Rep. Lee Schoenbeck (R-5/Watertown) isn’t letting the illegitimi carborund him. Bob Mercer reports that Rep. Schoenbeck has rescinded his resignation promise and will see out the remainder of the 2016 Session:
Before leaving the Capitol on Wednesday, he said he would talk with family and reconsider the decision.
By Friday morning, he had decided he would serve the remaining 10 days of the 2016 legislative session.
“I just never expected to have as many friends and constituents contact me,” Schoenbeck said in a telephone interview.
“I’m going to go back and finish my job. I’m not going to be a member of any caucus,” he continued [Bob Mercer, “Schoenbeck Isn’t Quitting After All,” Pierre Capital Journal, 2016.02.26].
Rep. Schoenbeck has come back in off his ledge; perhaps Majority Leader Brian Gosch will back off from his own hotheadedness and let poor Lee back into caucus.
