The St Louis Contrarian

Providing Independent and Intelligent Insight on St. Louis Public Policy Issues

Greitens and Kim Gardner

Most of you must now know that Kim Gardner the Circuit Attorney in St. Louis has dropped the charges against Governor Greitens. Anyone following the case knew the charges were flimsy and may fall into the category of Prosecutorial Misconduct.

I don’t know Gardner’s head, but it seemed she wanted to make a big political name for herself by prosecuting the governor. She was clearly in over her head. Ironically, this may give Greitens impetus to gather new popularity and resist impeachment.

More important, I am concerned about how this bodes for the criminal justice system in St. Louis. Is this kind of misconduct common but hidden from the public? A large number of attorneys have left the employ of Ms. Gardner which indicates there is trouble in River City. Written by Paul Dribin
