From KELOLAND, it appears that reporter Bob Mercer is claiming there were some antics that may have been observed during South Dakota’s first electronic session which gave rise to the last minute call for a disciplinary hearing:
An hour earlier, several Republican and Democratic legislators had told KELOLAND News to check out Langer’s behavior.
She was seen barefoot in room 413, which was the Senate’s base of operation during the final day. She also was spotted barefoot in the hallway outside, and in room 499.
Her diction was loose, her walk unsteady.
The lieutenant governor told Jensen there were no legislative days left for a disciplinary committee to act.
Curd said it would be appropriate to pursue the matter through the Legislature’s Executive Board.
Any fact-finding, dismissal or exoneration could be done through the board, Curd said.
