New Circuit Attorney in St. Louis
Last Friday, Missouri Gov. Mike Parson appointed Gabriel Gore as Circuit Attorney for St. Louis, replacing Kimberly Gardner, who resigned abruptly. Mr. Gore is a former Assistant U.S. Attorney, although his recent experience is in private practice. The announcement is here. Eric Heffernan and Katie Kull have this story in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The Governor’s announcement notes, “for too long dysfunction has plagued the Circuit Attorney’s Office.” Jordan Duecker has this article in the City Journal titled “An Irredeemable Legacy” on the shambles left by the departed “progressive” prosecutor.
