MADSON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says embattled Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens should step down if allegations he blackmailed a woman are accurate.

Greitens is scheduled to stand trial next month on a felony invasion-of-privacy charge related to the woman's claim that he took a photo of her partially nude body and threatened to make it public if she disclosed their relationship. The woman has said Greitens slapped, shoved and threatened her during sexual encounters in 2015.

Greitens has repeatedly denied being violent and says the affair was consensual. Legislators are weighing whether to impeach him.

Walker campaigned for Greitens in 2016. Walker told reporters Monday that he doesn't know how someone can continue serving as governor if the allegations are true, saying it would be difficult if not impossible to govern.
