Most Of SD’s Prosecutors Endorse Hit-And-Run AG’s Potential Rival

Hilary’s emails. Benghazi. Obama’s tan suit.

Hopefully, this scandal also takes out the Sheriff, who aided and abetted the cover-up of the murder. Wish it could also take out Noem, but she managed to slide out from under.

From all I’ve read about this case, Ravnsborg has lost all credibility. He should resign.

At this point what difference does it make that the dead guys head went through Ravnsborg’s windshield?

Not to worry, the Tangerine Traitor will take out Noem. Nobody outgrifts the master.

Always figured Noem as the next Hope Hicks…

Given their breathless wall to wall coverage, I figured those had to be felonies.

You gotta admit, it’s not a good look when your state’s top law enforcement official takes out a pedestrian carrying a light, goes home, apparently to sober up, and only checks out the scene the next day.

It wasn’t to sober up. He was soberly playing with his phone, surfing the internet while driving, when he killed Mr. Boever.

Do we really know that? And, the two contributing causes are not mutually exclusive. In any case, it seems to me that his actions warranted felony charges. Do you think a Black guy from NY or CA who was driving through SD and did the same thing would have gotten misdemeanors? Seriously, do you?

There’s still her out of state junkets on a state plane, which carries a statutory fine of 10 times the operating cost of the plane.

Well sure, Republican kills Democrat. Minor traffic citation, or better yet, a warning. Sad!

Should Biden sneeze on camera, Fox will suggest he has Ebola.

There are instances in criminality where the word allegedly is laughable…

No, I don’t think a Lakota or African-American driver would’ve gotten the same treatment. I’m from South Dakota, so you don’t need to lecture me about racial double standards.

I also know that the official documents proved that Ravnsborg was surfing his phone at the time of the accident, so I don’t need to speculate about drunk driving. He was already negligently driving distracted at the time he killed Mr. Boever. That isn’t “better” than driving drunk, so I’m not sure why the speculation is necessary.
