(Chris Parker, Headline USA) Soros-backed Democrat St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner has been found to have violated several legal ethics rules by a Missouri legal disciplinary panel in her failed invasion of privacy case against former governor Eric Greitens, reported Just the News.
The panel found that Gardner violated ethical rules related to evidence tampering, perjury, and bribery. Gardner allegedly lied to judges in both court filings and testimony when presenting her case.
William Tisaby, an ex-FBI agent turned private investigator, was hired by Gardner’s office to investigate Greitens. Both were accused of tampering evidence when a lack of supporting evidence was found.
It was later discovered that the prosecution was never in possession of the photo at the heart of Gardner’s case against Greitens. This led to the former governor paying the legal fees to compel discovery of evidence.
Tisaby later pleaded guilty to these charges. He also allegedly lied during a deposition and concealed relevant notes that were written while he was interviewing Greitens’ accuser.
Gardner’s office also called upon several witnesses in her case against the former governor. However, it was later found that each witness had allegedly been paid a total of $100,00 to testify in favor of the prosecution. She later tried to conceal those payments from Greitens’ defense team.
The case cost Missouri taxpayers approximately $115,000 and Greitens his career as Missouri’s governor. He has since launched a campaign to run for senate.
Ed Dowd, one of the attorneys serving as part of Greitens’ legal defense, stated, “Our defense team has over 100 years of experience combined, and we have never seen such outrageous misconduct.”
He went on state that the misconduct must be addressed.
So far, the panel is recommending a public remand for Gardner’s transgressions. Her case is now heading to the Missouri Supreme Court.
