Pitty, the Neo-Con Blogger from the North has attacked me on several occasions. He now of course is attacking Private Citizen Activist Blogger Cory Heidelberger for moving to Nebraska (even though Cory has said nothing about the move). So what’s his beef? Besides the fact that he apparently is extremely bored, he seems to think that Cory shouldn’t be able to blog about South Dakota politics after leaving the state. Mind you, Cory isn’t possibly moving to another country, he might be moving to Nebraska (I believe Lincoln). I have friends who grew up in South Dakota who now live in California, Colorado, New York, Florida and New Mexico who are always sending me tips about what is going on in Sioux Falls and South Dakota. In the age of modern technology and the internet it is easy to keep up with local politics even if you don’t live here.
But what I find hypocritical about Pitty’s obsession is all the stuff he has been involved in or associated with.
Remember when a certain young female legislator was living out of state with her new husband yet still served her last year of her term though she didn’t live here? There were formal complaints filed with the GOP leadership in Pierre and nothing became of it. Where was Pitty’s outcry then?
Or when Pitty interjects himself in Sioux Falls city politics though he lives in Brookings. Seems a bit hypocritical to me.
But Pitty’s greatest hypocrisy is how he was still involved and owned his political blog while serving as Deputy SOS in which he had to leave in disgrace because he was using access to public information to benefit his personal marketing business while current Sioux Falls Mayor Poops was trying to hide his servers.
While Pitty seems to be concerned about a private citizen activist blogger living about 2 hours from the SD border still blogging about SD politics, may I suggest he looks in the mirror, or two (probably needs to slide a couple together to see his full body).
