UPDATE:
St. Louis prosecutor, Kim Gardiner, remove by Judge Thomas Clark for alleged "misconduct". He said: "her emailed solicitations for campaign contributions demonstrated she and her office have a personal interest in the case and jeopardized Mark McCloskeys’ right to a fair trial."

I am not surprised that this case has not been dismissed...judges are just as corrupt as the city prosecutor...The violent mod that attacked the defendants violated the below RSMo....there could likely be more charges applied to the violent mob by a reasonable and responsible prosecutor...but this is a moot point at this juncture...the below RSMo are the justification that the defendants must raise...it is their burden to do so in MO.

From various news reports last night, the lawyers have petitioned the judge in the wife's case (a different judge than her husband's) to disqualify Gardiner and her office as well.

Within the last couple of days, there was a news report that Mrs. McCloskey's lawyer had been successful in getting her judge to disqualify Gardiner from prosecuting this case.
It's past due to hang Gardiner "out to dry". As she was running unopposed, it isn't surprising that she won re-election.

He claims to be a republican, yet he has contributed to BLM and other leftist organizations. His opponents are former MO governor Eric Grietens (hounded from office by St. Louis prosecutor Kim Gardiner) and somebody else but I can't remember who. They all claim to be "republicans". :rolleyes:

The special prosecutor has dropped the felony charge of "tampering" with the evidence (her pistol) and Mrs. McCloskey is now only charged with "misdemeanor harassment".

The SP has not commented on whether or not he will do the same for the husband.

H U Z Z A H....

idiot savant couple plead guilt per AP, quote:
A St. Louis couple who gained notoriety for pointing guns at social justice demonstrators pleaded guilty Thursday to misdemeanor charges, but the man left the courthouse defiantly pledging to “do it again” if faced with the same circumstances.

Patricia McCloskey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor harassment and was fined $2,000. Her husband, Mark McCloskey, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor fourth-degree assault and was fined $750.

They also agreed to give up the weapons they used during the confrontation. unquote

Most likely destroyed his political career in doing so.

Pro-Trump lawyer who pointed gun at BLM protesters defiant after pleading guilty​

Mark McCloskey released a campaign video after pleading guilty to an assault misdemeanor promising to do it ‘again, and again, and again’

St. Louis couple who pointed guns at protesters pleads guilty to misdemeanor​

Why it matters: Mark McCloskey launched his bid for Missouri's Senate seat last month. Thursday's plea deal will not interfere with his campaign.
just two examples recording that the idiot savant McCloskey will push and continue to play the I was forced to plead guilty martyr card to play on citizens civility to get elected!

It's a shame they took this easy way out. It may be that the legal costs were more than he wanted to pay so he took this alternative. I would have had more respect for them if they had fought it out.
