Process For Choosing New Missouri Lieutenant Governor Is Unclear

Updated:

    Missouri Governor Eric Greitens' resignation will take effect at 5:00 pm today and will reopen a longstanding legal debate over how the state should go about filling a vacancy in its lieutenant governor post. 
    The state constitution is clear on a governor's succession, and Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson is set to take the oath of office this evening. 
    There is no such clarity for the soon-to-be-vacant office of lieutenant governor. 
    Some Missouri governors have claimed the right to appoint a replacement rather than keep the office vacant.
