Missouri lawmakers on Thursday announced they’re calling a special session to order to discuss the possible impeachment of Gov. Eric Greitens.
The session, to be held at 6:30 p.m. on May 18, will explore the allegations of sexual misconduct and misuse of charity resources against the Republican governor.
The move will mark the first time in state history that lawmakers have called a special session, which are typically called by governors.
