The Saudi Prince of South Dakota needs to go

As I posted about on January 2, there is a little trouble in the SD GOP;

A group of Fall River Republicans are demanding that Dan Lederman resign as chairman of the South Dakota Republican Party due to his lobbying work for Saudi Arabia.

The Fall River County Republicans’ Central Committee unanimously approved a resolution on Tuesday night alleging that Lederman has a conflict of interest between his role leading the state Republican Party and his work lobbying “against American citizens on behalf of a foreign government.”

The resolution has been sent to the party’s State Central Committee for consideration.

I heard about this on January 2, when I posted about it. But as I understand it, Fall River is NOT the only county organization drafting letters. I have heard about at least 3 counties if not more. This will be interesting to see how this plays out.

The west river hating on muslims and jews, no I take that back, it probably has more to do with a chairperson from the I-29 corridor in power.

Let’s not forget, Thune, Daugaard, and Rounds all publicly supported Lederman’s opponent a few years ago, and my guess is, that behind the scenes things are still as rocky within the SDGOP as an anglo royal family.

Don’t wait for the Dakotawarcampus to report this, however, because like FOX, they would rather talk about too many wild black bears in New Jersey or Pizzagate.

( – and Woodstock adds: “What about fireworks at Mt. Rushmore?”….”That’s kind of big news, too”…..”Should be able to fill some of a three hour local news slot with that”….)

Seriously, does Lederman even need his chair job? According to pernicious pug Pat Powers nobody else wants it or is qualified.
