Denny Hoskins

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens is lashing out against two Republican senators who didn't vote against a pay raise for themselves and other elected officials.

Greitens in a Tuesday Facebook post accused Sens. Denny Hoskins and Paul Wieland of betraying their constituents.

At issue was a proposed pay increase for legislators and statewide elected officials. Senators voted 25-2 against it Monday. Only Hoskins and Wieland cast votes to allow the raise to take effect, but six other senators recused themselves and didn't vote.

The Missouri House on Tuesday passed the same ethics reform bill passed two months ago by the Senate, but not before making a few changes.
