[Ed. – This is the agenda-driven prosecutor who’s been determined to make an example of the McCloskeys for trying to defend their home from a mob that was literally threatening to enter it and do them harm. Video evidence confirms that. This is unmitigated good news.]
The Missouri Supreme Court on Tuesday denied St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner’s request to be allowed to prosecute a St. Louis couple who waved guns at racial injustice demonstrators last summer.
The court did not explain its reasons for denying Gardner’s appeal, KSDK-TV reported.
The ruling means former U.S. U.S. Attorney Richard Callahan, who was appointed special prosecutor, will oversee the case. …
Gardner was removed as prosecutor after their attorney successfully argued that she used the case for political gain by citing it in campaign fundraising emails.
Gardner appealed that decision to the Missouri Eastern District Appeals court, which denied her motion, and then appealed to the state Supreme Court.
