Indivisible Rapid City is hosting a march Sunday at noon to advocate impeaching Donald Trump. The national Impeachment March website suggests as grounds for impeachment violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause, violation of the Domestic Emoluments Clause, and obstruction of justice. See also Todd Epp’s more extensive draft articles of impeachment, and boil your preferred items down to picket signs as you see fit. Marchers meet at on the south side of Memorial Park, at Omaha Street and Mount Rushmore Road.
Rep. Kristi Noem will miss that march, but I hear that she’s hosting a town hall in Rapid City on Wednesday, July 5, 9:30* a.m., at the Pennington County Commission chambers on 130 Kansas Street. Never mind impeachment; just ask Rep. Noem what she would do if her kids tweeted the kinds of false personal insults that Donald Trump tweets. Then ask her if Trump was right when he said the job-killing health care bill she voted for is “mean.”
If those two events wear you down, Pennington County Democrats offer a pick-me-up the following Monday, July 10, with their Pennington County Democratic Friendraiser. “No business or planning,” Penn Dems promise, “just conversation with other Democrats.” 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. MDT at Thirsty’s, 819 W. Main, where the Penn Dems recommend the $5 burger special.
*Update 2017.07.01 13:22 CDT: The original notice I received said the Noem town hall would start at 10 a.m.; eager reader Susan below reports the time has been changed to 9:30 a.m. Arrive early, get a good seat!
