Meet the new boss same as the old boss (H/T – GP)

SKrebs wouldn’t know how to be nonpartisan if it came up to her as a makeup counter attendant and applied the reality. She is an ambitious person who only wants power for herself, family and those who pay, ALEC. Her husband was a nice enough news reader for the second place Sioux Falls TV station who now uses his connections and power to return Marion M. Rounds back to a front row power seat. Shantel is just part of the PG13 program.

Shantel does not believe in the freedoms she espouses. She has proved this in everything she has done in her public and private work (former shoe salesperson). Just the way she blew off the courthouse petition gatherers and let those who witnessed, she did not believe in the petition process.

Krebs is a cog in the wheel of ALEC puppet power system. She will only do what Jason Gant could not get done for them. There must be a complete control system for all positions of responsibility in Pierre and she will make sure Gant’s ALEC plans are carried out.

Montgomery did a good job of outlining why South Dakotans should be afraid of Shantel.

  • The statement reported “she would “do whatever it takes” to help Republicans win every single statewide office on the ballot next year, include secretary of state“ says it all when she is in office.
  • How much will her husband and his personal connections to power assist in her effort.
  • Opposes early-voting sites to three other reservation and probably any other place where the GOP majority could be “harmed”.
  • Also note, she went to the former ALEC SOS, Chris Nelson, to get his advice. Doesn’t his make you warm and cozy?

Montgomery also throws more into the pot with this post Nelson hits Gant’s performance.  Shantel is getting advice from Nelson as Nelson dumps on Gant. Just remember, Nelson was SOS with control over the Help America Vote Act $9 million fund. He did nothing to help the Native American citizens to vote. Nelson was also SOS during the Lake Andes Native American voter harassment program to scare them away from voting for Daschle.

So Krebs promises to be nonpartisan, sure she will. You betcha,  just like Gant and Nelson…

Every time I hear the name Krebs I can’t help but think of this great story from 2004. If you think shantel is gonna fix what ails voter suppression, you got another think coming. Long read, but really good stuff.

If not this young Ms. Krebs, then who?

Poly, thanks for the link. I was trying to find the rest of the details in the deep recesses of my brain. The slime of Mitch Krebs and a Sioux Falls lawyer named Jon K. Lauck come back to haunt us again… Thanks!

For years I considered KSFY the Sioux Falls version of Fox News. Perhaps that has changed now. MOST of the GOP/KSFY cast of characters and connections are now gone. When it comes to politics and KSFY I just change the channel. May be unfair, but history is history.

Maybe she can find some classy wingnuts out in Pierre rich enough to buy her old boots.

Pathetic, crass and borderline unconstitutional:

“ I am a Christian, Conservative, and a Republican. You can’t be the third unless you are the first two.” Thank you Joel Rosenthal:

Such xenophobic logic has no place in our political debate. Taken on its face, since Christ was a Jew, would he not meet the Nelson Republican Litmus Test? – And be denied to be a Republican?

Boohoo – here we go again. And the same problem remains – so far – no one is running against her, or from my knowledge, is even talking about it.

That’s what is so sad Karma, while the Dems may or may not have a candidate, they refuse to talk about the total incompetence of the GOP SOS. It’s like the SD Dem party is ran by a bunch of jackasses.

#9 Testor15 on 09.23.13 at 5:59 pm

Not jackasses, more like dumbasses

I quite watching KELO several years ago. I don’t like their reporters. After Hemmingson and Lund left, it isn’t the same. At this time on KSFY, I like Shawn, Phil, and Courtney. Nancy is OK, and I’m having a hard time getting used to Paige. I watch the news on KDLT when there is sporting events keeping the news off the other two channels. My big complaint is with Angela and Paige is that a lot of the time they don’t dress professionally. If the men have to wear suits, why shouldn’t the women cover their shoulders?

#11 grudznick on 09.24.13 at 8:42 pm

The women should be required to show toned arms, but if they get a wobbler in there then they need to cover the shoulders. I’m just sayin…but I think the station management knows the right thing to do.

Hate on me for saying it but you know I speak the truth.

#12 Detroit Lewis on 09.24.13 at 11:00 pm

I only have an opinion about Paige and Keneke thru waiting on them. Paige thinks she all that and a bag of chips, not impressed. But I have waited on Angela several times, and she is always gracious and polite, and a great tipper.

All them sugary wide eyed KELO people talk at their camera like they are trying to lure a cat into a box to go to the vet.
