South Dakota War College usefully reports that election denier turned Minnehaha County Auditor Leah Anderson is hiring fellow election denier Mike Mathis to help destroy the integrity of elections in South Dakota’s largest county:
Had an interesting rumor from the field today from a tipster:
Minnehaha County Auditor Anderson has hired Mike Mathis (with SD Canvassing Group) as her new Elections Coordinator. She secured Mike a starting pay two pay classes higher than election previous coordinators.
We’ll be able to confirm this pretty quickly as soon as it rolls through the County Commission so we can compare what the new coordinator is making in comparison to the old one. But the part that’s far more concerning is where Minnehaha County Auditor Leah Anderson is said to be using to tap for her talent.
Mathis… was active in the SD Canvassing group, where in the linked clip he was claiming that he has “no confidence” in the elections [Pat Powers, “Is SD Canvassing Group Being Put in Charge of Minnehaha County’s Elections by Auditor Leah Anderson?” South Dakota War College, 2023.08.30].
Republicans will reap the fruits of electing fruitcakes next year when underqualified Anderson and her fellow conspiracist hires make a botch of counting ballots in the 2024 elections. Are you Republicans ready to repent by working hard for a candidate who’s actually willing and qualified to do the job instead of latching onto the conspiracy theory du jour?
