After several days, State Dems are sort of shunning Reynold Nesiba after his arrest for unwanted sexual contact, dropping the news late Friday, when they hope no one is paying attention.
At least, they’re going to pretend to sort-of shun him, hoping he’ll get off on the charges:
In a statement Friday, party leaders said Augustana University Professor and Sen. Reynold Nesiba, D-Sioux Falls, would not be allowed to participate in caucus activities pending the outcome of the charges.
Party officials said they would reconsider allowing Nesiba to caucus with Democrats following the conclusion of his legal proceedings.
Nesiba was arrested Monday on one count of sexual contact without consent for allegedly making unwanted sexual advances on a woman in September.
