      Does not take a lot of guts. They are not neighbors. The older couple were neighbors to Billie’s grand parents 60 years ago! Now they live 30 miles away! Not neighbors! Pretty disingenuous. The other guy, also not a neighbor! Also not a reputable or honest guy. I won’t put anyone down, just Google him!

      So much for South Dakotans being neighborly, I guess SD has jumped on the hate train too. SD is not 100% republican like most of you think. We need a governor for ALL SDans, not just the flaming red ones.

    Billie is running as Republican light that he’s a conservative… When he is in fact a liberal

    Why is Kurt Evans allowed in any of the debates? Why is he even running? He admitted he does not know much on subjects that the real two candidates addressed. He just fumbled. What a waste of viewer and serious candidate time.

      I take this with a grain of salt. Who knows if they have a vendetta against Billie and they see this as a way to finally get back at him.

      Also the guy in the purple shirt was the former mayor of Gregory Billie lives in rural Burke. I’m sure they know each other, but to call him a neighbor sounds like a stretch.

        Kristi is tough on drugs. She’s also compassionate for recovering addicts who have done their time and are working for forgiveness. Democrats push them to the street and that’s only after they’ve used them for political advantage.

    If thieving drug users support Kristi (and vice versa, she ran the ad, not the convict), it must be because they are exactly like her in every way right? Similar to Billie and Bernie. Good for the goose, good for the gander I say.

    I am said, convicted drug thief/scum. Almost 10 years ago I became addicted to pain pills that I was prescribed to treat my Crohn’s Disease. While in the hell of the addiction, I did some things I am not proud of and was proseccuted for it and ultimatley recieved a suspended imposition of sentence. I was the mayor of Gregory at the time and I embarrassed myself, my family, my friends and my community. But since that time, I have went above and beyond to help others who suffer with addiction and Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I worked with Attorney General Jackley to get the drug monitoring bill passed in SD and testified in the senate judicial commoitte in support of the bill. It was very embarrassing and humbling. But, if it helped even one addict get help before they got to the place I was, it was worth it. My testimony was also used in Georgia to pass a similar bill. I also spoke at the SD state pharmacists convention to help pharmacists to spot people with addictions. I facilitated the first “take back” day in Gregory County for unused prescriptions. I have also ran 2 marathons to help raise money for children fighting IBD and been on a mission trip to help poor people in the Dominican Republic. All of these things cant and wont ever erase what I did. I live with it everyday and it was all my fault. Nobody had to “dig” me up. I have always been very open about what happened. I had to be. It was all over the news. Atleast the bad stuff was. I have served on my church board, the gregory housing board and coach many of our local youth teams. I have tried my best to SHOW the people affected by my actions, my famiy, friends and community that I was sorry for what happened. I dont mind taking the feedback from the situation that I created years ago. But Kristi Noem had nothing to do with it. Again, I will never be able to fully regain the trust of everyone and I understand that. Both candidates have expressed the need for more help for addicts and their families and I will be there to help regardless of who sits in the governor’s mansion in Pierre.

    I thought Democrats were supposed to be a compassionate party. Who among us doesn’t have something in our past that we wish wasn’t there, but either through experiences or by the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ we have turned our lives around. Yeah, there are probably neighbors of Kristi’s that don’t agree with her policies as well as these neighbors that don’t agree with Billie’s. Why can we South Dakotans not have different opinions without tearing each other apart. That goes for both parties. The mud slinging isn’t just one sided as so many of you are indicating. There’s a lot of stories that could be told of what is going on in the Sutton campaign, but some of us chose to not make it public knowledge.

    No need for personal insults. Democrats showing their true colors. If you have a problem with someone in the ad, so be it, scroll on by. There were several of us that could have made personal attacks on people in Billie’s Republicans For Sutton ad, but we chose to ignore and move on. We are all free to have our opinions and to place our mark on the ballot for whomever we feels to line up closest with our beliefs. No need for personal attacks. After all, I don’t know of anyone that doesn’t have a “past”.

      Its laughable that you point out Democrats running people down when I’ve seen republicans do it just as much. Heck there the other day I saw a photo posted to facebook with a photo of Billie and a photo of Kristi with the caption that said “only one will/is able to stand up for South Dakota.” While I know Kristi would never endorse this type of message one of her followers did. I was also disappointed to see how many likes and comments it got. I think we can all agree both parties have pretty crappy people who support them.

    Is this bullshit or what? Republicans, including Kristi, have bashed Billie and called him horrible things. Mr. Juracek, assuming GOPDAD is really him, makes one “amends” and the republicans here empathize and still go on the attack against Billie.

    If you don’t want to be scrutinized- don’t put yourself in the public and scrutinize another person. You’ve entered the political ring again – and your past has been brought up.

    I think your candor here is great but if you were sincere you wouldn’t have brought it up- but it appears it’s only been done in damage control for the fact that people are bringing up your past.

    This also shows Kristi’s campaign staff is desperate, I’ll advised, and didn’t actually screen this person. Now they have another fire to put out.

    It’s making more and more people move to Billie. I did-

It also appears to me he is willing to take the bloody nose without attacking the attackers. It also appears to me he is authentic. Are you?

