Curious story about a past democrat state official. Apparently you could have 2 in the 70’s.

A reader caught the story about the tab a day or so ago, and how after the Democrat didn’t win against EY Berry, he eventually ended up as the head of GOED under Kneip.  And he posed the question to me – did you hear the story about Allmon’s successor?

The last time Democrats ran Pierre, apparently it was a bit of a party place. I’d long heard rumors about the Governor getting kicked out of the mansion for a while because he had ‘a friend’ of… well, of the opposite sex. And there’s this article about the Democrat who took over the office of Economic Development after Allmon:

2 wives? 9 kids? Good grief! Apparently it was a lot easier to conceal this kind of thing before the days of the Internet & facebook!

    Uh….I seem to remember that Gov Janklow also hosted a mistress who held several positions in state government. Doesn’t excuse the actions of the Dem’s in your post.

    Thanks for posting this. It was refreshing to remember how packed with news a page of newspaper could be way back then.
