He fooled the person who wrote the LTE that I posted. He didn't fool me. I have never met him but his blog and his colunn revealed him as a liar and a bully. Unfortunately, many people in Falls Church simply could not see him for what he was.

Another LTE to the News-Press suggested that Gardner was the victim of a witch hunt because of his political views. Incredible, but there actually were those who believed that several parents would put their daughters through hell in order to destroy him and, by estension, Robin's political career.

I expect Gardner still has a few people in his corner, thuogh some may be there more for Robin than for him.

She won't divorce him unless he's convicted, perhaps not even then.

Trial on the latest charges is set for January 12. The retrial of the first case will be in February.

Is this the liberal idiot who had a column in the free Falls Church Paper? If so, fits the profile of an ivory tower liberal idealist to a tee. What a sick misguided idiot. Can't say I'm shocked if it's the guys column I read as he was absolutely clueless. Shame anyone trusted kids around him! So sad for them.

He was too busy blaming radical Puritan Republicans all the time to look in the mirror. Who was right? Republicans were! Typical liberal, free sex with everyone and welfare too! See where that liberal mentality gets us? Gets us this sickening stuff.

He wrote the newspaper column from mid-2010 to June 2011. The column closed after his first arrest. Prior to that he had a blog called Blueweeds for several years.

Gardner discusses the blog in this 2009 story. Occasionally other citizens posted there as well:

The curious may view Blueweeds here:

Robin is such an idiot. Thanks for helping put Mikey away!!


Gardner was arrested again, after a 17-year-old family relative accused him of molesting her when she was 12-years-old.

The alleged incident happened at the Gardner's Falls Church home on Thanksgiving weekend in 2009.

Gardner's wife, former Falls Church Mayor and Councilwoman Robin Gardner, who has continuously backed her husband, now appears to believe the 17-year-old relative.

In court documents, prosecutors outline a September phone call between Robin Gardner and the 17-year-old girl's father that he secretly recorded.

Robin Gardner is quoted as saying that her husband is, "not refuting that something has happened."

The father says, "It happened partially up in your room."

Mrs. Gardner affirms, "Mmm hmm."

The father says what happened is "along the same lines of what those other girls had talked about." Two incidents in which "he put his hand down her pants and touched her genitals," the father says.

Robin Gardner says "Michael is innocent of those other charges but I am not saying the same with (your daughter.)"

The father tells Robin Gardner that if Michael Gardner is charged, his lawyers will rip his daughter apart and he says "You're going to pay them to do that."

Robin Gardner insists that that's not going to happen and appears to ask the father to wait for the first case to be retried rather than go to police, and then settle the matter afterwards, differently.

"I kind of wanted to let this current thing play out and then if (your daughter) wants to bring Michael up on charges and you know, do it afterwards and it would be settled differently...Don't think that our family money is going to defend Michael against (your daughter) because that is not going to happen."

Prosecutors are claiming that Robin Gardner was acting as her husband's agent, offering to her relative an alternative to cooperating with the police.

This is a motion for admission of defendant's statements. The motions hearing is scheduled for Thursday. Defense attorneys will fight to keep this information out of the trial.

I tend to doubt that the Court will allow the recording. However, if it is admissible then Robin probably would be charged with obstruction of justice.

Robin Gardner was not in court today. She might find herself on the witness stand in January.

Another great report by Peggy Fox:

Virginia's wiretapping law requires only one party consent. Since it is likely both parties to the recorded call were in Virginia, the father of the victim did not violate the law as he consented to the call. Given the nature of the recording, it is also possible that the father obtained legal advice before making it, as it strikes me the line of inquiry he initiated served to elicit responses which would support the theory that Ms. Gardner's was her husband's agent. Just a guess.

I wonder what the result of the hearing motion was today. Perhaps a decision will issue soon.

This hearing seems to me to be a seismic event. If the call is admissible, it will affect decisions on the trial involving the relative and the re-trial involving the other three girls. Or it seems it would have to.

It strikes me a rational defendant at this point would agree to a plea, especially as the defendant's wife has and will suffer more reputational damage than ever previously imagined, which is bound to impact both her and their children in a way that it is difficult to describe.

