ST. LOUIS - One by one, potential jurors were questioned by St. Louis prosecutors and attorneys for Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.
The process is part of finding a jury who will hear the invasion of privacy case stemming from an affair the governor acknowledged. Greitens has denied any criminal wrongdoing and his attorneys have suggested the prosecution is a political witchhunt.
Some jurors questioned admitted they would have a difficult time being objective. Several potential jurors said they opposed the governor’s positions regarding organized labor.
One potential juror was questioned about whether she told co-workers she would “fry” the governor if she were to serve on the jury. She denied having said that.
