The Missouri Attorney General’s Office has released a detailed report on former prosecutor, backed by George Soros that accused her of malfeasance and nonfeasance in office. The report needed 62 pages o cover all of Gardner’s corrupt acts. She dropped over 25,000 charges against criminals, had another 2,735 cases were dismissed because their cases were never prosecuted, misuse of taxpayer money, vi9lations of the Criminal Rights Act, and resignation due to legal pressure.
Key Findings of the Report:
- Dismissal of 25,000 Cases: The report highlights that under Gardner’s tenure, an astonishing 25,000 cases were dismissed, raising serious concerns about the administration of justice in St. Louis.
- Failure to Prosecute 2,735 Cases: Judges dismissed 2,735 cases due to Gardner’s office’s failure to prosecute, indicating a systemic breakdown in the city’s legal processes.
- Misuse of Taxpayer Money: The report uncovers that Gardner’s office paid $351,500 to an unlicensed attorney for legal advice, a blatant misuse of taxpayer funds.
- Violations of the Crime Victims’ Rights Act: Gardner’s administration is accused of countless violations of the Crime Victims’ Rights Act, compromising the rights and welfare of victims in criminal cases.
- Resignation Amidst Legal Pressure: Gardner resigned just hours before a judge was expected to order the turnover of potentially damaging records and schedule a deposition, a move seen as an attempt to evade accountability.
Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey wrote:
“Kim Gardner hit the eject button and resigned as Circuit Attorney when it became clear that our lawsuit to remove her from office was going to be successful.”
“My office has published the Gardner Report to ensure no one person will ever take our state hostage again.”
“The Gardner Report puts into the public domain what went wrong, how it happened, and what systems need to be put in place to prevent this from happening in the future.”
Funded by George Soros, Gardner won her election for prosecutor in 2016 and reelected in 2020.
Under Gardner’s watch, the Circuit Attorney’s Office, once the most active in Missouri in terms of jury trials, saw a dramatic decrease in the prosecution of criminal cases. This decline led to a state of near-collapse in the city’s criminal justice system.
Kim Gardner is so intolerable that two dozen attorneys and more than one-third of the trial lawyers left the office when she took over the office in 2017. And this is a Democrat-dominated office!
The report is the culmination of an extensive investigation involving the review of tens of thousands of documents and interviews with nearly 40 witnesses. This thorough process aimed to uncover the full extent of the issues within Gardner’s administration.
Attorney General Bailey is still seeking thousands of pages of records from the city, which Gardner refused to turn over as part of subpoenas. The future of Gardner’s legal licensure remains uncertain, with Bailey stating, “I think that that’s going be up to the judiciary to decide whether her licensure is at risk.”
Here is more background on Kim Gardner:
Kim Gardner refused to put the man charged with hitting high shool student and volleyball player Janae Edmondson back in jail even though he violated the conditions of his bond more than 50 times. The repeat offender went on to hit a Tennessee teenage volleyball player walking in St. Louis City last week — and the young girl lost her legs after she was pinned to another vehicle. The driver NEVER should have been on the street. And Missourians are furious!
The Circuit Attorney’s office refused to file charges against the woman who opened fire on the Cinco de Mayo crowd, citing ‘lack of evidence’ and the ‘victim refuses to assist’.
Judge John Torbitzky ruled that Soros-funded Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner will be tried for willfully neglecting her duties.
The Soros-funded Circuit Attorney refuses to perform the duties of her position. The homicide rate and car thefts in St. Louis rival the numbers from any major city in a third-world country. Gardner refuses to prosecute criminals and releases dangerous criminals on the street. And at the same time, she throws out court cases because she says the police are racist.
The final straw was a horrific crime in February when repeat offender, 21-year-old Daniel Riley, who had been out on bail after violating his bond multiple times, struck teenager Janae Edmondson in a wreck. The young teen volleyball sensation lost both of her legs as she was walking from a volleyball tournament with her parents in downtown St. Louis. Janee had a scholarship to play volleyball in college. Daniel Riley had violated his bond over 100 times and yet was still roaming the streets of St. Louis.
In August 2018, Kim Gardner announced her attorneys will no longer accept cases from 28 different St. Louis City police officers. Gardner called it her “exclusion list” because they were racist.