Again, I am merely an observer. My hope is that there will be at least some regard for the young people involved (all of them) at this point. I was an abused kid in my younger days, and was always astounded at how so many adults were unable to see the world as a 9-13 year old kid sees it. I guess at some level the fancy intellectual, legal and in this case, political arguments might matter, but I think what matters most is the lens in which those kids see the world.

If you live...or lived in Falls Church, you endorsed and supported Gardner in his foul crimes. Nay, by voting for his wife, you were as guilty as Gardner himself

I think every single person in Falls Church should go to prison for a long, long time...

That's Wingnut's Sharia worldview.

Or should they all just be beheaded?

That'll teach those pedofag supporters what's what!

Indeed. Wingnut has provided a public service, doing a job that most of the local media won't do.

Aside from Channel 9, the television stations have pretty much ignored the story since Michael Gardner was released last summer. The WaPo's print edition has never mentioned his subsequent arrest on new charges.

Now that the judge has ruled the phone conversation as "hearsay", Robin has re-affirmed her support for her husband:

"While a D.C. TV news report claimed the phone conversation suggested that Robin Gardner “apparently admitted that her husband has admitted to the crime,” Robin Gardner issued a brief statement to the News-Press late yesterday saying, “I fully support Michael and believe he is innocent.”"

Yes Wingnut, it's a diabolical plot by a evil network of pedofags to support one of their own, and this pedofag gang is supported by foolish Great Falls citizens, marching in zombie lockstep at the bidding of their liberal America-hating leaders.

You are the only person who is brilliant enough to see the connections and the only person brave enough to bring this discovery to light.

You are to be congratulated for breaking this case wide open.

I very much doubt any politician would have signed one of the 60 letters. I'm sure Beyer and Moran know Gardner and I'm fairly sure Connolly and Kaine have met him. Gardner even hosted a fund raiser for Kaine in his home. However, they would have been very foolish to go out on a limb during a high profile trial and declare their support for anyone facing such charges.

The Court website finally has been updated. Twelve motions were considered last week, four of which were granted.

One limine was denied, presumably the prosecution motion to admit the telephone conversation between Robin and the father of the alleged victim. A continuance was granted, presumably requested by the defense. A defense motion to quash was denied. A bill of particulars was granted. Unfortunately it's impossible to determine the nature of the two limines that were granted or the other motions without a transcript of the hearing.

The News-Press story's headline last week said that the trial on the second set of charges was being postponed until January 15. However, the story's text states and the Court website now confirms that a hearing, not a trial, will be held on that date.

They may be going to retry Gardner on the first set of charges before they try him on the second set. The re-trial on the 2011 case is still set for February 2.

If Gardner wiggles out of the cesspool he is swimming in, it will set a precedence for future peds to get another trial.

Wow! Geer is murdered in cold blood by a Fairfax County cop who hasn't been named for almost 16 months and the citizens are supposed to trust the police when they get pulled over.

Now children can be sexually defiled by liberal politicians who have connections.

That Virginia liberal politician who had sex with an underage girl wasn't going to resign even after going to jail except the GOP has the majority so the dems in the Virginia house knew they had to convince him to resign in order to have any chance of manipulating the GOP to give them their way.(Morrisey I think is his name)

Liberals have no shame and they dominate the political agenda in federal, state, and county governments across this formerly great land.

I agree "wingnut" you basically nailed it! There is some back scratching going on with the liberal bigwigs helping Gardner. His wife is definitely in on it.

Ya know... that's exactly what went through my mind.

How could his defense convince a judge that Gardner had grounds to even get this hearing?

I'm not very swift with law, but it seems that almost every case I've read about got denied a hearing to argue for a new trial. The ones that succeeded in getting the hearing almost always got denied the new trial because if evidence wasn't presented in the first trial there was usually a legal precedent or statute for not allowing it which stood in favor of the prosecution 9 times out of ten.

I agree it will be very interesting.

Due to the lack of media coverage we simply don't know the subject of next month's hearing. In all fairness the story is not an easy one to cover, given that Gardner now is facing a hearing in one case and a re-trial in another, plus he's switched counsels.

