I have been optimistic for quite awhile that the charges against Nesiba would be dropped;
Sexual contact charges against Democratic legislator and Augustana University professor Reynold Nesiba have been dropped.
The Minnehaha County State’s Attorney’s Office announced Thursday afternoon that further investigation into the allegations against Reynold Nesiba revealed â€œinconsistenciesâ€ in the evidence about the Sept. 26 incident from which the charges stem.
This is something I was made aware of early on, and why I encouraged people to let this play out on it’s own before casting any guilty judgements towards Reynold.
Since I am not privy to all the details of the case, I am not going to share anything.
I will say this though, this seemed to be a hit job by either the SD GOP or the Pay Day lender folks or both. It also seems some people who work for either law enforcement or the courts helped the media to smear Reynold’s reputation. Of course this is all speculation, but very peculiar considering the charges were dropped before it even got to court.
This is why it chaps my hide when people like our governor talk about how people were hoodwinked by IM 22 and that their is no corruption in Pierre. He is either in a total state of denial, flat out lying, or both. I hope Reynold uses his vindication as a lightning rod in the legislature to thin the herd of all the snakes slithering around on the capital floor this legislative session.
