The ‘Unofficial’ Mayoral Incumbent has raised over $52K

For a guy who hasn’t made an official announcement, some wonder why TenHaken has raised so much money.

TenHakens July 6, 2021 Finance report

I guess O’ Shucksberg and Heels have some money laying around to.

Maybe Paul is waiting to break $100K before he officially announces so he knows for sure the super rich in town still support him and cruise control government

43% of the itemized money comes from Taupeville, while the other 13 Zip Codes in town share the other 57%. Imagine that. For those of you not familiar with Taupeville, it’s where ballot drop-off boxes are allowed and Iowa law does not apply.

PAC monies are not specific to any one office.

Maybe O’Shucksberg and Heels could get together and have a party for all the developers and employers who they have helped? Or is O’Shucksberg looking at doing nothing for another 4 years by having O’Shucksberg storm troopers take over the City Council chambers claiming he is not term limited?

Maybe Heels needs to wear her short skirts again to get attention she so greatly deserves?

I would not put it past him to not run at the last minute or use very little funds to run. He could easily use those funds for another race or another person. PTH would be tough to beat, and the longer he doesn’t commit to not run keeps challengers out of the race, like a Stehly as an example. It also allows a candidate to be slipped in at the last minute with little to no opposition.

I didn’t know Sioux Falls was divided up using segregation? I’m 54, white, all my ancestors came here after WWII-so I don’t owe reparations-what zip code should I segregate to Oh Wise One?

If you are white, you probably can live anywhere in this town. Oh, but I forgot. Do you own a SUV, and white or black? That could be a determining factor. But if you can afford it, I would recommend Taupeville, because of the voting boxes there. Plus, given what you told me about yourself, you might find the locale of LimitlessMale convenient for you as well.

My ancestors came here in the 1890’s so I too owe no reparations! Limitless Male is only for those who identify as a male. Warm sidewalks and Cold Beer down here in Taupeville without all the street urchins. It’s quite a scene man.

#8 O’Shucksberg & Heels on 07.08.21 at 8:04 am

Don’t forget the PAC setup by PTH and Joel after the last city election. Betcha bucks there yet?

#9 Very Stable Genius on 07.08.21 at 3:05 pm

Oh, there’re urchins in Taupeville. They’re found in the overpricing by establishments down there.

Reparations? Is that the new wedge issue that you Republicans down in Taupeville have found? It riles up the urchins north of 57th Street so they will be fooled into voting for your clean cut south of 57th Street candidates who only care about protecting the rich, right?

And, it’s a free country, you can identify with any sex you want.

“And don’t forget, Limitless says: ….’That she’ll like it, too'”…. (“Or, is that Nugenix?”)…..

#11 "Woodstock" on 07.08.21 at 6:39 pm

“Between reparations, critical race theory, and Sharia law, which one of these do you think is their best attempt at creating a bullshit wedge issue?”….. “Next, they’re probably going to call for the defunding of public universities, you watch”…. “They already don’t like most professors”….

#12 "Woodstock" on 07.08.21 at 7:31 pm

(“Maybe she would like either one”….. (“?”))….

VSG, you have rose colored glasses on and a really shitty view on those who live south of 57th. Hate to tell you, but people of ALL incomes, races, religions, ethnicities live here south of 57th and we live here all quite happily and don’t judge others like you do. Get the damn chip off your shoulder already. Your “tauperville” crap is so overdone.

#14 Name thankfully no longer in quotes on 07.09.21 at 11:39 pm

You’ll find this blog much more tolerable if you ignore all posts by “woodstock” or VSG. He’s very unoriginal and not at all funny. Probably 75% of the posts here are him yapping back and forth with himself. I try to not read anything he posts.

Wow, I was on vacation for a week, so some decided to hate, huh?


I speak of the dominant forces in Taupeville, who are also the dominant forces in our town and not the average citizen in Taupevilee. We all know what I am talking about, including you. Also, don’t try to glass light the truth.


I know for a fact you read my posts, else your comments wouldn’t be up on my comments, nor would you devote an alias of obsession to my comments either. While we are at it, why don’t you tell everyone how you are just a Thunehaken/Jensen hack, who appeared on this blog when MP disappeared on this blog?

So, have a nice day though, and remember I am relaxed and rested from my vacation and ready to do battle once again… Oh, that’s right you don’t read my stuff ;-). …. What’s a guy to do?

( and Woodstock adds: “VSG, did you hit someone’s nerve again?”…. “Good job”… “My grandma used to say that critics are a sign of relevance”…. )

#16 Very Stable Genius on 07.15.21 at 9:37 pm

“Taupeville” and not Taupevilee. I would hate for the anti-quotation boy to get out his intellectual chauvinism pen. Oh, that’s right, he doesn’t read my stuff, that’s right… (But yet, the corrections… And the ‘75%’ thing, how is that possible to know if not read?… (????))
