Bosworth Senate Scam Financially Done: Zero Receipts in Q1 2015, All Cash Spent on Lawyers

One small national nightmare has finally come to an end. The Annette Bosworth for Senate money scam has dried up. According to the Bosworth’s Q1 2015 report to the Federal Election Commission, no one has sent her fake campaign money in 2015, and she has spent all of her remaining campaign cash on lawyers.

Report Year Report Type Total Receipts Total Disbursements Cash on Hand
2013 October Quarterly $50,229 $21,506 $28,722
2013 Year-End $315,314 $94,391 $249,645
2014 April Quarterly $772,326 $673,539 $348,432
2014 Pre-Primary $570,161 $819,907 $98,686
2014 July Quarterly $229,849 $283,742 $44,793
2014 October Quarterly $216,855 $208,316 $53,332
2014 Year-End $11,540 $51,571 $13,301
2015 April Quarterly $0 $13,301 $0
totals: $2,166,274 $2,166,273

Over 21 months, Bosworth fleeced faraway gullible retirees and uninformed conservatives out of $2.17 million. At least a quarter million of that sum (including $20K+ in contributions received in June 2014 and reported on the July 2014 quarterly report) flowed into Bosworth’s coffers after her crushing June 3, 2014, primary defeat and arrest for perjury on her nominating petitions.

The Bosworth campaign’s last three checks all went to lawyers:

  • Beck Law, Prof. LLC, Sioux Falls, SD, January 29, 2015: $9,852.70.
  • Beck Law, Prof. LLC, Sioux Falls, SD, February 18, 2015: $2,318.64.
  • Fairfield and Woods, PC, Denver, CO, January 21, 2015: $1,130.00.

Previously, Bosworth burned up over $85,000 on lawyer fees and settlement costs. Bosworth still lists a $33,000 debt to Sioux Falls lawyer Joel Arends as disputed. With her campaign cash on hand now zeroed out, she’ll have to foot any settlement with Arends and the costs of her May 18–22 perjury trial in Pierre herself.


  1. Jim 2015-04-21 14:22

    Is she still soliciting for her legal defense fund?

  2. Deb Geelsdottir 2015-04-21 15:41

    Is it legal to spend campaigndonations on legal fees?

  3. Jim 2015-04-21 17:47

    Bit of a shell game.

  4. grudznick 2015-04-21 19:18

    Has anybody been to her house for dinner to see how things are going and if they are living off the fat of the hog? Is the pretty young doctor driving fancy new cars or anything like that?

  5. 90 schilling 2015-04-21 21:35

    Pay the tax and spend campaign funds as you wish. Now for the unpaid bills to IRIS.

    Arends does appear to be the double agent who receives little attention. Dig it out Larry Kurtz.

  6. Roger Cornelius 2015-04-21 21:53

    Damn, Bosworth doesn’t have enough to pay the fines and penalties for hubby Chad Haber’s failure to file his state financial election statements.

  7. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-04-21 22:12

    Deb, my read is that since the petition perjury was related to her campaign, FEC rules would allow Bosworth to spend campaign funds on her defense, if she had any campaign funds left. But I’m not a lawyer; we should check with Arends.

  8. tara volesky 2015-04-22 04:56

    Thank you Marty Jackley for financially wiping out another SD citizen. Is Brandon Tallifero and Shirley Schwab going to get their money back? Are all the children that were sexually molested going to get their childhoods back. The media knows these people along with dozens of others have not received justice. As long as people like you play into the hands of the Republican machine, the Democrat party will be no different than the Republicans. There is a reason why so many former Democrats have left the party. Just look at the numbers. Cory, why don’t you interview Marty Jackley, Mike Rounds, and Joel Arends so they can tell you what an evil person Annette Bosworth really is. Have her kids been taken away yet? It is sad to think that we live in a state where people think Bosworth should go to prison for 24 years and lose her medical license over 37 signatures. lol. Herd mentality. SDWC, SDFP and mainstream media blacks out what is really going on in SD. Keep with the safe issues like teacher pay because printing former Senator Rod Hall’s letter or Steve Sibson’s letter to the editor might just reveal why teachers are not important anymore. Even a teacher who was nominated for teacher of the year at a Sioux Falls school and who has 8 years of teaching experience cannot get into the Mitchell School District. There is a reason. Steve Sibson is representing the taxpayers of Mitchell. He is in the process of getting an injunction against the school board because he believes they are not following the law concerning the FAC. Just thought I would give you a little news. So Cory, why don’t you ask Joe Graves and the school board why they think they need a 1,240 seat stand alone FAC when they average about 200 plus people per show. Doesn’t quite make sense to me. That’s why I decided to run for school board. It’s time to give the power back to the teachers and give them their freedom to teach the way they want to teach instead of the Corporate/ Beaurucrats that want them to teach to some stupid tests. Can someone who is not a rubberstamp and who questions everything win?

  9. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-04-22 05:41

    Marty Jackley had nothing to do with the legal expenses Bosworth incurred in Colorado by trying to stiff her campaign manager, Patrick Davis.

    Marty Jackley initiated the investigation because I brought evidence of perjury to his attention. Blame me.

    Marty Jackley’s proper prosecution of Annette Bosworth has no connection to his illegitimate prosecution of Taliaferro and Schwab.

    Marty Jackley can tell me nothing that I don’t already know about the kind of people Bosworth and Haber are.

    Bosworth deserves to lose her medical license, for reasons well beyond her petition perjury.

    The Bosworth issue has nothing to do with the Mitchell school board or the fine arts center controversy. If someone asks you a question about Mitchell school board policy and you go off on a rant like this about ten other unrelated issues, you will deserve to lose.

  10. tara volesky 2015-04-22 06:01

    OK, Cory, how much in taxpayers money has Marty Jackley spent on the Annette Bosworth case, and Cory, it looks as if you have made this into a PERSONAL vendetta against Annette Bosworth. Touchy, touchy. What is the real reason you went after Annette Bosworth? Surly it wasn’t over 37 signatures. I could think of better things to blog during an important Senatorial race, such as helping get Rick Weiland elected. Truth hurts Cory. Propublica and Newsweek must not have their facts right when it comes to the Bosworth story. I hope you will correct them. I forgot to also rant that former Senator Rod Hall is also a former Mitchell School board member.

  11. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-04-22 07:19

    I have laid out my real reasons. Jackley is spending the same amount he’d spend to investigate and prosecute other crimes. Your random and vague citation of Propublica and Newsweek contradict none of the facts I present above or in any of my other coverage.

