Republican leaders Langer, Greenfield admonished for intoxication

Am I the only one who sees the obvious hypocrisy in all of this?

The panel Friday voted 9-0 to admonish Langer and Greenfield for their behavior and cautioned them against future appearances at the Capitol when their sobriety could be questioned.

Cory goes into more detail than I care to. This is absolutely disgusting. While our state is in the middle of a pandemic and eventually a economic crisis, on veto day these two decide to get drunk on recess when they know they will have to return for business later. I would never judge any elected official who wants to throw a few back after a hard day’s work, but the day’s work hadn’t finished yet. These two should have been thrown out of the legislature yesterday on their heads, and if they had any courage or sense left in them after this, they should do the honorable thing and both resign on Monday.

Remember just a few short months ago when the Governor’s office and AG decided to investigate a certain State’s Attorney for similar allegations which lead to him resigning his post. What was the difference between the two cases? He was a Democrat and these two f’ing clowns were Republicans. The majority party has been breaking rules for decades in this state, why start punishing them now?

It’s very sad to see a House of Lords legislature turn itself into a hillbilly legislature. But nothing lasts forever.

( and Woodstock adds: “Yah, but at least a hillbilly one can relate to more people”…. “And now I know why most legislators end the day in Ft. Pierre”…. )

I’ll run for legislature if it’s all day happy hours. Can I put stripper ones on expenses. During Huether an assistant city attorney was arrested for DWI and wasn’t fired.

They should be stripped of their leadership positions. They’ve proven incapable of leading.

Frankly, they should both resign. Spend that time they would normally be sucking up to lobbyists to seek the treatment they so desperately need. Then go do something more productive with their lives.

Pierre is a form of incarceration. Anybody who endures time there should drink. Now, everything’s closed because of the virus. This year Lobbyists should hand out Ecstacy and sponsor a Rave. It’s refreshing that 2 republicans party like democrats.

You should go over and check out the comments at the war college. They are trying to downplay this and make it seem like it is a witch hunt. They have no problem with what these two Senators and our Lt Governor did. It’s amazing how much they are willing to cover for their party members to hold onto power.
