I don’t go looking for this stuff, but like many of us, for me sometimes crazy just pops up in my facebook feed.
Today’s cognitive dissonance has us swinging wildly from complaints from Lora Hubbel’s (very proper) removal from precinct office when she decided to run as a candidate on a ticket against the Republican candidates for Governor & Lt. Governor…. and somehow morphs that into Republican approval of Democrat legislator Jim Bradford… with the article alleging Bradford has multiple felony convictions on his record, including armed robbery
Here’s the facebook post by Lora Hubbel who couldn’t wait to give creedence to the wild accusation, followed by the linked article:
Why is Donald Trump America’s Hero? In South Dakota his numbers are running high, especially among women who have found it nearly impossible to get some footing in the state when it comes to political leadership unless of course you follow the current leadership’s directives. Last year, Lora Hubbel ran for Precinct Captain in Minnehaha County and won by more than 73% of the vote – votes by the GOP electorate in the county. Three months later, the state GOP leadership under the direction of Craig Lawrence, the state GOP Chair, changed the bylaws and made them retroactive, stating no member may hold a GOP office if they ran under another party.
Patty Shiery ran for State Senate for the Pine Ridge, SD seat. Shiery is part Native American and Pine Ridge houses the second largest Native American population, a population who is dying. The infant mortality rate is as much as 300% higher than the national average and unemployment is 80% during parts of the year. OF AMERICA’S TOP 11 POOREST COUNTIES, 6 ARE LOCATED IN SOUTH DAKOTA – MORE THAN HALF! The seat Shiery hoped to occupy for her people was tightly coveted by State Representative James Bradford. He challenged Shiery’s petitions and the Secretary of State upheld the challenge without telling Shiery what was upheld and why she was denied a place on the ballot.
When I went to pull up Shirlee Bradford’s case file, James Bradford had an entry as well:
Who the hell is Ralph Woody? Same person? You tell me because Ralph Woody has been in and out of federal prisons nearly his whole life:
Missouri State Pen #48087 P.G. to stealing in Stoddard & Cape Girardeau Counties, served 09/12/1983 to 06/09/1987
Missouri State Pen #15365 P.G. to receiving stolen property in Pemiscot, served 05/17/1968 to 04/27/1971
Missouri State Pen #09916 T.C. assault with intent to maim in Scott, served 03/13/1965 to
Missouri State Pen #73239 = P.G. to armed robbery & jail break in Madison, served 01/03/1958 to 12/10/1960
Also #8410-1509 USM Sioux Falls, SD
#19965-175 USP Leavenworth, KS
#90065-132 USP Leavenworth, KS
Same guy? Is this the man who taught school to children? The man the state opened a case for in 2003 when he was teaching and when he was a State Rep of South Dakota at the time and said nothing?
I don’t know what agency has to come and arrest the entire administration of South Dakota, but they better get there soon! Where’s Donald Trump!
This seems to be the only article originating from “MediaAgnostic,” and I suspect it’s for good reason. I find it difficult to believe someone exhibiting this kind of disjointed train of thought has the mental capacity to lift a hand and flop it around a keyboard accurately enough to form words. Because they aren’t forming anything coherent.
I really doubt Jim Bradford would have been in a penitentiary in Missouri from 1983-1987, and the state would have not noticed it in issuing a teacher’s certificate. Nevermind the fact he obtained a degree from Sinte Gleski in 1987.
And the accusation has nothing to do with Lora Hubbel at all. Aside from it being utterly off the wall.
I’m not sure who the author “MediaAgnostic” is, but obviously they have a beef with Bradford to accuse him of being a multiple felon.
And whatever they’re smoking? They had better stop RIGHT NOW. They can’t afford to lose anymore brain cells.
I notice I hit a couple of nerves with this story.
First, under the comment section for the post, it appears that former State Representative Patty Shiery (or someone claiming her e-mail address) is trying to push the claim that Representative Jim Bradford is actually a convicted felon who committed armed robbery, etc.
Hint to those trying to do ridiculous BS under my comment section which could prove libelous…. Yes, I’m going to look up your e-mail that you provided, so you can take responsibility for it.
Which just happens to be the e-mail used by Patty Shiery elsewhere on the internet.
Coincidentally, about the same time I pointed this out, the author of the original article posted a screed against me, and doubled down on Representative Jim Bradford, claiming that he is a convicted felon by the name of Ralph Woody, who killed a jailer trying to escape in 1968.
There’s no evidence at the moment of the identity of “MediaAgnostic” at the moment, but I’d try three guesses as to who it is. And I’m not thinking I’d need guess #2 or #3. But, that’s just speculation on my part.
