BREAKING NEWS – St. Louis, Missouri – Republican Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey argued that St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner ‘unlawfully’ ‘refuses to do her job’ after he says she dismissed almost 12,000 cases.

The embattled George Soros-bankrolled prosecutor in St. Louis resigned amid a legal effort by Missouri’s attorney general to fire her for allegedly neglecting her duties.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner, the city’s top prosecutor, is stepping down following repeated, bipartisan calls for her resignation from officials across the state. Her office tweeted her resignation letter, which was addressed to the people of St. Louis.

“Effective immediately, I resign,” she stated in the letter. “I was treated harshly by both political parties. They didn’t have forgiveness in their hearts, a quality that I have always had. I didn’t prosecute certain people because I forgave them. This includes murderers, bank robbers, and most of the serial rapists, to name a few.”
