Gordon Howie is posting this AM that his Bosworth allies from out of state, specifically Peter Waldron, have filed a formal complaint against State Representative Steve Hickey, based on the Argus Leader article that ran the other day coming via Lora Hubbel’s claims.
This is the same Peter Waldron who filed a complaint with the FEC where he shamelessly lied about the Annette Bosworth prosecution involving a “Hutterite Colony Raid” which arrived in “a convoy of official state vehicles,” and falsely claimed that 3 people interviewed by DCI didn’t vote when records show they did.
But, Howie & Waldron might have to stand in line, because the Attorney General already has a pending petition matter on his plate. No, not Annette Bosworth. That one is almost done. I’m referring to her husband, Chad Haber.
If you recall what I wrote about it back in August of 2014:
Part of what Annette Bosworth is being prosecuted for is attesting on several petitions that she witnessed people signing them in South Dakota while she was halfway across on the other side of the planet, in the Philippines. In other words, she signed off that she circulated nominating petitions during a time when she and Chad were in the Philippines from January 5 through the 15th.
In the batch of petitions for Annette Bosworth, there were several signed off on as having been circulated by her husband, now candidate Chad Haber.
And one of the petitions attested to as being circulated by Haber seems to have the same air of impossibility as those that have his wife in dutch:
Yet the date that the voters signed is marked as January 7, 2014, a date when he was said to be across the world. The exact same thing his wife is currently in trouble for.
Long before the Attorney General should even consider looking into the claims that the Bosworth people are ginning up against State Representative Steve Hickey, they have an already pending petition matter to finish.
I’m sure they have most of the evidence already in hand, so that should be an easy one.
And frankly, I suspect that the people of South Dakota are happy to have our Attorney General out prosecuting murderers and rapists first before they devote an inordinate amount of time to petition prosecutions. I’m sure they’ll get to looking at them all eventually.
But as Howie presses for more attention to be devoted to a petition matters on a retaliatory basis, he should remember who’s first in the queue.
