WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Eric Schmitt released a statement following Governor Parson’s appointment of Gabe Gore to be Circuit Attorney of St. Louis:
“For years, St. Louis’ most violent criminals have gotten a pass while victims have painfully waited for justice. This refusal to take crime seriously has negatively impacted not just the City of St. Louis but also the region and Missouri as a whole. It’s my hope that Circuit Attorney Gore will work to aggressively prosecute crime in the City of St. Louis, obtain long-awaited justice for victims, and ensure that those who live and work in the city feel safe,” said Senator Eric Schmitt.