    Think Al Capone and income tax evasion. Bosworth has committed many crimes. She has gotten away with many crimes. Catching her in and convicting her of this crime against the public trust (and yes, oaths and the integrity of the electoral process matter) is only a small part of the justice that needs to be done.

  12. John 2015-04-22 07:54

    Ah, fools and their money . . . .

    or is that, ‘right wing nuts’ and their money . . . .

    but I repeat myself.

  13. tara volesky 2015-04-22 08:13

    John, are you talking about Arends and Davis. Bosworth doesn’t have any money. I am sure Cory thoroughly combed threw Annette’s FEC report and all he reported on was Starbucks coffee. So Cory where did all the money go after paying the campaign fundraising company….can’t think of the name. Who was the Accounting firm that handled the campaign finances? Can you name the many crimes that she committed? This is called character assassination. You might want to take a poll and see how many people that have run for state wide office, other than Nick Nemec have witnessed 100% of the signatures.

  14. 90 schilling 2015-04-22 08:52

    “”I have laid out my real reasons. Jackley is spending the same amount he’d spend to investigate and prosecute other crimes.”” You’re probably right, Cory. Unfortunately our state lacks in prosecuting and investigating anything but those least able to defend themselves.

  15. Craig 2015-04-22 09:15

    Tara, illegal acts of all kinds need to be prosecuted. We cannot allow crimes to go unpunished merely because we like the person or because we agree with them politically, or because they are attractive, or because we feel there are more heinous crimes occurring elsewhere. It is the duty of our government to prosecute crimes when possible and when the facts indicate a crime has been committed – anything less leads to chaos and corruption.

    If you believe Bosworth should get a free pass on her actions simply because it isn’t the equivalent of child abuse or murder, then you are unfit to serve the citizens in any capacity whether it be in the legislature, school board, or the leader of the local Girl Scout troop. Thankfully, thus far, the citizens have recognized that fact.

    Martin Luther King Jr. once wrote “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”, and that statement is as true today as it was when he was writing it from his jail cell in Birmingham. You may not admire, respect, or agree with Marty Jackley, but he has a job to do, and his job is to ensure those who break the law are prosecuted.

    It is well past time to stop blaming others for the failures and illegal acts committed by team Bosworth. You seem to believe she is innocent and this is a witch-hunt, but she has previously admitted she broke the law and her only excuse is that she was told to do so. If that is her defense then so be it, but she needs to be held accountable for her actions. Excuses are not defenses, and the old excuse of “he told me to do it” didn’t work for the Boston Marathon bomber anymore than it will work for Annette Bosworth.

    Personal responsibility is important Tara. That seems to be a fact you have yet to grasp.

  16. tara volesky 2015-04-22 09:19

    Jackley has a blank check……..our money, to spend as much as he wants. This case should have been open, shut. Pretty simple. First offense, OK, misdemeanor. Now pay a fine and learn from your mistake. Petitioners, be careful, someone may be watching over your shoulder. Witness every signature because you don’t want to end up in the big house with Annette. I won’t be circulating petitions in this police state, because I might only witness 99.9% of the signatures. Felony.

  17. Les 2015-04-22 09:35

    Comparing the Boston marathon and Annette Bosworth. Insanity continues at Maddville, Craig.

  18. TJ 2015-04-22 09:41

    This case should have been over in September, so if you want to blame anyone for the amount of money spent, blame Annie, she’s the one dragging this case. If the case would have gone to court when scheduled, she would probably be out of prison by now. Annie sounds like a 45 record without the adapter and as annoying as Lucy, “But, Ricky, I have no Money. But, Ricky, I have no money. But, Ricky, I have no money.”

  19. Craig 2015-04-22 09:51

    Tara – a case can only be open and shut if the criminal accepts responsibility and agrees to plead guilty. Bosworth has shown no indication she is ready to admit in court that she broke the law and she is still trying to convince the public that she is a victim here. In fact Tara, she sent letters seeking donations for her legal defense fund where she states in writing “I am 100% innocent”. Let that sink in for a minute Tara… this is a woman who admitted she didn’t witness all the signatures. This is a woman who admitted she was out of the country when many of the signatures were collected. This is a woman who knowingly and willfully signed a legal document claiming to have witnessed signatures that she knew was not a true statement, because she herself had actually MAILED petitions to several individuals and wasn’t even in the same country when they were actually signed. This is a woman who had her employee ask patients at her office to sign her petition even though she wasn’t present at the time, yet this is the same woman who claims to be 100% innocent.

    So explain to me how exactly this case could be open and shut if she is claiming to be innocent? Innocent people aren’t likely to accept a plea deal, and it seems to me she is running around still playing the victim card. She breaks the law and feels it is no big deal so she should be left alone.

    I doubt anyone wants to see her behind bars nor does anyone expect her to be slapped with massive fines. But she does need to be held accountable. Our election process is important, and we cannot allow people to manipulate it and destroy the integrity.

    Stop making excuses for Bosworth – she has plenty of her own to go around. She has been proven to be a liar, and she and her husband have taken advantage of many, many people in the past. Why aren’t you concerned about those who have lost money to Bosworth/Haber? Why don’t you care about those who spent money on land raffle tickets when the land was never raffled? Why don’t you care about those who have loaned or given money to Bosworth and Haber only to see them disappear? Why don’t you care about those on fixed incomes that donated to the Bosworth campaign under false premises?

    There are plenty of real victims here – and none of them are named Annette Bosworth.

    As to the law, if you disagree that the penalty for her crimes should be a felony, the time to address that issue would be BEFORE committing the crime. Why don’t you write some letters to the legislature and ask them to change the punishment for SDCL 22-11-28.1 (filing a false or forged instrument) so it is no longer a felony. Complaining about the punishment after the crime has been committed just doesn’t seem to carry the same weight.

  20. Craig 2015-04-22 09:53

    Les, you can clearly see I’m not comparing their crimes – I’m comparing their excuses. In both cases we are being told someone else told them to commit a crime, and the point is those types of excuses aren’t valid defenses unless you have the mental capacity of a small child.

    Personal responsibility matters. We, as adults, make our own decisions and we need to be held accountable for them.

