Ok. So our friend Stace Nelson, who has many good qualities, has become a horse’s ass in the last six months.
I was forwarded an email LRC staffer Lou Adamson sent to all legislators late last week describing the status of the legislative planning committee.
From: Adamson, Lou (LRC)
Sent: Thu 5/31/2012 2:10 PM
To: LRC – ALL SD REPRESENTATIVES; LRC – ALL SD SENATORS
Subject: I believe we have all the issues ironed out. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Please fill out the following survey by clicking on the link:
On the previous survey we could tell who they were coming from.
Thank you for your patience and have a wonderful week.
Legislative Research Council
Stace, being a gentleman with class, chose to respond to Lou and all 105 legislators with this:
Is this in regards to the “Lust for Power” HB 1133 that was passed so ill advisory this last session?
If so, I have no desire to be involved in such an asinine effort at subverting the electoral process of South Dakotans. Matter of fact, please ensure that legislation is prepared to repeal this abomination in the event the voters are not successful in referring and doing so themselves.
God bless & Semper Fidelis.
Respectfully, your public servant,
Representative, District 25 (Hanson, McCook, Northern & Western Minnehaha Counties)

Did Stace just call Lou a “SIR?” I think it’s time for a response of our own…
Dear “public servant” / Rep. Stacey Victor Nelson,
I am not sure if you were raised in a barn, or if you simply have no manners. Lou happens to be a long term employee of the Legislative Research Council… been there much longer than you. I’ve also “happened” to notice that she is female. She is a nice lady. She answers the phone like a lady. She even looks like a nice lady.
At the very least, I would have thought a former marine would have the decency to respond to people with their respective gender. I CAN’T IMAGINE MOST MARINES WOULD HAVE EVER CALLED A FEMALE “SIR.”
Please tell me that you understand what you are doing in Pierre. I cannot imagine that you were there for two years and did not realize Lou is a female.
It makes me wonder if you are effective / relevant in Pierre if you can’t even properly identify the gender of staff members after working with them for two years. No wonder you have issues with the LRC when you don’t even know who you are working with.
