HAZELWOOD, MO (KTVI) - Eric Greitens, one of the four Republicans running for Missouri Governor, has issued an 'ISIS Hunting Permit' as part of his campaign. Greitens' campaign started selling bumper stickers with the words "ISIS HUNTING PERMIT 2016" on Tuesday. The sticker says it expires when "we defeat this evil."
The mock hunting permits are being sold for a $10 donation. For $100, donors can get stickers signed by a former Navy SEAL who claims he killed Osama bin Laden.
Greitens, a former Navy SEAL officer, tells Fox2 they've been a hit with supporters.
"All of these people who are out there, they want to join our mission," said Greitens. "They want to become part of the team- part of the campaign- and we thought this would be a fun way to let people know about my biography and that we all need to stand together against terrorism," Greitens added.
While the stickers have no legal authority, one group finds them inappropriate.