  21. tara volesky 2015-04-22 09:57

    Craig, maybe we need to start with our own politicians who seem to be above the law. There is a reason SD is at the top being one of the most corrupt states in the nation. The State broke the law stealing Indian children from their homes. Does the state go to jail? Mike Rounds Stole $300,000 flying the state plane on taxpayers money. He got caught by the Argus Leader. Did he go to prison? No he went to the US Senate. Need I say more. Don’t even get me started on EB-5.

  22. Les 2015-04-22 09:58

    “”Our election process is important, and we cannot allow people to manipulate it and destroy the integrity.””” Yes it is Craig. Finally a liberal supporting real voter ID.

  23. Craig 2015-04-22 10:06

    Again Tara those are separate issues. We are talking about Bosworth here, and the old excuse of “but he broke the law too!” doesn’t work as a valid defense.

    You’ll have no argument from me that there are many crimes which go unpunished – but that is no reason to ignore all crimes. (Sort of the point of the MLK Jr. quote I cited above in case you missed it)

    Instead of trying to make excuses for Bosworth for a crime she knowingly committed, you should devote your energy into causes worth fighting.

  24. Craig 2015-04-22 10:11

    Les – I can see you’re trolling and I don’t want to distract from the topic at hand. However I will say that we, as a people, should do everything in our power to make it easier for citizens to express their will via the power of free and open elections. Those who suggest we limit such powers under the guise of ‘protecting the integrity of elections’ are merely manipulating the system for their own advantage.

    If and when we see widespread voter fraud as a result of a lack of identification then I’ll be concerned, but as it sits we see more fraud from those running for office than we have ever seen from those voting in the elections, so I don’t feel it is an area worthy of reform.

  25. tara volesky 2015-04-22 10:13

    Hey Cory and Craig, check out the SDHSAA audit on Pure Pierre Politics blogsite. 24 Boston Red Sox Tickets? Annette, looks like you are going to have cellmates. lol.

  26. Les 2015-04-22 10:20

    “”If and when we see widespread voter fraud as a result of a lack of identification then I’ll be concerned, but as it sits we see more fraud from those running for office than we have ever seen from those voting in the elections, so I don’t feel it is an area worthy of reform””. I agree with you 100%. I’m not a Boz/Haber fan but have we seen any kind of fraud on petition, worthy of changing the law for?

  27. tara volesky 2015-04-22 10:28

    Craig, whoever you are. Do you not have a last name? I am fighting for a good cause. Bosworth admitted to signing the petition. Don’t you think it is a little insane of the AG not wanting to settle the case by dropping the felony and pleading to a misdemeanor and paying a fine like the 5 guys did during the John Thune race. Just saying equal rights for both genders. Is this still a White Male Dominant state where women still need to be put in their place? lol. Come on Craig, give me one of your lawyer answers again.

  28. Daniel Buresh 2015-04-22 10:51

    Anyone sticking up for Bosworth and her illegal actions is a complete moron and has no business in any leadership role. She broke the law. She admitted to breaking the law. She is now wasting taxpayer’s money by dragging her feet. This has nothing to do with EB-5, corruption in SD, Boston Red Sox tickets, stealing indian children, attacking women, or any other attempt to deflect from the real topic. You can make up lies all you want about so and so doing something and not getting charged, but the fact of the matter is you have nothing to back it up. Mike didn’t steal any money and continuing to state that with no factual information is clear defamation and libel. Anyone who votes for you Tara is blind and a fool.

  29. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-04-22 10:57

    As usual, Tara blows a report on Annette Bosworth into distractions about anything but Annette Bosworth. Not one word here has refuted the facts I have laid out here about Bosworth’s campaign finances. Not one word here has refuted the facts I discovered in investigating Bosworth’s petitions, facts that have led to her arrest and indictment for perjury.

    And yes Tara, I have witnessed every signature on the petitions I’m carrying. It’s not that hard. If you can’t follow that rule, don’t circulate.

  30. tara volesky 2015-04-22 11:12

    Daniel, maybe the Argus Leader should be sued for defilation and libel. That’s where I read it. Cory, then why do you keep reminding people to make sure they witness every signature. IT’S NOT THAT HARD. SD is once again going to be a laughing stock if Bosworth goes to prison.

    Other way around Daniel, Bosworth isn’t wasting taxpayers money, MJ is. She wanted this settle months ago. He won’t settle unless he can take her medical license. How about the electric chair.

  31. tara volesky 2015-04-22 11:27

    Cory, nice to see so many Republicans defending you Cory….ooops that’s right you were a Republican. You still have some of those traits by defending the establishment. And Daniel, if you lived in Mitchell, I wouldn’t expect you to vote for me because I am not part of the good old boys’ club, you know the handful of people that call all of the shots because they know want’s best for the working slug.

  32. Daniel Buresh 2015-04-22 11:28

    Oh really Tara, the Argus stated Mike “stole” 300k? Please, oh please, show me that link. I bet you can’t find it because even the Argus isn’t that stupid. She should have lost her medical license years ago. I don’t feel a bit bad about her losing he career after the years and years of shady activities she has done. Marty Jackley is doing his job. There are so many critics of him you would think everyone was a lawyer or in criminal justice.

  33. tara volesky 2015-04-22 11:34

    Daniel, keep brown nosing and you just might get a government appointment. lol. You’re sounding pretty syrupy young man. lol.

  34. Daniel Buresh 2015-04-22 11:34

    We defend Cory on this topic because it has nothing to do with partisan lines and it has everything to do with our election process and not ripping off citizens in SD with raffle scams. I wouldn’t vote for you because to me you are nothing more than an Al Sharpton who gets his jollies off whoring out situations that don’t warrant it. You bring drama to the table, not logic. You are driven by emotions. You exemplify everything that is wrong with our political system by bringing attention to issues that are not even relevant or pertinent to the future success of our country or your district. You will do more harm than good.

  35. Lynn 2015-04-22 11:39

    Cory & Tara,

    Do you remember the “Gong Show” from years ago where the people could “gong” a bad a act from the show and spare the audience suffering? Cory can you put up something on your blog that resembles the Gong complete with sound effects so we as readers can “Gong” a commenter off the blog with enough votes/gongs? Example Sibby was “Gonged” off the blog :)

  36. Les 2015-04-22 12:31

    Everything about this post has nothing to do with illegal actions by Bosworth.

    But, to follow the trail set here in the replies, in my mind the greatest corruptions are the scams they perped on innocent victims such as land raffles and other similar fraud in the southwest.

    For someone to say my intent should be taken away because she(Boz) didn’t witness my signature, DB, that is who I believe fits your description off complete moron.

