The following observations only juxtapose the MO (former) Governor Eric Greitens debacle with the Missouri race for the U.S. Senate. More than enough has already been disclosed about the governor’s illicit tryst and the surrounding negligence and loss of integrity. But these issues do play a role in the current senatorial election. Greitens’ unfortunate demise is the result of his own arrogance.

MO Attorney General Josh Hawley is also a candidate for the U.S. Senate race. Regarding his role in the Greitens investigation, it is the MO attorney general’s responsibility to investigate any credible allegations such as falls under his constitutional purview. I think Josh Hawley was, and is, simply doing his job–not for political gain or expediency.

Who assigned blame to whom? Governor Greitens openly blamed the Democrats for the attacks against him. Democrats blamed the Republicans. Greitens supporters (mostly independents/libertarians) blamed Hawley. (These independent/libertarians are the ones supporting Austin Petersen in the Republican Senate primary.) Petersen is a secularist libertarian masquerading in Republican conservative clothing. He has exercised very poor judgment and rhetoric in blaming Hawley for all these troubles in MO. Tony Monetti, another candidate, followed Petersen right down this path of castigating Hawley with the notion that the Greitens investigation was a conflict of interest alongside a U.S. Senate campaign.  Both opponents have continually pelted Hawley with numerous allegations of RINOism, aspiration, elitism, cowardice, and other swamp-like tactics.   These are fatal, ad hominum mistakes and will not win them the nomination.

To date, I have not heard a negative word from Hawley regarding his primary opponents. He has taken the high road by taking the fight solely to his Democratic opponent. Josh Hawley has navigated this MO mine field with precision, (as has his Democratic rival). His primary opponents, though, articulate as they are, are being blown to smithereens. Their bravado will be their undoing.

Pride goes before a fall…always has, always will. (See Proverbs 16:18)
