A video on Eric Greitens (r) recent phone conversation meltdown with John Brunner (r) – from the Missouri Democratic Party:

[Republicans said Eric Greitens was not a true conservative.]

[This is what happened nest.] [ring]

[Greitens phone call to GOP candidate John Brunner. Nov. 14, 2015]

Eric Greitens (r): Oh, John. Oh, John. Where, where you, where can we meet tomorrow, John?

[….]

Name the place, John. [John Brunner: “Seven a.m. on Monday.”] Name the place, John, tomorrow.

Eric Greitens (r): Oh, Jesus, you’re such a coward, John. [John Brunner: “…Monday.”] I think you’re a coward, that’s what I said. [John Brunner: “Oh, well, that’s…”] I said you’re a coward.

[John Brunner: “…demanding I adapt to you…”] Eric Greitens (r): Oh, John Brunner. Oh my God, you are such a weasel. [….] Are you gonna meet tomorrow or not? Tell me where you’re gonna be? [John Brunner: “Eric…”] Where are you gonna be tomorrow? [John Brunner: “Eric, listen my friend, Eric…”] I’m asking you a question, John. Are you afraid to meet tomorrow?

Does anyone ever get a “pass” in Missouri politics when they open their mouth? With the easily available technology every candidate should expect that there will be a record of what they’ve said every time they speak.
