Yesterday, the investigation was extended until May 18, but State Representative Jay Barnes, who chairs the House Special Investigative Committee on Oversight, said a report would be released this week. He stands accused of taking a compromising photograph of a woman without her consent, then making it accessible by computer in order to prevent her from disclosing their sexual relationship.

Greitens acknowledged in January that he had an extramarital affair in 2015 as he was preparing to run for governor.
