Gov. Eric Greitens (R-MO) resigned his position Tuesday afternoon in an announcement to the press outside his office. The Republican governor, embroiled in a number of scandals, said he would resign at the end of this week.

“Today, I am announcing that I will resign as governor of Missouri effective Friday, June 1 at 5:00 PM,” he told gathered reporters.

The governor remained defiant despite the resignation, criticizing the investigation into his behavior.

“This ordeal has been designed to cause an incredible amount of strain on my family,” Greitens said, claiming someone “designed” the scandals to “cause maximum damage.”

One woman accused Greitens of sexual misconduct, and state prosecutors have been investigating possible misuse of the governor’s donor list.