  37. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-04-22 12:36

    A gong widget—interesting suggestion, Lynn! I would worry about abuse… but yes, these Bosworth threads do devolve into gong material.

    Bring logic, not drama—I think Daniel Buresh and I could get along. That’s a good rule for the entire blogosphere, and a hard rule Bosworth will run into in court before a serious judge who knows how to run a courtroom.

  38. Lynn 2015-04-22 12:44

    It’s all based on facts strictly pertaining to the actions of Annette Bosworth right? Not constant deflections, excuses, distractions and especially drama. I’m sure the Judge, lawyers and court staff will be prepared to keep this strictly business and render justice. It should all be pretty straight forward. Sorry! I’m not an attorney nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

  39. tara volesky 2015-04-22 13:20

    Can you imagine Elisabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders trying to run for office in SD. They would be run right out of this state. The good, kind Senator McGovern can now rest in peace. He took such awful verbal abuse right to his face in his home town of Mitchell. It took a native of MN who is a teacher at MHS to recognize the Senator with a small plaque.

  40. Roger Cornelius 2015-04-22 13:59

    Hopefully there are better candidates for the Mitchell School Board than Steve Sibson and Tara Volesky.

  41. Craig 2015-04-22 14:48

    Tara: “Craig, whoever you are. Do you not have a last name?”

    Yes I do – thanks for asking.

    Tara: “I am fighting for a good cause.”

    What cause is that exactly – the expansion of your own ego, or defending a criminal who has both admitted she broke the law, yet has also stated she is 100% innocent?

    Tara: “Bosworth admitted to signing the petition. Don’t you think it is a little insane of the AG not wanting to settle the case by dropping the felony and pleading to a misdemeanor and paying a fine like the 5 guys did during the John Thune race.”

    Tara, if you have evidence that Bosworth or her attorney suggested they reach a plea deal then share it. However if this is second-hand information from Bosworth herself I’m afraid that isn’t good enough since she has proven she has trouble telling the truth.

    I’m all for Jackley ending this quickly – and I’d be in full support of a misdemeanor charge with no jail time – IF and only IF she admits her guilt. Considering she continues to profess her innocence, I somehow doubt it will happen. She wants her day in court because the longer this drags on, the longer she can claim she is the victim, and the longer she has people like you defending her actions.

    Tara: “Just saying equal rights for both genders. Is this still a White Male Dominant state where women still need to be put in their place?”

    So now you feel oppressed and need to make this a sexist issue? Newsflash Tara – this has nothing to do with Bosworth’s sexual orientation. You’ll note in the Thune case cited above, all five who were prosecuted were males. White males if you really want to be specific.

    By the way, last I checked both the President and Vice President of the school board you’re running for are women, and one of the other members is also a woman. On a statewide level, our lone member of the House is a woman, who replaced a woman before her. The point is, if you fail once again to be elected to the school board, don’t assume it has anything to do with being a woman and start understanding it has everything to do with your platform and ideas.

  42. Craig 2015-04-22 15:01

    Roger – There are two incumbents running for Mitchell School Board again, and a few other qualified challengers.

    Then you have the perpetual candidates who can’t seem to take a hint.

    The sad part of the story is that the current school board President (Theresa Kriese) isn’t running for re-election. That is Mitchell’s loss.

  43. Lynn 2015-04-22 15:51

    Craig & Roger,

    If I’m still here in South Dakota I’ll be sure to vote on June 2nd and watch these two perpetual candidates go down in flames once again. Will they both play the victim again after they are soundly defeated? Most likely.

  44. tara volesky 2015-04-22 16:04

    Hey, Mitchell citizens, if you want a $20 million dollar FAC without a vote or public debate, then don’t vote for me. I will not rubberstamp this project. A vote for me is a vote against the FAC and for the taxpayer.

  45. Roger Cornelius 2015-04-22 16:31


    Well, I’m glad you’re still here, at least for awhile.

    I’ve seen the Sibson and Volesky candidates for local government before, they will use their elected position to advance their hobbyhorses, and personal agendas, whether they are relevant to the body they serve or not.
    In Rapid City a few years ago we had Bill Clayton as a city councilman that used his position to share his hate of President Obama, he was nearly recalled and decided not to run for re-election.
    The problem with these type candidates is that they take away from the duties and responsibilities they should be doing, like higher teacher pay, and rail about Jackley, Mette, etc.

  46. tara volesky 2015-04-22 17:46

    Lynn, what hobbyhorses and personal agenda are you talking about?

  47. tara volesky 2015-04-22 17:52

    I meant that question should be addressed to Roger.

  48. Les 2015-04-22 17:54

    “””The problem with these type candidates is that they take away from the duties like higher teacher pay, and rail about Jackley, Mette, etc.””” if I’m reading you right, Roger, teacher pay is more important than Richard Mette being paid to rape young native kids?

    Yes, Lynn. More anger, less change.

  49. Lynn 2015-04-22 18:03


    What? Anger? Care to explain? Sorry not into the cryptic today.

  50. Roger Cornelius 2015-04-22 18:03


    Is it fair to compare the Mette rape and ICWA violations to teacher pay?

    School boards have the authority to do something about teacher pay, they have no authority to do anything about the Mette rape scandal or Indian children being taken from their homes illegally.

  51. Roger Cornelius 2015-04-22 18:07


    Read anyone of your posts and you should recognize your hobbyhorses and agenda.

    We started off talking about Bosworth’s campaign being broke and you are attempting to turn the discussion into a campaign for the Mitchell School Board.

    Yes, a gong would be a bad idea because a bunch of you libbies would gong at me when I beat you with logic or when I enrage Mr. H by pointing out his French math.

    As to young Dr. Boz, she needs to pay the piper.

  53. Lynn 2015-04-22 18:23


    “Annette will go to jail for 24 years” = Drama and is not reality and you know that.

    Annette Bosworth alone is responsible for her actions and will face the consequences. She clearly demonstrated she was unfit for office. Just let the Justice system deal with it, Annette should take responsibility, learn from her mistakes and move on with her life.

    You and Sibby are simply unfit to hold any public office and the voters of Mitchell will once again demonstrate that. I’ll exercise my civic duty and vote with the majority there. Both of you should accept the results and not play victims.

  54. grudznick 2015-04-22 18:29

    I believe Mr. Sibby would be better suited for the legislatures than his local school board. Imagine the entertainment.

