As readers of this blog may recall, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens seized control of the state board of education by replacing five of its eight members with his choices. None has been confirmed by the State Senate, which leaves the state board without a quorum. How this unconfirmed board managed to fire the State Commissioner remains a mystery.

But Greitens is now in deep trouble because of news that a woman accused him of having an extramarital affair with her, tying her up, taking photos, and threatening to post the pictures on the Internet if she broke the story. Rather bizarre since exposure threatened Greitens more than his paramour.

Greitens has touted his role as a family man. 

Missouri is a very conservative state. Republicans will have to decide what to do about the Governor.
