How reprehensible does a prosecutor have to be for a grand jury to write a letter demanding action?
Members of a grand jury that indicted an investigator in the criminal case against former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens urged a state disciplinary board to take stronger action against St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, calling her conduct “reprehensible.”
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Thursday reported that grand jury members last month sent a letter detailing their concerns to St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison, and asked him to forward it to the Missouri Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel. The agency is responsible for investigating allegations of misconduct by lawyers.
The letter was signed by seven members of a grand jury that indicted investigator William Tisaby on multiple counts of perjury and evidence tampering related to the 2018 invasion of privacy case against Greitens. Tisaby pleaded guilty in March to a misdemeanor and was placed on probation.
The same grand jury declined to indict Gardner, but the letter offered scathing criticism.
“What we observed was not inadvertent nor inconsequential but was calculated deceit and/or outright incompetence; neither of which is acceptable behavior for a person holding this public office,” the letter stated.
The Soros DA is really the gift that keeps on giving. Let’s recap some of that.
Among the allegations:
Gardner’s Concealment and misrepresentations” during her 2018 investigation into former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.
The filing list “more than 50 rule violations” including alleged “false statements & failure to disclose evidence” on multiple occasions in March and April of 2018.
The allegations say Gardner also misrepresented and concealed facts from her own colleagues.
In her response to the court action, her counsel wrote that Gardner had recently won re-election with “an overwhelming majority (74%) of the voters…This information is another attempt by Ms. Gardner’s political enemies – largely from outside St. Louis – to remove Ms. Gardner and thwart the systemic reforms she champions.”
When you see leftists in law school push cancel culture, what do you expect them to do when they’re given prosecutorial powers? These people have no concept of objectivity. Following the law for its own sake is a foreign concept to them. Soros DAs, in particular, are the worst sorts of radical hacks, possessing limited abilities, while understanding that they have to be extremists in order to get funding from Soros and his political allies, so they can climb to the top.
