When will the Sioux Falls Board of Ethics reconvene

Remember a few weeks ago when the BOE met? They still have not reconvened to make a final decision (they must vote in public). In fact, they didn’t even make a decision on when to reconvene, which should have been done in public before escaping out the bathroom windows.

I still have no idea what the complaint is and who it is against. Oh yes, I have my guesses, but since everything was behind closed doors and ‘confidential’ the public has no idea what is going on. This is extremely egregious.

It will be interesting to see if and when they reconvene. My guess is that they will wait until after July 14. Why is that date important? That is when the newly installed council gets sworn in and that new body picks it’s leaders (chair and vice chair). Like I said, not sure if these two issues have anything to do with each other, but trust me, I’m not naive either.

July 14th is also Bastille Day, and like the French, the BOE will most likely go more Vichy, than de Gaulle.

( and Woodstock adds: “Say, speaking of Bastille Day, I am surprised Trump didn’t have a phalanx of tanks heading out of Keystone towards Mt. Rushmore to crush the protesters”… )

Convenient timing, yet again.
A “kangaroo court” is one convened to find someone guilty regardless of evidence presented.
This Ethics Board seems much like any Government, Operations, and Audit Committee (GOAC) assembled by the South Dakota legislature – gathered with the specific intent to absolve the subject of violation / wrongdoing regardless the evidence.
The opposite result of a kangaroo court, but marsupial justice nonetheless.
