Noem also isn’t remotely concerned about South Dakota “taxpayers” - as long as their dollars are spent protecting big business like the Keystone Pipeline:





State to pay legal fees in lawsuit over Gov. Kristi Noem's 'riot booster' law


The state taxpayers will be paying for the lawsuit over Gov. Kristi Noem's new "riot booster" law aimed at Keystone XL pipeline protesters.

Noem tweeted on Thursday that the state will pay $145,000 to the plaintiffs to cover legal fees accrued in the litigation of the lawsuit, which was filed against the state by the American Civil Liberties Union of South Dakota on behalf of four organizations and two individuals who plan to protest the pipeline.

I don't see how that matters when she was sued by the ACLU and merely settled it instead, which saves more money than it would cost if she hadn't. That sum isn't exactly an extraordinarily high either and likely cheaper than going all the way. The thing is she can't stop people from protesting, and she likely would have lost if she went all the way with it.

Why didn’t her crack team of “legal scholars” warn her of that possibility?

Like you said she relied on those at The Federalist Society. If you recall, I agreed with that being an unreliable group.

Noem decided to double down, and to allow her spokesman to get incredibly stupid at the same time.

“Governor Noem is very used to fighting off criticism from the left,” Noem spokesman Ian Fury said in a Wednesday email. “After all, in the past year, she was the only governor in the entire nation to never order a single business or church in her state to close. The left bullied her incessantly, but she didn’t cave.”

“But if any number of conservative pundits are to be believed, that same governor who refused to cave is now caving to the NCAA and Amazon on the issue of fairness in women’s sports. What? Apparently, uninformed cancel culture is fine when the right is eating their own,” Fury said...

Yeah she’s not winning with that one.

So apparently transgenderism is the next hot button political topic, and she's choosing that particular hill to die on? Disappointing. Thought she was smarter than this.

We’ve seen this movie too many times.

Here’s the short story:

The Chamber of Commerce and big business is pushing against conservatives nationwide on critical race theory and transgender sports.

Kristi Noem is a swamp creature who caved to special interests over conservative voters.

The end. https://t.co/oeRvaK77Ir

Okay, I have made up my mind and she has caved. There's got to be something that does not meet the eye here.
I think it's obvious she is being leaned on though—like one of her advisors having a conflict of interest. This article provided more information and better arguments to me.

Kristi Noem Running The Mike Pence Play To Help Leftists Control The Culture

By “legal scholars,” does Noem mean her chief of staff, Tony Venhuizen, a lawyer who also sits on the board of the Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce, which listed H.B. 1217 as a “tier 1” priority “of the highest importance” to oppose this legislative session? Or perhaps she means her “top advisor,” Matt McCaulley, a lawyer and lobbyist whose “clients include Sanford Health, which owns Sanford Sports Complex, a Sioux Falls arena that hopes to lure NCAA tourneys”?

Sanford Health also performs transgender treatments on minors, according to testimony before the South Dakota legislature in 2020. It therefore opposed a bill to ban transgender child mutilation last year, testifying and lobbying against it. Its lobbyist, McCaulley, is also getting hundreds of thousands of dollars to advise Noem, in an obvious conflict of interest state lawmakers have voiced concerns about.

“McCaulley is also the managing partner of Redstone Law Firm in Sioux Falls, which has been hired to provide outside legal counsel to the Noem administration,” noted in-state outlet Capital Journal shortly before Noem reversed her position on this bill.

Venhuizen is a partner in McCaulley’s firm, so he also stands to professionally benefit from the governor’s decision here. Are these the legal advisors she’s talking about?

She's actually got a bit of a point, though it's not a particularly strong one (lawsuits and revenue losses). But she did such a blatant cave job that it doesn't matter.

I think this highlights continuing problem of who an executive chooses as their advisors. It really is critical. One person runs an executive office. There is way too much co-mingling with corporate or vested interests that are not aligned with most of the people inside govt. It's rearing its ugly head here and it raged during the Trump years. It's on steroids under Biden.

The root of the problem is that politicians choose the politics over the principles about 99% of the time. And a big part of that problem stems from the ability of politicians to make politics a lifelong career.
