A press release today from State Auditor (D) Nicole Galloway:
Statement from State Auditor Nicole Galloway on legal bills submitted for Greitens’ legal defense
June 9, 2018
Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway today released the following statement on the legal bills of Eric Greitens. Recent reports indicate the state has been billed more than $150,000 for representation for the former governor during the special session to consider disciplinary action:
“Though there is a new administration, it does not change my responsibility to protect taxpayers. I have ongoing concerns about using taxpayer dollars to pay the ex-governor’s private attorneys, and I’m going to continue to work to get answers.”
Auditor Galloway first questioned using taxpayer dollars for the payment of private attorneys representing the former governor in May…
$150,000.00, eh? He got away cheaply and the state is holding the bag.
