Noem takes money from Foreign Oil Company for her party

Well there is one thing Kristi has learned in DC, if someone is writing you a check, just cash it, don’t worry about conflicts;

Organizers of South Dakota Gov.-elect Kristi Noem’s inaugural celebration have raised at least $162,500 from roughly 30 large donors including major health systems, big energy companies and state industry groups.

Top-tier donations to the city of Pierre’s inaugural committee include $12,500 from Avera Health, $10,000 from biofuels producer POET and $10,000 from Keystone XL oil pipeline developer TransCanada.

Am I the only one that finds it ironic she takes money from a tar sands oil company and in the same breath a donation from an ethanol company. I guess she is trying to cover both bases. And while I write this I am watching a tribal member do the opening prayer in Lakota at her inauguration. The trifecta!

I also find it a little ironic that she can whip up $162K in donations with a wink of the eye, but can’t scrape together $20K for her personal security at a private fundraising event in Sioux Falls. It’s going to be a rough 4 years folks. If you think Janks and Rounds were corrupt, you have another thing coming.

How does Avera Health have $12,500 to give to an inaugural committee? Isn’t that just $12,500 too much, that they charged to their patients?

I just looked up her salary and was surprised to see her daughter Kennedy has already gotten a bump in her salary from what she was making last month. $50K for a fresh grad – she must be really good.

Kennedy Noem had better hope that her mother doesn’t shutdown State government, too, just so she can emulate her orange boyfriend.
