This is is the kind of company the Trump family keeps. Only in Missouri could a clown like this ever be elected again to any position higher than dog catcher.
Kimberly Guilfoyle announced Monday she is joining disgraced former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens' campaign for the Senate.
The former Fox News host and Donald Trump campaign adviser, 52, announced on Twitter she would become the national chair of Greitens' 2022 campaign.
"I am honored to have Kimberly's support," Greitens said in his own statement. "Her work on behalf of President Donald J. Trump was unmatched."
Greitens was embroiled in controversy before re-emerging for this campaign.
He resigned as Missouri's governor in 2018 amid the fallout from a series of scandals, according to the Associated Press and other outlets. Most seriously, he was accused of trying to blackmail his former hairstylist with nude photos after having an affair with her.
The woman claimed he took a compromising photograph of her while she was blindfolded and threatened to publicize it if she exposed him, as she had claimed in audio secretly recorded by her ex-husband and subsequently leaked to the press. Her allegation ultimately led to a criminal case and felony invasion-of-privacy indictment against Greitens.
Greiten's hairstylist said he took photos of her during the encounter — she recalled seeing a flash through her blindfold — and said they would be used against her if she spoke about what happened. He called her a "little whore," she said.
Greitens and his wife, Sheena, confirmed that he had had an affair before taking office. She filed for divorce last year.
Months later, Greitens was hit with another criminal charge for tampering with a computer following claims that he improperly took a donor list from his nonprofit veterans group to help his political campaign.