  55. tara volesky 2015-04-22 18:37

    As a school board candidate, I think it is important to educate the public about the political cronyism that takes place in SD concerning education. Children are the future and they need to be able to express themselves without worrying about being marginalized. We can learn a lot from students and they need to feel part of the process. Teachers also need to be able to speak out and say how they feel about Common Core, testing, teacher moral etc. I think it needs to be addressed why teachers are paid 51st while administrators are 24th. It would be nice to hear Mr. Sibson’s opinion on some of these topics, but DFP is not free.

  56. tara volesky 2015-04-22 18:48

    Lynn, I am perfectly fine if I don’t win. The majority of the people have know idea what is going on and they quit caring a long time ago. It isn’t bad enough for them to make a change. All I can do is bring out the facts and then let the chips fall where they may. The Oligarchy gets their FAC while the HS keeps deteriorating and the grade schools keep overflowing. Good teachers are not hired because they want to save a few bucks. Common Core and testing is not discussed. Rod Hall is the expert when it comes to education but Cory won’t print his letter. So Cory are you trying to protect Joe Graves? Oh well the MDR no longer is the watchdog for the people either.

  57. Les 2015-04-22 21:45

    “””Is it fair to compare the Mette rape and ICWA violations to teacher pay?””” No it is not, Roger. Do you really think our education system will change while we have state policy that allows a Mette, an EB5, the darkness of our Revenue Dept, a SOS office run for political protection, ICWA violations that should net jail time for many……….

    Isn’t it about time we have more folks asking questions however odd some of those questions might be?

    I didn’t think I was being cryptic speaking to you on anger when I hear you are so angry you are leaving the state, Lynn. What needs to change?

  58. grudznick 2015-04-22 21:48

    Ms. Lynn is not really leaving the state. And that’s OK.
    The young doctor Bosworth is probably who needs to leave the state.

  59. Joe K 2015-04-23 01:01

    Whoa, whoa, whoa Tara. Students need to be “educated on political cronyism that takes place in SD concerning education???” That statement alone shows how unfit for office you are. Students need to be educated on the basic subjects Math, science, Social studies, and English – throw in some alternative classes that meet their interests, and hope they perform well on their sat/act tests.

    Teaching them about the “political cronyism in SD” has no place in any public school. By the time they graduate, they should be free thinking adults that can form their own opinions on what is “cronyism”, and what is right or wrong. No teacher in public education should be able to define that, an pass it on to their students. Trying to politicize students in a public school should not be tolerated, and allowed. I could only hope that a teacher that would attempt this would be dismissed as quickly as possible.

  60. Joe K 2015-04-23 01:07

    My apologies Tara, I read that incorrectly. I thought you were referring to students, but as I re-read your comment, you were referring to the public. My bad. Disregard my previous comment, and if possible Cory, please remove.

  61. Lynn 2015-04-23 04:31


    ” I didn’t think I was being cryptic speaking to you on anger when I hear you are so angry you are leaving the state, Lynn. What needs to change? ” “so angry”?

    Not so much anger but building frustration for the past couple of years. There are pros and cons wherever one lives and the cons of living in South Dakota have reached the point at least for me where it’s not worth my time and financial investment to stay here. I see better values and opportunities living elsewhere and at least I’m fortunate to have a few reference points.

    Sacrifices were made when I moved back a few years ago to be closer to family especially as they get older but I’ll still be able to see them and one may move to where I end up at.

    What needs to change? Quite a bit on multiple levels and much of it has been covered here and we are already off topic.

  62. tara volesky 2015-04-23 08:24

    Joe, don’t worry about it. Thank you for correcting yourself. Most people don’t. The problem I see on this blog is you get attacked if you question Cory or don’t agree with him. You also get attacked if you are not a member of the Democrat Party and you question them. I can handle it or I wouldn’t be on here. I have had many private messages that feel the same way but are afraid to say it. I just have a problem with people that are to cowardly to reveal their name while they bash you. I don’t care about ridiculing my ideas but the name calling is expressing bully behavior. We can disagree without demoralizing the person. Thanks. PS, their are many intelligent people with great comments and insight. And with all the criticism I get, I still have been educated reading this blog. Thanks again.

  63. Craig 2015-04-23 08:37


    The majority of the people have know [sic] idea what is going on […]


    I just have a problem with people that are to [sic] cowardly to reveal their name […]

    Ladies and Gentlemen… this is your candidate for Mitchell school board.


    I don’t care about ridiculing my ideas but the name calling is expressing bully behavior. We can disagree without demoralizing the person.

    You mean sort of like calling others “cowardly” in the sentence directly prior to your heartfelt appeal? You’re a hypocrite Tara, but something tells me you’ll find a way of making yet another excuse to avoid the facts and go on a rant about cronyism or how anyone who disagrees with you must be a sexist white male.

  64. tara volesky 2015-04-23 08:49

    Craig, I apologize if you feel I came across as a hypocrite. What I should have said is, It would be nice people to say your full name. And Craig, I am just expressing my opinions. Feel free to disagree with me. Thanks for correcting me on the word cowardly. I will try and be a little more tactful.

  65. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-04-23 08:52

    Tara, you’re not getting attacked for questioning me. I welcome questions and challenges. You’re getting rebutted because you are wrong about the Bosworth case and you try to avoid the real issues by throwing out lots of red herrings.

    I also question the Democratic Party on a regular basis.

  66. Lynn 2015-04-23 09:26


    What difference would it make to have a person’s last name?

    When I feel that someone is unfit for public office that does not mean that they are a bad person outside of public life. They are not qualified to hold public office.

    One former employer of mine is from a prominent Republican family and I have and always will have tremendous respect for them in how they value their employees, their sincere and generous support of the community. Even though I would not hesitate to refer someone to patronize their business if one of them were to run for public office I would most likely vote for a Democrat if that option were available and I was satisfied with that particular candidate. It’s simply a philosophical difference in how to approach governing and not contribute to the issues we already have in South Dakota. See the distinction?

  67. tara volesky 2015-04-23 18:18

    Lynn, I really don’t fit in here. I am a graduate of BYU. I am outside the box. I spent time in Japan and have many friends that are not from SD. It is amazing meeting world leaders and influential players that have defined my perspective on life. When you associate with influential people outside of SD you get a different perspective on life. Sorry, I can’t conform to SD values. I just can’t do the Republican or Democrat scheme, even though I was born and raised in Walworth County, probably the highest Republican county in the state of SD. Just can’t do it. Sorry.

