(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) Prior to serving as the U.S. Attorney General during the Bush administration, John Ashcroft served as the governor of Missouri from 1985 to 1993 and while he was out campaigning for commissioner Harry Roberts Thursday.

He had a few things to say about the controversy surrounding current Governor Eric Greitens who has been indicted for felony charges of invasion of privacy.

"I don't think it's a party issue, I think it's a personal issue to the governor," Ashcroft said. "I'm pleased to see the various aspects of resolution underway and I hope they'll provide a basis for the right decisions to be made, but they are gathering facts."

Greitens is currently under investigation for the alleged blackmail of his former mistress and is scheduled to appear in May.
