Complaint accuses Greitens groups of concealing donors

(AP) – An ethics complaint alleges two groups connected to former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens were used to conceal donor identities.

The complaint, filed Tuesday by Republican Rep. Jay Barnes, accused Greitens’ gubernatorial campaign and a nonprofit that promoted Greitens’ agenda of multiple campaign finance violations. Barnes, who chaired the House committee that investigated Greitens, wrote that the nonprofit was specifically formed to skirt new campaign donation limits.

Two Democrats on the committee said in a statement that Greitens should be held accountable for his actions.

Attorney Catherine Hanaway, who represents the nonprofit, did not have immediate comment.

Greitens, a Republican, resigned June 1 amid multiple investigations into his personal and private life.

The Missouri Ethics Commission can levy fines and, in certain cases, refer cases to prosecutors.
