Review finds violations by ex-Missouri governor's campaign

An ethics investigation found “probable cause” Thursday that disgraced former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens' campaign broke the law by not reporting that it cooperated with a political action committee during his successful 2016 bid for the state's top office. In its findings, the Missouri Ethics Commission wrote that it didn't find any evidence that Greitens personally knew about the campaign finance issues. “However, candidates are ultimately responsible for all reporting requirements,” the commission said.
