these nearly three-year-ago events are a lie".
Republican leaders in the Missouri Senate and House released statements urging Greitens to be "forthright" and "accountable for his actions".
"The seriousness of this allegation and the implications it will have on the integrity of our state government are deeply disturbing", said the letter, written by state Senator Doug Libla. Missouri AGO spokeswoman Loree Ann Paradise said jurisdiction rests with the prosecuting attorney where the alleged misconduct occurred.
The encounter at the heart of the television report allegedly took place in March 2015. "We could either stick our head in the sand in the legislature or we can move forward". She is among the bipartisan group of senators asking for the attorney general to investigate. "And my objective of contacting the Attorney General is the blackmail part". The FBI is also said to be looking into the case.

How Greitens handles the first serious setback on his possible road to the White House will determine whether he can succeed amid an emerging new standard for how we expect our leaders to behave.

"Bruce Rauner must renounce the support of Missouri Governor Eric Greitens and promise to stop using him in ads", DGA Illinois Communications Director Sam Salustro said in a statement.
The affair was "a deeply personal mistake", the Greitens' statement said.
"Eric took responsibility, and we dealt with this honestly and privately", the statement continued. While we never would have wished for this pain in our marriage, or the pain that this has caused others, with God's mercy Sheena has forgiven and we have emerged stronger.
"And with your help, we will lower taxes for working families and make it easier for businesses to come to Missouri and create jobs". "I want the media and those who wish to peddle gossip to stay away from me and my children", Sheena Greitens said in a separate message. "The current standard requires only that dismissed workers prove that bias merely was a contributing factor". "As we learned today, these false allegations are being advanced by political adversaries". Greitens also claims the photograph does not exist, and denies the quote attributed to him on the recording. "But let's be clear - violence and threats against women are never acceptable". Anything reported otherwise is untrue and we will explore pursuing all legal action.
Though Greitens has had his moments of success as governor, like signing a right-to-work law early a year ago, he was fined $1,000 after admitting to the Missouri Ethics Commission that he had violated campaign finance law, according to the Kansas City Star.
