St. Louis Prosecutor Who Charged ‘Ken & Karen’ McCloskey Found ‘Guilty Of Professional Misconduct’ Could Lose Law License

Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the couple that stood guard of their home during a BLM protest with an assault rifle and a small handgun were charged by Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner on counts of unlawful use of a weapon and evidence tampering, according to The Western Journal.

Patricia McCloskey claimed that “they were going to kill us.”

“They were going to come in there. They were going to burn down the house.”

“They were going to be living in our house after I was dead, and they were pointing to different rooms and said, ‘That’s going to be my bedroom and that’s going to be the living room and I’m going to be taking a shower in that room.’”

In December a judge ruled that Gardner had undertaken “criminal prosecution for political purposes.”

Gardner may now have every one of her cases under review because she has been found “guilty of professional misconduct.”

Gardner may even lose her entire license.

“Authorities now say Gardner concealed investigation details from her team, failed to disclose facts to Greitens’s legal team, and misrepresented evidence to a court of law.”

Gardner has “denied the allegations as she faces the prospect of suspension or losing her law license.”

“The top prosecutor said the investigation is ‘another attempt’ by her political foes to diminish her character, she claimed in a 41-page retort.”

“The Information is another attempt by Ms. Gardner’s political enemies — largely from outside St. Louis — to remove Ms. Gardner and thwart the systemic reforms she champions.”

From The Western Journal:

The case stems from an investigation into then-Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, a Republican who resigned in May of 2018. In January of that year, Gardner enlisted the services of William Don Tisaby, a private investigator, to look into Greitens’ background.

Tisaby, who has since been charged with perjury, was hired to look into allegations the governor had an inappropriate extramarital relationship with an anonymous individual known by the initials “K.S.” That led to felony invasion of privacy charges that he took and transmitted a semi-nude photo of an individual.

The photo was only part of Greitens’ issues; he would end up resigning in order to have charges dropped accusing him of tampering with a list of veterans charity donors, another felony. However, Gardner had played fast and loose with the rules during her investigation into the invasion of privacy charges.

Unlike ’80s buddy-cop movies, where the worst thing that happens to the rogue law enforcement official is that some archetypal upright superior character yells, “Your gun, your badge, now!”, this isn’t going to magically go away in the third act once Axel Foley collars the perp.
