Missouri’s General Assembly has voted to hold, for the first time in state history, a special session — to decide possible impeachment for Gov. Eric Greitens.
Lawmakers announced late Thursday they had 138 House and 29 Senate signatures, more than enough to exceed the amount needed to call the session.
The special session, which would begin May 18 after the legislature adjourns its regular session for the year, would mark the first time in Missouri history that lawmakers called for the special session instead of the governor.
Greitens faces felony charges — accused of blackmailing a woman for sex and computer tampering, for misusing a veterans charity’s donor list.
