ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – A Fox News contributor is suing St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, accusing her of violating the Missouri Sunshine Laws.
John Solomon alleges that Gardner’s office did not respond to records requests that he made in July for contacts between Gardner, her staff, and those connected to the investigation of then-Gov. Eric Greitens.
He also claims that in August 2018, he spoke to someone in the Circuit Attorney's Office who said they had trouble locating the requested records because police had seized the office's email server.
Greitens admitted in January 2018 that he had an affair with a hairdresser. He was accused of taking a photo of the woman in a compromising position after a sexual encounter and then threatening to blackmail her with the photo if she made their affair public.
Lawyer Al Watkins, who represented the woman’s husband, is named in the lawsuit, as is former Missouri Times publisher Scott Faughn, Missouri State Representatives Jay Barnes and Stacey Newmann, and billionaire and political donor George Soros.
News 4 reached out to Gardner’s office and have yet to hear back.
