Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens' resignation went into effect Friday night. On his last day in office, he signed 77 new laws

One of those laws makes it illegal to threaten to share sexual photos of someone without their consent — something Greitens has been accused of doing.

In February, Greitens was indicted on felony invasion of privacy charges after he was accused of taking an explicit photo of a woman he allegedly had an affair with. 

She said he threatened to release the photo if she ever talked about the affair publicly. The charge was later dropped but could still be refiled.

Greitens' replacement, former Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, took the oath of office Friday.
