Time Trial: Ravnsborg Writes Up Democratic Misconductor in 12 Days; Sleeps on Complaints Against Republican Cops for 213

It took the least-qualified Attorney General in America only twelve days to investigate a Democratic state’s attorney and compile a report that found no criminal wrong-doing but allowed the Governor to make a public splash that likely ends Democrat Aaron McGowan’s political career.

Meanwhile, the Law Enforcement Officers Standards and Training Commission, which the Attorney General mostly appoints and supervises, was asked 213 days ago by a Republican legislator to investigate and revoke the badges of four law enforcement officers, at least three of whom are registered Republicans, who have participated in some pretty well-documented unethical conduct. The LEOSTC has met three times since that legislator filed those four complaints in March, but, according to the record and the complainant (Senator Stace Nelson, who told me so personally), the LEOSTC has not lifted a finger on those complaints (except maybe the tacit middle one flipped in Nelson’s general direction).

Even with four malfeasants and not just one, at Ravnsborg’s rate of work on the McGowan case, he could have written reports for the LEOSTC on all four of Senator Nelson’s complaints in 48 days, less than a quarter of the time that has elapsed without action since Nelson filed his complaints.

    Mr. Nelson carries such little respect and credibility it is no wonder these fellows discount his complaints, for he bleats about something nonstop. It is why he’s the least effective in the legislatures since Mr. Kloucek waddled the halls.

    Grudz, can you show us where lack of respect for the complainer is written into statute or rule as a criterion for taking action on a complaint?