Whether he's benefited from his local connections is unclear. Although his supporters have criticized FCCPD's investigation, there also have been rumors that the investigation was impeded. He was held at the ACDC for an unusually long time after his conviction before he was finally sent to prison. His bond was set at only $50,000 when he was later released. However, there may be reasonable explanations in each case.

Thank you "One quick point" for finding that statute. Here is the full text:

https://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?000+cod+19.2-271.2


Circuit court information for any district is available through the following link:

http://wasdmz2.courts.state.va.us/CJISWeb/circuit.jsp


Background of the trial judge (from the County website):

In 2012, Louise M. DiMatteo was appointed as a Judge of the Virginia’s 17th Judicial Circuit covering Arlington County and the City of Falls Church. Judge DiMatteo received her Juris Doctorate from Washington & Lee University in 1989, and her Bachelor of Arts from University of Virginia in 1986.

Prior to her appointment, Judge DiMatteo was a trial attorney for over 23 years and practiced with the Arlington County Attorney’s Office as a litigator and transactional attorney specializing in employment law, contracts and procurement, abuse and neglect issues related to elders and children as well as a variety of local government issues. Prior to joining the Arlington County Attorney’s office, Judge DiMatteo was an Assistant County Attorney in Fairfax, was in private practice with Siciliano, Ellis, Dyer and Bocarosse as a trial lawyer and was a criminal defense attorney with the Fairfax Public Defender’s Office.

Yesterday a hearing was held in Arlington Circuit Court. There were three major developments.

1. Gardner's trial on the second set of charges will begin on Wednesday, March 4. The alleged offense occurred in 2009.

2. The re-trial of the 2011 charges was originally scheduled to begin on Monday, February 2. However, that trial has been postponed (the Court's website now indicates it has been "withdrawn").

3. A hearing will be held on Thursday, February 12, at which motions will be heard on both sets of charges.

Speculation: If Gardner is convicted in the new trial the Commonwealth may not re-try him on the original charges. If he is acquitted, the re-trial presumably will proceed.

Maybe "Gardner fatigue" has set in at some media outlets.

Although not an earthshaking development you would think that it would at least be reported in the Falls Church News Press, the local paper of record. However, if you think that you don't know Nick Benton - the paper's editor and publisher, and close friend of Michael Gardner, who also just happens to be a former News-Press columnist and past FCC Democrat committee chairman.

On the other hand, if Gardner had been a prominent local Republican you can bet that Benton wouldn't have missed a beat on this story.

"A. Any person convicted of (i) more than one offense specified in subsection B or (ii) one of the offenses specified in subsection B of this section and one of the offenses specified in subsection B of § 18.2-67.5:3 when such offenses were not part of a common act, transaction or scheme, and who has been at liberty as defined in § 53.1-151 between each conviction shall, upon conviction of the second or subsequent such offense, be sentenced to the maximum term authorized by statute for such offense, and shall not have all or any part of such sentence suspended, provided it is admitted, or found by the jury or judge before whom the person is tried, that he has been previously convicted of at least one of the specified offenses."

So if he is convicted in the new trial, when they retry him on the old charges and reconvict him, the maximum penalty on one of those charges is life in prison which then becomes mandatory with the prior conviction. If they tried the cases in reverse order, the maximum penalty for the newer charge is less (20 years I think, which would still be good, but life is better).

Times running out for the PedoFreak...

Three viable options...

#1 Work out a plea bargain, which could possibly happen Thursday. It will need to happen SOON before the state begins the lengthy and costly process of trial preparation..

#2 Go to trial fighting, get convicted with the same DNA evidence of your slobber on some poor young girls panties; get another 20+ years in the can...

#3 Stockpile whatever meds the jail nurse is bringing you by hiding them under your tongue. Eat all at once and hope it kills you.

Be very interesting to see what goes on Thursday! Maybe Robin is working the phones trying to get Tim Kaine, Nick Benton and Eileen Filler-Corn to come to court and testify about what a big harmless Teddy Bear Mikey is.

I would think a list would also be public of "defense witnesses" who would come in to testify about what a great pillar of the Falls Church community is, but my guess is these are voluntary witnesses who do not require a process server or official notification.


Actually, Swangnutz, every single pedofag supporting resident of Falls Church has appeared to speak up for Gardner...there's thousands of people outside the courthouse, all lined up....it's like "It's a Wonderful Pedofag Life."

