Argus Leader tells the full story about Sanford

If you didn’t read this story, you would think that Sanford has been completely cleared of charges, not quite;

The conclusion of the DCI’s investigation will not result in charges being filed in South Dakota. It remains unclear if similar investigations into Sanford in other jurisdictions remain open.

Since most cases like this involve multiple states and jurisdictions it is likely the Feds could be still investigating. All the SD DCI is saying is they found nothing prosecutable in South Dakota.

Of course there is also this twist in the story;

“Per our previous hearings, I would expect that the affidavits in support of search warrants to be unsealed at some point on Tuesday,” Power said. 

Minutes later, attorney Stacey Hegge, one of the Sanford’s representatives, made a motion to delay the unsealing of those documents.

In other words, there may be something else in those affidavits that talks about a Federal investigation. It ain’t over until the fat billionaire sings.

No doubt this matter will get lost in litigation. The common man would go to prison.

The AG pursuing it gets impeached and they drop the case. As I have said from day 1 the entire impeachment was not about the accident, but that he would not role over to the establishment. He was after Noem and Sanford.

Or better yet, the office of an impeached AG has just got done reviewing the case of a major philanthropist in our state who yields great control over our health care system without charges. What kind of state is this? At least in Guatemala there are plentiful bananas amongst them.
