House hires former chief justice for Greitens investigation

Posted online

The Missouri House of Representative hired a former state Supreme Court chief justice for its investigation into Gov. Eric Greitens.

Edward "Chip" Robertson will work as special counsel for the Special Investigative Committee on Oversight created by the House in February for the investigation.

Robertson served on the court in 1994, when Secretary of State Judith Moriarty was impeached by the House and removed by the state Supreme Court.

The investigation is ongoing into allegations that Greitens blackmailed a woman he had an extramarital affair with in 2015.
