Missouri correct in not paying for Greitens’ legal mess



June 20, 2018 - 11:00 PM

The state’s Office of Administration made the right call in declining to pay legal bills racked up by former Gov. Eric Greitens. Missouri taxpayers should not be on the hook for the bills.

A pair of lawyers whom Greitens hired to defend him in the legal troubles that led to his resignation have billed the state more than $153,400.

Rep. Jay Barnes, the Jefferson City Republican who chaired a special House committee that investigated Greitens, recommended the state reject the invoices.
