Columbia, Mo. (AP) -- The Associated Press has joined The Kansas City Star's motion to get a sealed court record from former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens’ child custody case.

The Star and the AP argue that a decision to make the record off-limits to the public to protect the former Republican governor's two young sons goes too far and denies voters important information about a recent candidate for public office.
