I was doing an internet search on various political topics looking for something to write about, and I stumbled across the audio recording that Libertarian AG Candidate Chad Haber did with his pornographer friend Lee Stranahan.
Under the portion where it claimed Chad Haber was going to explain what he did for a living, Chad made a few statements that came like a bolt out of the blue. Why? Because on the fly, he rewrote the major part of his family’s narrative.
What was being re-written? The reason they were living in an RV.
This was an important part of Annette Bosworth’s narrative as she promoted a message of fighting back against big government, and how she was fighting the bureaucracy.
Here’s the passage from her web site:
To pay the mounting legal bills and to keep her medical clinic open, Annette and her husband sold nearly all their material possessions, including their home. The pain of their choice to stand up against big government impacted them personally. With options limited, they moved their three young children into an RV donated to them by their church. But Annette never lost faith. She put her trust in God that the truth would prevail and continued her fight against big government.
(My Emphasis.) Her losing everything and why was a campaign line repeated time and again. She sold everything to fight the government.
Fast forward a few months, and Annette has been arrested and charged with falsely attesting to things on her petitions, etcetera. Which triggered her husband, Chad Haber, to run for Attorney General.
But now, the narrative has changed:
Chad Haber: “… We had two very nice houses that were both paid for. We sold two houses to help pay for the medicines the Native American kids my wife was seeing in the shelters needed, and that was not a purely humanitarian effort at the moment – it was services that should have been covered by Medicaid. And then we were never compensated for.”
Lee Stranahan: So you had two homes that were worth over a million two. And you sold those homes, and you put the money into where… Where did the money for that go?
Chad Haber: “It went into Medicines for kids.”
Listen to it here.
From Legal Bills to Medicines for Native American Kids. That’s a major re-write. Under the section “What does Chad do for a living?” Haber manages to rewrite the narrative that his wife Annette had used throughout the campaign.
Looking at the two stories – it appears that they’re different enough that someone is not telling the truth.
Even more interesting, it’s very telling that Chad never actually tells us what he does for a living. He explains what he did on the campaign, and laments that it took a lot of time – but on both an earlier KSOO Radio interview, and in this non-explanation, he really never explains what he does at this point in time to contribute to his families income. Sure he volunteered for his wife’s campaign, but that supposedly doesn’t bring home the bacon – (i.e. WHAT DO YOU DO TO PROVIDE INCOME FOR YOUR FAMILY?).
Because if we look at his wife’s earlier filing with the Senate Ethics Committee, Chad contributed less than $1000 of income to the family in the prior two years. Less than $1000.
Chad with no job, no law degree, an incomplete college education, and a murky past which includes unpaid loans and tax liens, wants to become South Dakota’s next Attorney General.
The concept is just ludicrous at any level.
Update- I should have gone to the obvious source:
Yep. According to both his wife’s and his own filings, it would not appear that Chad has any visible means of income. Like it or not, “Full Time CANDIDATE” is not what most South Dakotans would consider a occupation/profession.
While not a disqualifier for being Attorney General, it would give rise to questions over his recent leadership and executive level experience in managing an office in charge of dozens, if not over a hundred employees.