  68. Kirby 2015-07-30 16:49

    I’m finding the accusations against Bosworth to be absurd. Talk about swallowing camels while straining gnats. How many times can a person “not witnessing all signatures” be restated as way above on this thread? How many ways can a mole be made into a mountain?
    Any neophyte can make minuscule mistakes. This nation of leftists regularly and blatantly ignore illegalities of all kinds. Our fed gov’t is rampaging out of control. Illegal aliens swarm our borders, commit crimes, are arrested, and repeatedly released to commit more crimes. IRS fraud, Hilary fraud of many kinds, annnnnnnnnnnnnd a country doctor is slaughtered for the incredibly heinous crime of, uh, well, lesseee – didn’t witness a few signatures. For this she is found guilty of twelve felonies and being sent to prison for over two decades?
    Standard operating procedures for criminals in political positions – Hire legions of people to pour over an opponent’s procedural repertoires in an election that should have incarcerated the crooks who have been in those offices.
    I’ve witnessed for many years the procedures that outright crooks use on the internet to cover their tail ends. Hiring people to make their case with ludicrous and time consuming rhetoric tops the list. I watched it in stock market trading and I have witnessed it amongst the leftists who run for office, make blatantly false or trivial claims against an opponent, and then make not a peep when their allegations are proven wrong. The press is massively bought out by those in power everywhere and they trot along covering up the obvious dirt. Annette hardly qualifies.
    The common tactic is attacking an opponent over a hang nail – They blinked twice when the law clearly says they can only blink once or three times, they stepped on a flower on the court house grounds, and on and on and on. Oh, gawd – hang the doctor because she’s pretty! Are her fingernails the wrong length? You mean you didn’t measure her nails?
    Divert attention from the major crime and then make horrendous racket over nothing. I have truly scoured this thread trying to find sufficient excuse for destroying an entire family living a life of great integrity and their trying to address a political problem at the state level by running the mother/doctor/wife for office.
    Career politicians repeatedly commit terrible crimes while press, crooks, and leftists ignore it all. Now we’re suddenly strident because a country doctor dared to run for office, try to correct some serious state political problems, and then hit a trip wire attached to a butterfly.
    Oh, “She broke the law!!”. Oh, my, how suddenly we’re concerned with the law when it’s been trampled all over with impunity for decades.
    You will take note that I didn’t include my last name. I take the same precaution when making public comments about ISIS, the drug cartels, the Mafia, and so on.

  69. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-08-01 07:13

    Here’s another great example of how Bosworth “supporters” use her as a vessel for all of their vague partisan frustrations. Notice that Kirby doesn’t address any of the specifics of the issue here in South Dakota; he just rants on, piling non-specific phrases together that probably make him think he sounds his favorite talk-radio gabber in his head but don’t help us understand the facts or the law. Notice he doesn’t even address the specific matter of this post, the end of Bosworth’s campaign finance scam (come on, Kirby, do you really think she was running for Senate? Do you really think she did anything to raise her vote count above 5.75%? Why do think that hardly any of her money came from the informed South Dakota public and that nearly all of it came from Base Connect’s devious mailing list of vulnerable retirees?

    Kirby, the Bosworth issue isn’t some great clash of leftists and rightists. There is no real ideological angle to the Bosworth story, because she has no ideology, at least none that fits in your standard boxes. The only way we might fit ideology into this story is by talking about how Bosworth switched from a vague Democrat to pretending to be a Republican because Base Connect showed her that saying she was fighting Obama was a surer path to financial success.

    Bosworth also isn’t a “country doctor”. You play to the image without looking at the facts. Her office was in Sioux Falls, the largest city in the state. She interned in a city hospital in Utah. By using the phrase “country doctor,” you fall for the marketing but ignore reality.

    In saying that breaking the law is trivial, Kirby facilitates Bosworth’s narcissistic defense, that laws shouldn’t apply to her. It’s just like speeding tickets: when the HP pulls you over for going 65 in a 55, you can cry all you want about the people you saw passing you earlier, but the facts remain: you were doing 65, the says you shouldn’t break 55, and you’re getting a ticket.

    And Kirby, where in any of the discussion do you get the impression that I’m attacking Bosworth because of her looks? Your comment on your perception of her appearance says more about your motivation than mine.

  70. Kirby 2015-08-01 10:02

    Vague? I think not. You got my points. Nebulous attacks against Bosworth seem to be ya’all’s forte. Making mountains out of molehills, swallowing camels (her allegations against opponent) while driveling on about some non-visual horror (gasp!) on a few signatures. Absolutely incredulous that someone as totally unqualified (Obama) for office in these days of political free for alls gets a total pass on every illegality on the books while a neophyte trying to right some wrongs gets poured over with a magnifying glass.

    Your pseudo righteous indignation falls flat on its face. I’m unimpressed. I have hangnails that cross more boundary lines of the law.

    And, for the record, I’m not making this a “leftist vs rightist” issue. My mention of this arena is merely for an example of the askew nature of politics today.

    If the growing cess pools of general politics don’t move you how in the name of God does Bosworth hit your radar? You’re laughable.

  71. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-08-01 11:05

    Kirby, check your e-mail. I want to know you’re a real dude and not a Bosworth sockpuppet. We’ve had those.

    You’re still vague, focusing more on personal insult and bombast than any substantive critique of Bosworth’s financial scheme (again, did you read the original post?) or of the facts behind the investigation and prosecution of her violations of South Dakota law.

    Your “leftist” insertions still make no sense. How do they help us understand the issue, let alone support your apparent smokescreen effort to portray Annette Bosworth as a “pretty” “country doctor” who made a simple, largely irrelevant mistake? Why use the word, which you apparently consider not just an insult but a way to win an argument, other than as a false club to wage a distracting ad hominem attack instead of addressing the facts of the issue?

    And please, Kirby, if you can stop laughing at the hilarity of your own words, review the full body of my blogging before you continue to make the false insinuation that I haven’t written about a variety of other topics from the “cess pool” of general politics in South Dakota.

  72. Kirby 2015-08-01 13:30

  73. Kirby 2015-08-01 13:48

    You need to take up a reading course. I’m far less “vague” than you who make Mount Everests out of mole hills for political assassination purposes.

    And, again, I never said you lacked any credentials past or present. My comment is on the smokescreen that hides a politician’s horrendous abuses of power by making a federal case out of a hangnail in his opponent. Personally, after observing the assassination attempts here on this board, I couldn’t care less about your past writings. I smell an opportunist.

