Keep quiet about corruption, get a promotion—that’s the South Dakota way!
Governor Kristi Noem announced today that she is promoting Rep. Kyle Schoenfish to take the Senate seat vacated by Stace Nelson. With this appointment, District 19 goes from being represented by one of the most bombastic opponents of corruption in state government to being represented by a colorless tool of the one-party regime with poor communication skills and more than one connection to bad financial behavior in our fair state. Given his lack of independent merits, Senator Schoenfish will surely be a good soldier for his matron, Her Highness the Snow Queen—yes, ma’am!
Noem also appointed Marty Overweg of New Holland to fill Schoenfish’s seat in the House. Overweg at least looks interesting….
When he’s not riding his Harley, Overweg runs Overweg Feed and Wagner Feed Supply.
