In recent elections, far-left donor George Soros helped get radical district attorneys elected in many big cities.
These DAs are not so much interested in prosecuting criminals, but in turning our cities into crime-infested wastelands.
But it looks like one of them is getting her just desserts.
The blue city of San Francisco recalled their Soros-backed DA, but that appears to be just the beginning.
Another big city was being hammered by a leftist that was putting criminals ahead of justice. Immediately afterward, Republicans turned the tables on this questionable prosecutor — and now, she is facing the music.
From Daily Wire:
St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner, a far-left prosecutor bankrolled by Democrat megadonor George Soros, announced on Thursday that she is resigning from her position after facing pressure from the state’s Republican attorney general to resign and as she is facing a criminal contempt investigation for failing to do her job.
St. Louis prosecutor Kimberly M. Gardner was outed for failing to do her job. Like many other Soros-backed prosecutors, she was neglecting law and order, leading to chaos. One official called her office a “rudderless ship of chaos.”
We are in no way surprised. These far-left prosecutors have popped up across the country; they’re advocates for defunding the police, decriminalizing a long list of crimes, and ending cash bail. The results have been obvious.
Crime is skyrocketing in many cities across America. In St. Louis, Gardner refused to show up in court or even manage her caseload. She has been accused of “complete indifference” to her job and a “conscious disregard for the judicial process.”
Critics say she was neglecting her job, to the benefit of criminals:
If she let her office go into chaos, it would make prosecuting criminals impossible. Many would be released, without convicts, free to break the law again.
What this amounted to was more crime and a lack of concern for law-abiding citizens, who are becoming victims. Pressure from this case has forced Gardner to resign, though she hasn’t admitted to anything.
Instead, she claims race and gender as the reason she was being ousted.
However, one might say that Americans have no problem with women of color as prosecutors if they actually do their job. We are a meritocracy. Americans love people of all races if they actually keep their word. But when an elected official deliberately refuses to protect a city from criminals?
All the posturing in the world is meaningless.
- Soros-backed St. Louis prosecutor forced to resign after a criminal investigation.
- Kimberly M. Gardner had refused to do her job, leading to chaos in her office.
- The leftist was forced out but refused to admit to her failures.
