South Dakota governor likely complicit in hate crimes

My home state has gone from being America's laughing stock to becoming a co-conspirator in a hate crime.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem chose and still chooses to put brown people in harm’s way and it will likely put her at risk to litigation for hate crimes and worse. Smithfield employees and the tribal nations trapped in South Dakota are brown people. Noem is a Koch fiend and everything she’s done since she’s held public office is right out of their playbook. That she doesn’t care should be the real story.

Noem's anti-civil rights actions are no accident. She's is a graduate of the Koch Brothers' American Legislative Exchange Council or ALEC, an anti-think tank think tank that teaches how wedge issues raise campaign dollars for the extreme white wing of the Republican Party. The so-called “Americans for Prosperity” is a Koch-soaked dark money group with an agent in Sioux Falls. South Dakota's GOP legislators and candidates enjoy millions in lobbyist benefits from ALEC.

It's really hard not to slut-shame someone who's gone all out to be one. Noem has never supported the Violence Against Women Act and if her #metoo abusers were Democrats she'd be singing like a cardinal. Kristi Noem is a MILF. Is she compliant, infidelitous, or simply a jaded career politician who's used to trading her favors for advancement? Noem is a former Snow Queen who convinced her own daughters to compete in beauty contests. South Dakota was ranked 50th in 'workplace environment‘ and 38th overall in the 2018 WalletHub Best & Worst States for Women’s Equality.

Kristi Noem has simply become a pinup for the Kochs and boycotting South Dakota is apparently the only language the Republican Party seems to understand.

KELO teevee buried the story replete with first person accounts of public intimate contact between Noem and her paramour, Jim Meidinger.
We can confirm that KELOLAND News, along with other South Dakota TV stations we reached out to, have not been offered any live interviews with Governor Noem from her new studio. Without more information provided by the governor’s office, it appears it has only been used for live interviews on Conservative networks and public service announcements. [Gov. Noem uses $130k studio to boost national conservative profile and reach South Dakotans]
