BOOM! Soros Funded Attorney Finally Resigns!
One of the worst attorneys to have ever disgraced this nation, and specifically the state of Missouri has finally resigned. There was not enough Soros money available to keep this corrupt woman in power. Kim Gardner, the Soros-funded St. Louis Circuit Attorney has announced her resignation effective June 1. This comes after months of pressure from Republican leaders, who accused her of negligence, incompetence and politicization of her office.
Gardner was elected in 2016 on a platform of progressive criminal justice reform. She made headlines for charging former Gov. Eric Greitens with invasion of privacy and for pursuing charges against Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the couple who defended their home with guns when rioters broker into their neighborhood.
However, she also faced criticism for her handling of cases, especially homicides. According to Attorney General Andrew Bailey, who filed a lawsuit to remove her from office in February, Gardner failed to prosecute many violent crimes, left victims and their families uninformed, and delayed cases brought by police. He also alleged that she hired unlicensed investigators and falsified public records.
Gardner denied the allegations and claimed that Bailey’s lawsuit was politically and racially motivated. She also blamed the Missouri Legislature for trying to undermine her authority by passing a bill that would allow Gov. Mike Parson to appoint a special prosecutor for violent crimes in St. Louis.
In her resignation letter, Gardner said she could not allow the “outright disenfranchisement” of the people of St. Louis, who elected her twice. She also said she could not let the legislature “effectively shut down” her office and its important work.

Gardner’s resignation has sparked mixed reactions from lawmakers, activists and residents. Some praised her for her courage and commitment to reform, while others welcomed her departure and hoped for a more effective and accountable prosecutor.
Parson said he will immediately begin looking for a replacement who can “help restore faith in the city’s criminal justice system.” Bailey said he wants Gardner to leave immediately and that he will continue his legal quest to remove her from office.
