GAB Discusses Noem Ethics Complaints, Requests More Info on at Least One

Stephen Groves sends us thin tea leaves from yesterday’s meeting of the Government Accountability Board. The GAB had three complaints in its hands: one forwarded by killer Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg concerning Governor Kristi Noem’s misuse of the state airplane for political purposes, another forwarded from Ravnsborg concerning Governor Kristi Noem’s nepotistic intervention in her daughter’s real estate appraiser certification, and a third about who-knows-whom for doing who-knows-what.

No, really, that’s all we know. The GAB has to keep all of its complaints secret until and unless it finds someone needs a hearing. All Groves can tell us is that, after nearly an hour of closed-door confab, “the four retired judges on the board dismissed one of the complaints, but did not make public which one. It is sending the other two complaints back to the people who made them with requests for more information.”

So, three complaints, at least two about Noem (for all we know, the third one could be about her, too), only one dismissed—that means at least one complaint about Noem remains active.

    Relax, Dear Readers. We all know nothing shall impede Her Majesty Kristi Lynn, the Snow Queen from Aberdeen and God Fearing Christian’s elevation to higher offices.
    What, some lame-a** judge might scowl at her?

    The who-knows-when complaint is probably about somebody really entrenched in the trenches of government. That’s why it is secret.

    Kristi is looking more and more butch, every day.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that, per se.

    Being latent and attacking your own team IS disgustingly neurotic, though.

    Indeed, Mr. Lansing. The butch look, sported once by some other female bloggers here, is a good look on Ms. Noem.
    I do not care for the pompadour look, however. She should not sport that coif again, in grudznick’s opinion.

    Lucky for grudznick, looks don’t matter much.

    Bashing vegans on Tuesday and requesting soybean based tires on state vehicles on Wednesday are a contradiction a savvy politician wouldn’t get caught up in.

    She has no understanding of what a nationwide liberal boycott of her little domain would do to her career.

    Well Noem has no understanding of Jefferson’s estate tax, his proudest achievement. All the pubs use the death tax refrain. Its just sad. They all wanna be aristocracy.
