An eager reader points out the coincidence of the day:
Governor Kristi Noem’s recently imported senior fantasist and press whacker, Marguerite “Maggie” Seidel, married a gentleman named Jeremy Lippert in 2013. Lippert, like Seidel, is a Beltway critter with Capitol Hill experience. Lippert worked for Colorado Congressman Mike Coffman, then worked for Ben Carson at Housing and Urban Development.
The Department of Social Services has hired a lawyer named Jeremy Lippert for $80,000 a year.
If this Jeremy Lippert is that Jeremy Lippert, the happy Beltway transplants are jointly making over $220,000 for their service to the taxpayers of South Dakota.
There—who says you can’t move to South Dakota and make good money?
Obviously, kristi has found a solution for our “brain drain.”
You can take COVID Kristi out of the Beltway, but you can’t take the Beltway out of COVID Kristi. What’s next? Is she going to rename the Missouri River to the Potomac River?
What happened to Republican politicians who trashed D.C. as the root of all evil instead of replanting it in Pierre? And the other shoe that’s going to drop is these people are not going to take a pay cut to work in Pierre. Eventually we’ll find out they rarely show up at work and have found other means to supplement their paltry paychecks. As we’ve seen with other administrations, it’s a matter of filling your pockets because they let you.
My state rep is Todd Lippert, a Democrat and a UCC rev. I tend to doubt he is related to Jeremy, SD’s latest grifter.
