ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Attorney Albert Watkins has been ordered to appear for a deposition on the $100,000 payment to cover the legal costs of the husband of the woman Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens admits having an affair with.
Watkins has said the money was given anonymously. Greitens' attorneys say it could be from a "political operative."

The deposition is Monday.

Meanwhile, Greitens could be facing another charge - this one a misdemeanor.
The Kansas City Star reports that the Missouri Attorney General's office has turned over to the Cole County prosecutor evidence that Greitens knowingly filed false campaign finance disclosure reports to the Missouri Ethics Commission.
