St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner on Monday admitted to wrongdoing before a state legal board in a case she prosecuted against former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens and will accept a reprimand, according to news reports.
Gardner appeared before the Missouri Office of Disciplinary Counsel in a St. Louis County courthouse for claims of prosecutorial misconduct. Both sides agreed to a reprimand, but the Missouri Supreme Court will decide disciplinary actions, according to KMOV TV.
Gardner, who has had financial campaign support from liberal megadonor George Soros, was accused in a 73-page report of failing to disclose evidence to Greitens' lawyers, misrepresenting evidence and other ethical violations, the CBS-TV affiliate also reports.
Greitens is now running in the Republican primary of an open U.S. Senate seat representing Missouri in Congress.
