In her testimony, she admitted she never saw a camera or phone.
Earlier this year, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens received an indictment on felony invasion of privacy after the woman he had an affair with accused him of blackmailing her, including snapping partially nude pictures of her.
Now she admits that she doesn’t know for sure if he took pictures of her.
From The Washington Examiner:
In a copy of the seven-page motion, obtained by the Washington Examiner, Greitens’ mistress said she might have imagined the governor’s actions in a “dream.” Greitens had not yet been elected governor at the time of their sexual affair. In the motion, his former mistress is referred to as “K.S.”
“Apparently recognizing the difficulty this testimony presented for the charges, the Assistant Circuit Attorney later asked K.S. ‘did you see what you believed to be a phone?’ K.S. answered: ‘… I haven’t talked about it because I don’t know if it’s because I’m remembering it through a dream or I — I’m not sure, but yes, I feel like I saw it after that happened, but I haven’t spoken about it because of that,” the motion said. “She later re-confirmed, however, that she could not testify under oath that she saw a phone.”
The motion from Greitens’ lawyers said prosecutors withheld that evidence, and demanded that prosecutors bring forward other exculpatory evidence they might have.

The court filing by Greitens’ attorneys said the woman participated in a lengthy deposition Friday. After acknowledging she hadn’t seen a camera or phone, she was asked if she saw what she believed to be a phone.
“I haven’t talked about it because I don’t know if it’s because I’m remembering it through a dream or I — I’m not sure, but yes, I feel like I saw it after that happened,” she responded, according to the court filing.
Greitens admitted the affair that started as he prepared his fun for governor. St. Louis station KMOV had a report about a conversation between Greitens and the woman that took place on March 21, 2015, and he husbanded recorded it. From The News Tribune:
In that recorded conversation, the woman said Greitens invited her into the basement of his St. Louis home, where he tied her hands to some exercise rings, blindfolded her and partially undid her clothing. She said she saw a flash through the blindfold and Greitens said to her, “You’re never going to mention my name, otherwise there will be pictures of me everywhere.” The woman said Greitens told her later in the day that he had erased the photo.
Greitens has denied blackmailing the woman but has not directly answered questions about whether he took a photo.
Prosecutors have said they do not have the photo, but have tried to retrieved it. The woman admitted that she sent partially nude pictures of herself to him in June 2015 and continued to see him after that March encounter.
Her attorneys have claimed that Greitens has allowed his attorneys “attack” the woman by “mischaracterizing her deposition testimony.”
