Missouri Declines To Pay Attorneys Representing Greitens

Updated:

Missouri Auditor Nicole Galloway says she's glad the state has declined to pay private attorneys who represented former Governor Eric Greitens' office against potential impeachment proceedings.
    Galloway had raised concerns about Greitens' attempt to use taxpayer funds for the attorneys.
    Office of Administration Commissioner Sarah Steelman said Thursday that it appears the primary beneficiary of their work was Greitens individually and that the attorneys weren't needed for the governor's office itself.    
    Steelman originally said the invoices totaled over $180,000. But her office said Friday that the total actually was $153,000.    
    Greitens resigned June 1 while facing potential impeachment proceedings over allegations of sexual and political misconduct.
    Steelman had been appointed administration commissioner by Greitens.
