Missouri Governor Eric Greitens (R) was charged Friday with felony computer data tampering for his campaign's alleged use of "data, specifically a donor list owned by The Mission Continues," a charity Greitens founded, for "a political fundraiser."

Greitens is already charged with felony invasion of privacy. He is accused of threatening a woman with whom he was having an extramarital affair that he would release an intimate photo of her if she spoke about their relationship.

The governor has refused to resign while his court cases proceed. He denied the new allegations Friday. Bonnie Kristian

Three laptops belonging to workers on Hillary Clinton's campaign were stolen from a car in Philadelphia Friday night, local police report. The MacBook Pros are believed to contain campaign information, perhaps including the candidate's upcoming schedule.

The theft occurred while the staffers were eating dinner in a restaurant. They returned to find a window of their SUV smashed and the computers, along with some other items, stolen from the car seat. The Philly police are working with the Secret Service to investigate the theft, and Police Commissioner Richard Ross said there is "no reason to believe" that "any sensitive information" is at risk.
