Yikes.

Republican Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has decided to step down from office after a sexual misconduct scandal erupted earlier this week. This isn’t the only bad news for Greitens either.

As it turns out, he’s also being accused of misusing a charity donor list.

Originally, Greitens had stated that, despite the allegations he was facing, he would not resign from office, a statement he has since recanted. The governor was potentially facing impeachment.

The 44-year-old lawmaker has been accused of taking and transmitting a non-consensual — partially nude — photo of a woman with whom he was having an affair.

A felony invasion-of-privacy charge levied against him by the state has been dropped however the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office said it still plans to pursue the case, either through a special prosecutor or an appointed assistant.

Greitens likely would be replaced by Missouri Lieutenant Gov. Mike Parson.

“This ordeal has been designed to cause an incredible amount of strain on my family. Millions of dollars of mounting legal bills, endless personal attacks designed to cause maximum damage to family and friends,” Greitens said. “Legal harassment of colleagues, friends and campaign workers, and it’s clear that for the forces that oppose us, there is no end in sight.”

He continued, “I cannot allow those forces to continue to cause pain and difficulty to the people that I love.”

This is why it’s so critical for anyone who is considering running for office to be a person of integrity and upstanding moral character. First off, that’s the mark of a good leader. Secondly because you represent an ideological system, a way of thinking, and if that way of thinking happens to be true, it’s going to be harder to persuade people of that reality when they see someone living an immoral lifestyle.

Character most definitely matters, despite what you might hear on the political landscape these days.

WATCH: College Students Not Cheering for Team USA in Olympics Because America is Evil

A recent video of students at the University of South Florida found that many of them aren’t rooting for Team USA at the Olympics simply because they hate America. This is what our schools are teaching our kids to think, folks. From the lowest to the highest grades, our system of miseducation is teaching kids that America is evil and not worth supporting. Some of these woke, anti-American students spoke to Campus Reform ahead of the opening ceremony of the Wokeyo Olympics. And they said they won’t be watching because America isn’t worth rooting for. These privileged, hate-filled leftists said that they aren’t rooting for America: “I’m not going to be rooting for any team just because it’s some country that I live in…because the truth is, patriotism shouldn’t be that strong,” one student said. Another student said, “if you would’ve asked me in the last administration, maybe not.” Students also told Jacobson that they believed athletes should be able to protest during the Olympic Games and that U.S. athletes have no duty to represent the country in a positive light. One student said, “they have a duty to represent their country athletically, but they don’t have any obligation to represent it good or bad.” “I’m not proud to live in a country where I can’t even go down in my own neighborhood [without seeing] people putting up their Blue Lives Matter flags telling me that my life doesn’t matter,” another student said. “Given what’s been going on with this country and how divided our politics have been, there’s not really a reason to stand for one within the country, anyways,” a student exclaimed.

Wokesters Now Say You are a Racist if You Fear Pit Bull Dogs

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog. The leftist activists at the Animal Farm Foundation recently declared that you are a racist if you fear pit bulls because the pit bull is “the black man’s dog” since it is popular with blacks. The non-profit claims that it is “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for pit bull dogs and their owners,” and aims to fight against “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.” In other words, the group wants to smooth the way for pit bulls and their owners. The group also relies heavily on a “study” by Harvard Law School’s Ann Linder who wrote a paper titled “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation.” Linder says that the pit bull has been “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.” However, the pit bull has a bad reputation because it is a dangerous animal. Campus Reform pointed out that pit bulls represent about 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, yet the breed was responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. Oh, but it’s all about racism, you see. You don’t fear pit bulls because the breed is powerful and dangerous. No, you fear pit bulls because you are a racist. The left is never happy unless it is re-fashion reality to its fantasy world. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
