Noem Organized Gubernatorial Campaign Committee Monday at 4:59 p.m.

As expected, Kristi Noem is racing to file her campaign paperwork so she can transfer her Congressional campaign fund to her South Dakota gubernatorial campaign before Wednesday, when the new voter-approved Anti-Corruption Act will make the transfer of more than $40K from her federal campaign fund illegal:

When did she and treasurer Ted Hustead of Wall Drug get that statement of organization to Secretary of State Shantel Krebs?

Monday afternoon at 4:59 p.m., too late to get up on the public system until this morning.

Let’s hope Kristi and Ted have created the bank account so she can move her $1.9 million, 66% of which is out-of-state money, before the law changes on Wednesday.

  1. Wow. This might be one reason why she announced so early; to avoid the new Anti-Corruption Act which the people of her state just voted for.

    I wonder if a Republican opponent might emerge, or if she’s ALREADY been 100% chosen, and cleared, by the SDGOP to be the next Governor.

    Maybe South Dakota’s Illuminati predetermined our destiny a bit early for our taste, on this one, either that or she’s so inspired by Donald Trump that she’s going rogue and challenging the system.

    Actually Ted Hustead has nothing to do with Wall Drug anymore. I believe he still lives in Wall, but sold everything to his brother Rick. Rick and his family run the store now.

    I know this because it’s my hometown.

  3. I hope that Ms. Sandlin gets into this race now too. For that paying back thing.

    Yes, she is!

    Comical, it is. Republican lawmakers (social justice warriors, really) are not pleased that the gifts they’ve relied on to direct their legislative votes have been removed by the will of the people. The voters agreed that your corruption has to stop. Can’t you do what the people demand?

    If an anti-corruption law is passed, who do you suppose would be over the top upset? Why, that would be the corrupt.

  7. Thanks for that reminder, BH76! What would be a better phrase: “Ted Hustead of Wall Drug fame”?
