Here's the funny part since NEW allegations against him came out recently...



"The disgraced former governor resigned from office mid-term in 2018 following allegations that he sexually assaulted a woman and as part of an agreement with prosecutors to drop a separate computer tampering charge.

“This is a flashpoint. Now we’re talking about domestic violence,” said James Harris, a Republican political strategist in Missouri, referencing the allegations against Greitens. “Now we’re talking about abuse. That’s a different thing. We’re not talking about an affair now.”


So the affair and the computer tampering weren't enough to kick him to the curb (and they instead backed him). I'd say they probably just feel like he's now a weak candidate.

Too bad in a way. A Greitens win in the primary would give the Dems a shot in a State that solidly Republican.

i think that's why they're gonna pull their support. not because of affairs and computer tampering and abuse. but because he is now weak politically.

Nothing screams the Party of Family Values like sexual assault.
