George Soros-Funded Attorney Resigns!

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner, a George Soros-funded prosecutor, has resigned from her position amid an effort to oust her for allegedly neglecting her duties.

Gardner’s resignation is effective June 1st.

She posted her resignation letter to Gov. Mike Parson (R) on Twitter Thursday.

“I want to start by saying it has been an honor of a lifetime to serve the people of the City of St. Louis, a community that is resilient and deeply committed to finding solutions to make life better for everyone. During my time as Circuit Attorney, I have tried to embody those values. I believe that is why St. Louis voters elected me twice,” the letter read.

“Unfortunately, since the time I took office, as the first Black, female prosecutor in the State, people outside of the city have targeted me and, to advance their goals, have also targeted the fundamental rights of the city’s voters.”

“In recent days, for example, The Missouri State Legislature began hearings on a bill that appears to permanently remove the right of every St. Louis voter to elect their Circuit Attorney, the only remaining elected position in our city’s criminal justice system,” the letter added.

Read the full letter below:



“Gardner was among the first prosecutors in the U.S. to receive the backing of left-wing megadonor George Soros,” Just the News reports.

From Just the News:

Just the News was among those parties seeking information from her office. In 2022, Just the News Editor-in-Chief and CEO John Solomon scored a court victory against Gardner, securing a judicial order that she hand over a trove of documents she had withheld citing privilege after being ordered to comply with an open-records request.

Gardner further characterized her resignation as an effort to prevent the disenfranchisement of her constituents, contending that external oversight efforts had undermined the office and that partisan legislation might eliminate the city’s right to elect its circuit attorney.

“The most powerful weapon I have to fight back against these outsiders stealing your voices and your rights is to step back,” she said. “And so, it is with a heavy heart but steadfast resolve that I am resigning my position as your Circuit Attorney.”

A January 2023 New York Post report cited Gardner as one of 75 prosecutors across the United States to receive backing from George Soros.

Biberaj is just one of 75 prosecutors nationwide who were backed by Soros for their pro-criminal bents, as a recent Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund report noted. After investing more than $40 million into this project, Soros-backed DAs (and their ideological allies) now represent at least one-fifth of Americans.

That $40 million is a drop in a bucket to the $32 billion that backs his political empire. But by focusing on key local races, Soros is having an outsize impact on people’s lives.

Flipping a legislature and changing the law is a lot more daunting than just electing one person who refuses to enforce the law. In many cases, Soros’ prosecutors decline to prosecute cases, toss charges or cut lax plea deals — bypassing the statutes on the books.

So egregious are the actions of the Soros-backed progressives that for the first time in history, these prosecutors have become household names — whether it be St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who made headlines for persecuting the McCloskeys for defending their home against rioters, Chicago’s Kim Foxx, known for her role in attempting a cover-up after actor Jussie Smollett’s hate crime against Jussie Smollett, and the now-recalled Chesa Boudin of San Francisco, the son of 1960s radicals who was raised by terrorist Bill Ayers and effectively legalized shoplifting in the city.

“There is absolutely no reason for the Circuit Attorney to remain in office until June 1. We remain undeterred with our legal quest to forcibly remove her from office,” Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey wrote.

“Every day she remains puts the city of St. Louis in more danger. How many victims will there be between now and June 1? How many defendants will have their constitutional rights violated? How many cases will continue to go unprosecuted?”

The Washington Examiner added:

The embattled attorney had been accused of neglecting her duties by Republican Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey. He had filed a writ of quo warranto in court and was looking to have her removed from her position via state law.

Bailey had accused Gardner of neglecting her job by taking nursing classes at the St. Louis University School of Nursing rather than performing her duties.

After Gardner’s resignation was announced, Bailey criticized her resignation date, saying there is “no reason” for her to remain in office until June 1.
