From the sounds of things going on in Aberdeen, it sounds like State Senate Candidate Cory Heidelberger is getting it with both barrels from the South Dakota GOP.
First, readers started pinging me about this ad, which appeared in the Aberdeen American News this morning…
And this afternoon, I started getting reports that the other shoe dropped in District 3 mailboxes.
The GOP taking a hit on Heidelberger? It shouldn’t come as a shock to those watching the race, considering Cory has been dinging Al Novstrup on his blog for months, with yet another post yesterday where Cory tries to air some self-superiority, and pokes at Novstrup again simply for the fact he can’t resist it.
The postcard relates back to his firing from the Madison School District, where as it’s often recounted, he got into a profane shouting match with a student in front of his Principal. (Probably not a good career enhancer.) And SDWC Bonus – they also grabbed a 2013 SDWC post on a recent Cory proposal to hand out condoms at schools to teachers and students.
On the firing, one big argument against it is that it did happen a while ago, back in 2001. But, it’s hard to use that logic to refute it, when the people who would complain about it are gleefully using the Trump audio from 2005 to declare him unfit to serve in the office of President. If it’s bad to say what Trump did in 2005, it is arguably also bad to yell profanities at a student in the middle of a high school in 2001.
And the campaign rolls on.
