(JEFFERSON CITY) Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley announced Tuesday that his office has found evidence of possible wrongdoing by Gov. Eric Greitens regarding a charity he founded.


Greitens started The Mission Continues before he ran for governor.

Hawley said his team uncovered evidence that Greitens used a list of donors from The Mission Continues for political fundraising.

Hawley said that goes beyond Missouri's charity laws. The attorney general's office has shared the evidence it uncovered with the city of St. Louis Circuit Attorney because the possible wrongdoing happened in that jurisdiction, and it would be up to the St. Louis prosecutor to decide whether to charge Greitens with a crime.

Greitens already faces a felony invasion-of-privacy charge in St. Louis for allegedly taking and transmitting a nonconsensual photo of a partially nude woman with whom Greitens said he had an affair.

Greitens released the following statement: "Fortunately for Josh, he's better at press conferences than the law. Anyone who has set foot in a Missouri courtroom knows these allegations are ridiculous. Josh has turned the "evidence" he claims to have over to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner- a liberal prosecutor funded by George Soros who allegedly suborned perjury, falsified documents, and withheld evidence. We will dispense with these false allegations."
