News Growl follows up on Deb Peters

Oh the web the SD GOP likes to weave;

What is more, the closing date for applications was November 9th – just three days after Peters won her election.

For her account of events to make sense Peters must therefore have three highly eventful days between November 6th-9th: Over a 72 hour period she must have discovered a well-publicized job she was unaware of, made a sudden decision to not take the seat she had just won an election for, and then rushed an application for a position she lacked some of the qualifications for as listed in the ad (such as a degree in marketing, communications, or similar field).

Meanwhile, the people of District 9 are preparing for two years of representation in the State House by a politician they did not elect. Or as Scott L. Ehrisman wrote in his South Dacola blog: “Once again a fake incumbent will be appointed by a Republican elect governor.”

Seems like a busy 3 days, even for a savvy Gipper like Peters.

I think you have a misspelling of gravy sipper, not savvy gipper. But I am sure you are not done with the young moon-pie faced Ms. Peters, Mr. DaCola. Gravy sipper, sir

An initiative should be placed on the 2020 ballot, which calls for a special election whenever there is a vacant seat in the House of Lords…. Fore, such an idea would foster an opportunity for the masses to acquire peerage equal to the chosen…

Come to think of it, with Peters resignation, that will mean that two of the three current legislators from District 9 will have begun their incumbency as ones who were appointed and not elected. This is quite handy for the GOP, is it not? Especially, when you recognize, that District 9 is the most competitive legislative district in Minnehaha County and one of the most competitive in the state.

My guess is, that the GOP spin on all of this, however, will be, that absent this strategy a Clark could be elected; but then what does it say about a political party, when a Clark can once win and represent them, but the party has no overall confidence in other potential candidates?

Big deal. Aren’t all state political types two faced?
