The Era of Revenge Porn


Have an ex that screwed you over?  We live in a day and age where revenge porn is a real thing.  This means that you took pictures of an ex and posted them either on the internet or sent them to other people, probably their friends and family to get back at them.

And the Governor of Missouri has been indicted for sharing nude photos of his former mistress.  For the record, he is a conservative who ran on a platform of family values.  The Missouri senate and house has asked him to resign multiple times in the last few weeks since the city of St. Louis indicted him on felony charges of sharing nude photos of his former mistress without her consent.  He has refused.

Today, I got notification that Governor Eric Greitens has set up a GoFundMe for his legal fees to fight the felony charges.  Except he held a press conference admitting the woman was his former mistress and admitting that he may not have used the best judgement when she threatened to go public with the affair.  So it’s hard to believe he might be innocent…

In this case, it appears that the Governor sent the nude photos to the mistress’s ex-husband as well as some of the governor’s cronies.  If convicted he could serve prison time.  Hard to run the government from behind bars in my opinion.  This is the problem with our country.  We keep electing public officials who can’t do the job.  Greitens was already not my favorite official.  Not once during his campaign for office did he mention he was pro-right to work.  Once he was in office, he decided to not let the people of Missouri vote on the issue again.  He just wrote it into law… meaning Missouri is now a right to work state.  However, in the last ten years, Missourians have voted on Right to Work three different times and every time, we have won against Right to Work.  Right to work drops the prevailing wage for skilled laborers such as drywallers, concrete finishers, and plumbers.

Greitens also decided to become a union buster, attempting to write legislation that would remove unions from the State of Missouri.  All unions, even teacher unions have come under fire from Greitens.  He has alienated even those that voted for him.  Several of my friends that voted for Greitens have changed their minds and decided he might be the devil.

Being involved in a scandal that includes revenge porn is not helping his reputation.  Nor is it helping his “Working for the Families of Missouri” image.  Quite the opposite.  Now he has asked the people of Missouri who already pay his salary to help with his legal fees because he can’t keep it in his pants or make good decisions.

This case will be interesting to watch unfold as the mistress claims she did not consent to have the pictures taken.  If that’s true and in this day and age it very well could be.  I know everyone disagrees on whether she consented or not because they say it would be obvious that he was taking a picture of her, but I know it is actually fairly simple to sneak a picture in this day and age, just fake a text message or phone call since our phones are the thing we are most likely to take pictures with.  As long as the flash doesn’t go off and the sound is turned off, then you can do it without the other person knowing it has even happened.

We shall see what happens as the trial unfolds…

  1. Thank you for putting your book on Bookbub, I ended up buying all 12 books in that series and only found this blog because I wanted to know when no.13 was coming out. My daughter caught me reading one of your books and has now also bought then and reading them after I started rattling off some facts about medieval torture methods. I have no idea how you keep on keeping with your CRPS (or should it be called CRAPS). I know if I am in pain of any sort for more than three days I start thinking of hoarding my medicines and taking them all at once. Please note that this is not an option for you as WE, your readers, need to know what happens to Aislinn and the team. LOL and keep smiling.

    1. Thank you! I’m glad you loved them. I am working on Demonic Dreams now and hoping to make some serious progress in the upcoming weeks…. enough that I can put a firm release date down for it. I’m still hoping middle of spring for it.
