Remove Des Moines County Attorney Amy Beavers from office.

Des Moines County Attorney Amy Beavers is wasting taxpayer dollars by not prosecuting people who police suspect are committing murders and other serious crimes in the city.

Police have evidence and probable cause for the murderers to the following victims: Breion Isaiah Combs, Julian "J.D." Menke, Kedarie Johnson, Virgue Orr, and others.  In one case for the murder of Deonte "Tae Tae" Carter, it was handled by the Attorney General's Office and not the county attorney.  But the county attorney refuses to prosecute nor go forward with the charges.

During a meeting last week, the Burlington Police Department and Iowa Department of Criminal Investigations were wondering why she still hadn't moved forward with charges in the Kedarie Johnson case.

In addition, she paid a $200 fine to not admit her opinion on violating Iowa's Open Records Law determined by the Iowa Public Information Board including costing taxpayer dollars tens of thousands of dollars for hiring a private Des Moines attorney.

Beavers blamed a jail guard despite having no evidence to writing a letter about her recently-hired medical examiner Cindy Bowen who was previously-fired from the jail for refusing to leave a room where an inmate and their lawyer were present.  The guard is suing the county for damages because of her blaming an innocent person.

We demand county attorney Amy Beavers to be removed from office for neglectful behavior including discrimination against the families of the victims from crime.  This is a gross and deliberate attempt to undermine the taxpayers.
