Gov. Eric Greitens of Missouri Resigns
Departing Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens should do the state a final favor by putting his official pen away until the end of his term.
Greitens said he’ll resign as of 5 p.m. Friday. A formal letter of resignation wasn’t available at midday Wednesday, but Missourians should take Greitens at his word. He’s leaving.
As it turns out, though, he could still have a major impact on state policy.
Lawmakers passed dozens of bills in the final days of this year’s session, including the budget, tax cuts, changes to prevailing wage payments and changes to the merit system for state workers.