And if a pedofag hosts a fundraiser and some unwitting guest politician appears, he should be executed, too. Ignorance of Sharia Law is no excuse!

The Court generally takes several business days to update its database, so it's no surprise that we have no indication thus far as to what happened at last Thursday's hearing. Perhaps tomorrow.

The Commonwealth has subpoenaed quite a few people but not all of them may be called to testify. What's most interesting is that Robin has been served. Her testimony will be the highlight of the trial, assuming Michael does not take the stand himself.

As to Wingnut's question "Who are these people?" I have not seen the list of letter writers but I suspect it includes many prominent residents of Falls Church City, people whose names frequently appear in the News-Press and other FC media.

Politics, at all levels, is about networking and the Gardners established an extensive network during Robins's many years on the city council. Michael further expanded the network as chairman of the FC Democratic Committee.

The Gardners also were active members of the historic Falls Church. Robin now is on the vestry (governing board) of the parish. Significantly, she was elected to that office prior to Michael's conviction being overturned last summer.

Given their many connections it's not surprising that some of the Gardners' friends and associates would be willing to come forward as character witnesses or write a letter to the Court in Michael's behalf. However, most of these people probably had their illusions shattered when the second set of charges were filed.

This begs the question, why did they continue to support Michael after he was convicted on DNA evidence. Possible reasons.

1. Serious concerns about how the evidence was collected and the general conduct of the prosecution. The defense and some of the local media did their best to sow as many doubts as possible and some people bought into that.

2. Blind friendship, i.e., inability to accept reality. In the majority of child abuse cases there is a frequent refrain - "He's the last person I thought who would be capable of such a thing." Indeed. Such abusers generally have no prior criminal record and seem to be incapable of molestation or any other crime. When they're convicted their friends continue to see them as the person they always knew and not the one they actually are.

3. Blind party loyalty - not just the Democratic party but also the local clique that runs Falls Church. He was very much one of them and they just couldn't bear to turn their back on him. This sort of thing can go on for generations. Consider that some people still believe Alger Hiss was innocent.

Well, welcome to America, Wingnut. Where the guilty are not convicted, the innocent are and conservatives never serve their country.
Ain't America grand?

If only there were some legal system in place, where this Gardner could be tried...oh, that's right there is!

...when is Robin going to divorce him. Makes me laugh that they all think she is innocent. She tried to talk the father of the most recent victim out of pressing charges to a later date. She says all the other victims were not molested. At the very least she is a terrible person who supports her pedophile husband in addition to saying she would bring free wi-fi to Falls Church and never delivered.

Fact about Mrs. Michael Gardner: She promised free City Wi-Fi. She never consulted with City staff or a third party consultant to inquire about the feasability according to city management.

I watched the video. Another great job by Peggy Fox, but frankly I have my doubts on this.

If you are actually going to hire a hitter you don't talk about it with another inmate, unless the inmate tells you he has people outside who can deliver on a contract, but that's taking one heck of a chance. Who can you trust in that environment?

The only person he really can trust is Robin, but I find it hard to believe she has the right contacts. Even if she did most criminals have reservations about killing children.

And keep in mind that this could involve as many as four victims: the two girls from the 2011 case, the relative from the 2009 case, and the other girl from 2011, whose case isn't being retried but who could be called as a witness.

I've no doubt he's guilty on the child abuse counts, but it's a huge stretch to believe he (and possibly Robin) would actually try to contract murder.

Regarding those pictures:

3rd Photo Left to Right - Former Delegate Jim Scott, Robin, News-Press Publisher Nick Benton, former Congressman Jim Moran, unknown.

4th Photo - Man is former FCC councilman Dan Maller. Michael Gardner probably standing behind the woman who's talking to Robin.

The photos are around five years old, possibly taken at a Democrat party function.

Jim Moran. Tim Kaine. Theo Stamos. All elected. All at an accused pedophile's house and now a guy that hires a hitman. Where does Nick Benton figure into this? The Larouche folks know how to put a hit out.

Thanks Democrats!

Maybe it's just me, but Nick Benton looks really constipated in that pic. He looks like that in real life, though, too.
