No legal action against college, charity tied to Greitens

December 28, 2018

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri attorney general’s office is not pursuing legal action against two groups related to concerns that former Gov. Eric Greitens’ used their resources for political gain.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the attorney general’s office on Friday notified The Mission Continues charity and Washington University that their cases will be closed.

Attorney General Josh Hawley this year launched an investigation related to a donor list that Greitens’ obtained from The Mission Continues in possible violation of laws that forbid charity insiders from benefiting from charity resources.

Hawley’s office also investigated whether Washington University violated the Merchandising Practices Act. That review was related to questions of whether Greitens used grant funds to bolster his political career.

Greitens resigned in personal and political scandal in June.