    Bosworth having attempted a “financial scheme” is no more true than any other politician running for office. Her family has lost everything. You’re grasping at straws.

    Lastly, I never made any attempt to single you out from the other comments on Bosworth in my first post. However, if you feel guilty … .

  74. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-08-01 14:09

    Jesus, Kirby, now you’re just going to bore us all weekend.

    Reading course? You’re the one throwing words around without meaning.

    “Federal case”? Neither Bosworth’s felony prosecution nor her hearing to revoke her medical license yesterday took place in federal court.

    “Opportunist”? What opportunity do I gain by subjecting myself to personal attacks from a Senate candidate with two million dollars in the bank? The only opportunity I sought was to protect the integrity of the South Dakota petition process and ballot. The petition challenge I coordinated cost a lot of time, money, and effort. It did not succeed in keeping Bosworth from sullying the ballot and taking advantage of vulnerable retirees nationwide with her deceptive campaign fundraising, but it did lead to the investigation and criminal conviction.

    Bosworth’s “financial scheme” was really of a different character from that of many other politicians running for office. I can point to many Republican politicians in South Dakota with whom I have vigorous policy disagreements but whom I can respect as honest Republicans and members of their community who do not commit the kind of abuses that Annette Bosworth did of the public trust. That’s why the end of the flow of campaign funds to her committee was a significant, newsworthy event.

    “assassination attempts”? Come on, use language appropriately. You tell me to read carefully, but then you throw hyperbolic words to distract from the real issue.

    Say whatever you want about any other specific politician. But none of that commentary would change the fact that Annette Bosworth cashed in on vulnerable, under-informed donors from out of state an committed felonies to get on the South Dakota ballot and affirm her candidate status to increase her fundraising potential.

  75. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-08-01 14:09

    [And you still need to answer your e-mail, Kirby.]

  76. Owen 2015-08-01 14:11

    Tara, excuse me Kirby, Bosworth brought this on herself. simple as that

  77. Roger Cornelius 2015-08-01 14:41


    Tara did say on Facebook that she had to go to neighbor’s house to read Dakota Free Press.

    I’ll be waiting for “Kirby” the nameless troll over on the new thread about felon Bosworth.

  78. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-08-01 14:43

    Oh, almost missed it: nothing about my indignation is pseudo. My indignation is always real and usually righteous. :-D

  79. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-08-01 14:48

    And dang it, now I can’t stop: “vague” doesn’t mean I don’t get where you’re coming from. “Vague” here means you don’t lodge any specific examples of any specific politicians. You don’t address any specifics about Bosworth’s situation. You could issue this rant in response to pretty much any political discussion you don’t like: “Why are you meatheads wasting your breath on this topic when there are so many other bad things to talk about?” Perhaps I should have used the word “generic” instead of “vague.”

    Now, on to that other thread… assuming Kirby is really interested in finding out details and not just looking to throw punches.

  80. Kirby 2015-08-01 21:18

    Oh, good grief! “Federal case” is an old expression which means something along the same lines as making a “mountain out of a mole hill”.

    I’m assuming you’re not playing obtuse over why Bosworth ran for office in the first place? You just wandered in willy-nilly and noticed this atrocious woman savagely attacking the voting process? A country doctor with a thriving practice, three sons, and a husband just went all rabid one day and decided to bake up a phony scheme to get rich off po’ ol’ retirees?

    Wow! That puts her right up there with those ISIS guys. Yeah, go get her that bad ol’ lady. Probably related to Bonnie of Bonnie and Clyde fame.

    I’ve been purposely avoiding mentioning the reason “Bonnie” ran for office as I’ve assumed good folk like yourselves looking out for the defenseless seniors of the nation are surely well informed on her reasons – ? I’ve received well documented letters from her about the efforts her opponent was going to to cover up some “illegal activities”. But, now I understand there is something much more nefarious going on than a politician who has been carrying on with a cover-up on the state level concerning another cohort’s behaviors with children. Truly, I see the light now. Certainly, making a bogus claim to have witnessed some signatures is quite the horror in comparison.

    I’ve been following the details of hatchet woman, Boswell for some time. Other than running over an occasional bunny on one of her country roads, I wasn’t aware of this scheme baked up while delivering babies, treating broken bones, and comforting the dying to scam the nation.

    I will truly sleep much better at night knowing the “Mod Squad” is hard at work incarcerating country doctors on the lam from uh, telling a little fib.

    I will never see my own doctors in anything less than a suspicious eye from now on.

    A country doctor tried in her bumbling neophyte fashion to run for office and right some wrongs. The scenario isn’t at all unheard of. Crooked politicians with years and decades of experience in the machinations of running for office, millions of dollars, the judiciary, and media all at their disposal don’t take lightly some inexperienced woman daring to challenge and throw light on their dirty dealings. Consequently, I find it very easy to doubt that “facts” and “figures” can’t be baked up to throw mud on someone.

    I have read very widely for over half a century, so political concoctions baked up to throw a hound off the scent are nothing new to me. Sometimes one has to depend on the smell. I get tired of wasting time on smelly figures. I find it hard to believe – again – that a country doctor that I have been following for some time baked up this “scheme”. Scum bag, dirty politicians – now that’s no stretch at all. They have no trouble at all with all their resources putting together the most far-fetched stories around. You know how it is – Snow White was really the evil witch and not the other way around.

    I’ve watched reams of internet pages fly by for days and weeks on end over the whole “global warming” hysteria supporting both sides with all kinds of “facts” and “figures” so you will excuse me if I don’t always “snap to” when someone tells me to waste hours of time on something that stinks to begin with. I’ve looked at some of the “data” presented on Dr. Bosworth and see nothing any different from any other case presented to the public. I smell a rotting corpse coming from all over the nation as political rats in power plunder and destroy this nation. Half a century of reading sometimes gives one a sense of smell that can override books of baked up data. Good people get destroyed every day while the stench of a rotting media, bought out/blackmailed judiciary, and political fat cats sit back, leer, rake in the cash, and go on polluting the landscape. Along the way, they collect legions of people who manipulate with no sense of conscience whatsoever.

    Anybody in your position who knew they had this person dead to rights wouldn’t waste the time on a forum. If this is a fight over a dead horse, why do you waste your time? There’s always controversy over any judicial decision. If you’re right, quit wasting your time. Or is it important to keep the lid on this thing? Why?

  81. larry kurtz 2015-08-01 21:27

    ‘Kirby’ makes a good point: Boz is a SDGOP plant, dig it or don’t.