    I think the person who is the biggest scumbag in this discussion is the one who questions the sincerity of Mr. Juracek. In this society, people who have paid their debts to society do not have to wear Scarlett Letter’s about their past. But, if brought up, they can discuss however they want.

        Perhaps, he preferred his comments to be taken “as written” without the obvious malice directed toward him by anonymous trolls.

        Perfectly understandable.

        Those that use a regular, identifiable “handle,” rather than a generic anonymous comment, are generally identifiable by those who actually know them, but it does serve to avoid personal smearing by those afraid to identify themselves.

    I commend Mr. Juracek for coming foward and doing great things in the field of addiction, but maybe the commercial would have been more credible if the Noem campaign had him address drug addiction instead of a neighborly attack on Billie. I am sure Kristi has neighbors that don’t like her either. That’s just life.

      Huh.. i too am his neighbor and have known him for 30 some years. I have watched his decline into the liberal mindset and can honestly say it was incredibly dissapointing to watch. We are not voting for someone to run the state cause they are “nice”. Nice doesnt mean qualified or experienced. So continue singing his praises as your “financial planner”, but he has no business being governor or in politics for that matter.

        No, you are right. We cant just vote for someone just because of niceties. I am just trying to give examples of actual interactions that make me want to vote for him. I felt the examples went beyond “being nice.” But we obviously both get to have our opinions, and will vote for whom we each feel will do the best job. My point more so was that just 3 people dont have the only opinion on what he is really like. And my opinion isn’t the only one either.

      This ‘Anonymous’ should show the same courage of GOPDAD, Wade and identify him/herself. I can almost guarantee they are part of Billie’s campaign. Wade showed courage in many ways and the fact
      of his ‘mistakes’ does not remotely discredit his opinion as to Billie’s (when does one drop the the childish form of ones name?, it’s cute at 20 at 34 and running for office just juvenile) true nature. If he wanted to run as a Republican and true conservative he would have gone through the republican primaries, likely not winning, all else is smoke and mirrors. He supported Obama and Hillary Clinton. Have y’all lost your senses? You cannot be a married bachelor, hot and cold and anti abortion whilst loving Hillary and Obama. A leopard doesn’t change his spots and obviously he’s a liberal trying to fake his way into the Governors mansion. Then the real begins. He’s a liberal and his ‘better’ half is ten times worse. Wake up South Dakota whatever Kristis faults she is far more genuine and us the record to show it. Yes Politics is a dirty game and it takes a certain type of person to want to play it . There may be some genuine ‘publi servants’ in the world but to suggest BILLY is a conservative is a total joke. Wake up. Once again he supported Obama and Hillary. Do you really think when push comes to shove, if South Dakotans are soft headed enough to elect him, he won’t be another party apparatchik for the desperate and wayward democrats. The historical party of slavery now super pro immigration(to bolster their flagging support) and every other nonsense. Look what Obama’s affordable care did to working Americans health care cost and deductibles. One (little Billy) cannot be hot and cold. He cannot be anti abortion while supporting a nightmare destructive force like Hillary Clinton who favors abortion as a choice right up to birth. The current six month limit is not enough for her bloodlust. Little Billy, the leftist leaning party apparatchik and comrade voted for her. Wake up South Dakotans why not identify yourself this Anonymous, show nearly as much courage as GOPDAD, at least he is repentant. I bet you’re part of the campaign aren’t you???😘God bless America, God bless South Dakota and God bless Kristi Noem.

    Kristi is by far the best choice for governor & the only one qualified. One needs to look at how she handled herself at home, in the state legislature and as our Congresswoman to understand the real Kristi Noem. So many false accusations have been said about her because she is high profile for SD. We have to look beyond these ads and realize the campaign is just temporary. Candidates don’t put these ads together, their media people do. I think those of us on both sides of this race have cringed a few times when our candidate’s ads have come on. It will all be done soon! Two good people, but only one will provide the strong leadership and bring great things to our state. That’s Kristi.

        Yes you are absolutely correct. Integrity matters. Hillary supports ninth month abortion, taking away our second amendment right to self defense etc., etc. No true conservative would ever be on tape saying they “support Bernie Sanders policies but voting for Hillary.” He voted for the ultimate nightmare of America Hillary Clinton, supported Obama to the bitter end. I’m guessing he still has great admiration for our previous ‘communist’ er’ I mean democratic Commander in Chief. All other talk is ‘smoke and mirrors’. Conservative? Yeah right while he cheers on the great destructive forces in American political life. You cannot talk out of both sides of your mouth. Ones ‘integrity’ is dictated by Ones chosen associations. Billie Sutton supported these people. Every word that comes out of his mouth is tainted and not to be trusted. One cannot roll back ones associations. Even the Sutton campaign is not disputing this…They just believe by saying Billie believes differently it gives Young Sutton a pass. Once again please be logical people. America is on a roll. Jobs are coming back. We don’t need unqualified economic migrants rolling in. We need legal immigrants who want to contribute to this great nation. For the love of God see them for who they are. Wolves in, not so disguised, sheeps clothing. Remember Hillary said in the debate with Trum she favored abortion right up to birth as the mothers choice. Is there any limit to her sickness??? ‘CONSERVATIVE’ BILLIE SUTTON supported her. Do not forget. God bless South Dakota.
