Missouri Governor Eric Greitens posted a second apology on social media shortly after the total number of fellow Republicans calling for his resignation climbed to five Tuesday. The governor’s Facebook page had gone dormant for five days after he followed up his initial statement of regret with two posts from his personal attorney who vigorously denied any wrongdoing. Greitens has acknowledged that he had an affair with a hair stylist in 2015 but rejects allegations he attempted blackmail.
Attorneys representing Greene County Commissioners in Southwest Missouri have been working with the state Ethics Commission in an investigation over whether the commission misused public funds for an election campaign. The county’s Kansas City based law firm is providing the ethics commission with documentation as it pertains to the probe.

School districts across Missouri are closed today because of excessively cold weather. After much of the state received one-to-three inches of snow on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, temperatures began to dive and continued to drop overnight Tuesday morning. Wind chill values reached minus-10, and in some cases, minus-25. The only part of the state spared from the extreme weather has been the far southeastern portion and the Bootheel area.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
