ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Nearly 90 pastors and ministers who support St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner signed a letter sent to Missouri Gov. Mike Parson, Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Sen. Josh Hawley saying their attacks on her over her decision to charge the Central West End couple, are egregious and targeted.
The letter reads, in part "The unwarranted attacks on her personhood and professionalism are extremely alarming in this time of heightened racial unrest."
The letter also criticizes Schmitt for cases of two black men they say he is ignoring including one who died in a Missouri Bootheel jail.
