ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Republican candidate for Missouri governor Eric Greitens is deflecting a call by his Democratic opponent Chris Koster to release his tax returns before any future debates can take place.
“Sheena and I have filled out all of the personal financial disclosures, which demonstrate we have no conflict of interest. We do the same thing that every candidate for office in Missouri has done,” Greitens told reporters at a campaign stop, Saturday, in Des Peres.
Greitens added he feels Koster is afraid to debate and will come up with any excuse to avoid a showdown.
Later in the day, Saturday, Koster’s campaign office sent KMOX this statement from spokesman David Turner, “The folks attending Eric Greitens’ events today heard a lot of hot air, but not a lot of substance. Instead, he reverted to his baseless attacks to cover up for his lack of knowledge about the issues, and his lack of transparency with Missouri voters. His campaign says he has nothing to hide, so why does he continue to hide his tax returns? It’s time he levels with Missourians.”
