As has long been the case, there is apparently no local election too small to escape the scrutiny of billionaire mega-donor and progressive activist George Soros.
This fact can be evidenced by the fact that Soros recently made a sizable donation to a political action committee supporting Kim Gardner, the St. Louis prosecutor who filed charges against a St. Louis couple who brandished weapons to defend their home from angry protesters last month, as the Washington Examiner reported.
The couple at issue, Mark and Patricia McCloskey, became a national story during the protests that followed the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, when they took action to protect their home from a large group of demonstrators who broke through security gates in their neighborhood.
According to Gardner, the McCloskeys’ simple act of displaying firearms in a show of strength was enough to warrant felony charges.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R), however, has already said he would likely pardon the couple if convicted given the blatantly political nature of the prosecution and his belief that the pair did not break the law, according to Fox News.
Support from Soros
Soros, of course, is a major player on the presidential fundraising stage, but he also loves to try to influence down-ballot elections in which he can help install politicians who are amenable to his globalist agenda.
Gardner’s race is a perfect example of that, with Soros having poured six figures into her campaign coffers in recent weeks.
The Washington Examiner reported that a PAC created to support Gardner, the Missouri Justice and Public Safety PAC, recently received a check from Soros for $116,000.
Of the $116,000 Soros donated, the PAC has already reportedly given almost $78,000 directly to Gardner.
By all outward signs, Gardner is another Soros puppet willing to sell her services to the highest bidder, which some would say is the very definition of a corrupt prosecutor.
In addition to facing scrutiny for her ties to Soros, Gardner is now also being probed for allegedly accepting several vacations from an activist group and not reporting them to state authorities, as she is legally required to do, the Examiner notes.
For all of her righteous indignation about the conduct of the McCloskeys, it may be that Gardner will be the one in hot water after all is said and done.
