|The regular session of the Missouri legislature adjourned on May 18 amidst controversy. While prosecutors dropped invasion-of-privacy charges against Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, the House begun its special legislative session where they will consider whether to impeach the Governor over alleged actions during an extramarital affair.
