A hairdresser testified to a Missouri House special investigative committee that her affair with Gov. Eric Greitens was not always consensual, according to the committee’s report released Wednesdaygov-eric-greitens-1

The woman, who remains anonymous, accused the Republican governor of inviting her to his home while his wife was out of town in March 2015. When she arrived, she told the committee, he searched her personal belongings, patted her down and checked to see if anyone saw her entering the home before having her change into men’s clothes. She testified that he told her he would teach her how to do a proper pull-up.

 

“And then he said, ‘First, before we start a workout, you have to be hydrated’ and puts water in his mouth and tries to spit it in my mouth, at which point I realized he’s trying to kiss me, but I don’t even want to kiss him,” the woman’s testimony states. “So I just spit it out. He does it and he’s like, ‘You’re not going to be a bad girl, are you?’”

Greitens’ accuser gave a graphic account of the interaction, saying the governor tied her hands to pull-up rings and blindfolded her before taking off her clothes without her consent, according to the committee report.

At this point, the woman claimed, she heard the sound of a cellphone and saw “a flash through the blindfold.” This led her to believe Greitens took a nude photograph of her, a detail that has been a point of contention in the allegations.

 

Greitens was indicted in February on charges of first-degree felony invasion of privacy over the photographs and is set to stand trial in May.

 

Greitens’ accuser said that the photographs were used to blackmail her into silence. She told the committee that the governor told her not to mention his name or he would “take these pictures, and I’m going to put them everywhere I can.”

The woman testified to the House committee that she asked to be let down from her bindings and tried to leave when Greitens then took her into a “bear hug.” Greitens then took off his pants and coerced her into having oral sex, she told the committee.

 

“I felt as though that would allow me to leave,” the woman’s testimony reads.

 

She also testified that she met with the governor again in May, when she had consensual oral sex with Greitens. When she met with him in June, the woman alleged, Greitens slapped her upon learning she had sex with her estranged husband.

 

The slap did not leave a mark but “was just jarring. It wasn’t sweet and gentle; it was forceful,” the report states.

 

Greitens and the woman allegedly ended the affair in October 2015, and she never saw him again, she testified.