  82. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-08-01 21:32

    Kirby, Kirby, Kirby: one moment you say I’m not being exact enough in my reading, the next you say I should just let you use words whatever way you want. And you still use the phrase “country doctor”, which is entirely inaccurate. “Thriving practice” is an exaggeration at best. Ugh—wake me up when you’ve read some facts on the Bosworth case and are ready to talk specifics.

  83. Roger Cornelius 2015-08-01 21:46

    Prior to today’s post, I believe this was Cory’s last post on Boworth, the date of the post was April 21,2015. If anyone revived this subject it was you, Kirby.

    Sioux Falls is considered a city, Bosworth is not a poor country doctor, I’d hate to see what you would call a country doctor if ever met one.

    It is obvious that Kirby doesn’t believe in election laws nor does he respect our judicial system. It was a jury of 12 of her peers that agreed she was guilty of election fraud, it was not Cory that pronounced that guilt.

    Kirby rants and raves about corruption everywhere he looks, but refuses to acknowledge that Bosworth is but one of those republicans that is corrupt She promised to fight corruption and expose it to us all, but all she ever did was create a Facebook page and became one of the corrupt herself.
    Bosworth at no time ever offered policy positions on her campaign, instead she threw out daily irrelevant memes praising Jesus, asking for money, and praising Jesus.
    If I understand Kirby correctly, he wants us all to concentrate on climate change, President Obama, or whatever else pops into his head at the moment in an effort to justify Bosworth’s criminal actions.
    Kirby seems to think that because Bosworth is a pretty woman “country doctor” she should be held to lesser standard of the law. Our elections laws are written for a reason, and that is to hold politicians accountable, Bosworth failed the first test.
    You can clutter this post with every tea party slogan or meme you can think of Kirby, but that does change the fact that Bosworth has been found guilty of election fraud and is now paying the consequences for her actions.

  84. Lynn 2015-08-01 21:51

    Is Kirby even a resident of South Dakota or one of those on the Bosworth campaign Base Connect e-mail list?

  85. lorahubbel 2015-08-01 23:15

    Kirby really makes you look filthy, Cory. Wear it.

  86. Roger Cornelius 2015-08-01 23:32

    John McCain’s Trump’s “Crazies” are infesting Dakota Free Press.

    I see that Tara has posted on Sibby Online and the Powers Dump Site a call for them to post the most recent edition of KELO’s “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not”

  87. Kirby 2015-08-02 00:26

    “Obvious Kirby doesn’t believe in election laws” – More to the point you don’t believe in objective reading or logical thought. I make the case over and over of the triviality of the Bosworth reign of terror and crime. Politicians all over the country including the president of the United States trample all over the entire spectrum of the law every day – not to mention the Constitution of the United States with absolute impunity, no alarm bells sounding, to the absolute silence of the press, Congress, and everywhere else, but here we’re making a hangnail into a serious felony.

    Flash America!! There’s someone who cares about the law! Incredulous as it may sound, it is actually reported one Dr. Bosworth wife, doctor, and mother of three boys has been called to account for her reign of terror in an election in Hobokum, South Dakota. Medals are being passed and trophies given to those who bravely brought to light this dangerous woman’s crime spree.

    I think the Congressional Medal of Honor is called for here.

    Ok, feel better? You’re an uncompromising hero. Way ta go guy!

    I could actually get into this. I observed just the other day a grandmother walking into a post office, buying a stamp, and putting it UPSIDE DOWN on the envelope – in full view of her little granddaughter. (Oh, the horror, the injustice – the child will be ruined for life.)

  88. Kirby 2015-08-02 00:34

    P.S. – Bosworth asked for money because running a campaign as well as fighting a criminal mud slinger costs MONEY. Court costs fighting wealthy and corrupt politicians tend to re-focus one’s attention beyond the every day tasks of attending to one’s political office. But then that’s all part of the scam – redirect and bury an honest person’s devotion to their job with time consuming and costly attacks.

  89. caheidelberger Post author | 2015-08-02 08:20

    “It is actually reported…”—Kirby, ever hear of citing your sources? See, you’re not giving us any specifics. You’re just playing talk-radio karaoke, spouting whatever words you think sound good, without regard for fact or evidence.

    Here’s how Kirby’s tactics work. I can cite a whole stream of facts about Annette Bosworth and Chad Haber:

    1. Haber cheats Christine Dearing out of $200K:
    2. Bosworth was a terrible candidate, using her campaign funds far less efficiently and effectively than any other GOP Senate candidate in South Dakota:
    3. Bosworth broke the law on her nominating petition:
    4. Bosworth lost campaign staff because of unethical behavior within her campaign:
    5. The non-profit operating out of the same in-town building as Bosworth’s in-town clinic cheated employees on wages:
    6. Chad Haber didn’t pay all of his taxes in Utah
    7. Bosworth and Haber promoted raffles that never held drawings and never voluntarily refunded customers:
    8. Bosworth tried to frame her own employees for stealing raffle records:
    9. The Attorney General’s office had to apply pressure to get Haber and Bosworth to refund some of their stiffed ticketholders:
    10. Chad Haber falsely accused me of criminal activity:
    11. Chad Haber directed 100X, a house-flipping Ponzi scheme that sent multiple participants to federal prison:
    12. When Dr. Bosworth worked at the largest hospital in the largest city in South Dakota, she got in trouble for a variety of unprofessional and insubordinate actions, including responding a criticism of her unprofessional clothing by tearing off her blouse and parading through the facility in her bra:
    13. Bosworth cannot articulate any coherent political ideology or policy:
    14. Bosworth originally hired Democratic consultant Steve Hildebrand to coach her on running for office and voiced to him numerous seemingly liberal positions, but then realized she could make more money using conservative Republican boilerplate in letters sent to Base Connect’s mailing list; she thus ran without any genuine, committed ideology… and without paying Hildebrand:

    I can cite the entire record of facts and documents demonstrating that Bosworth and her husband have orchestrated a variety of frauds, scams, and outright crimes on a variety of people, including thousands of campaign donors, but Kirby can ignore them all, tell stories, and say, “She’s a country doctor with children! Other people do much worse things! I’m noble, and you suck!”

    Lora, those cheap, evasive tactics from Kirby make me look honest, detailed, and logical. Kirby is the kid who shows up for the extemp round with no evidence and thus spins tales off the top of his head. I’m the guy who shows up with evidence and just needs to read the cards to make the point.
