Lora Hubbel just has to keep digging that hole deeper…

Lora Hubbel’s latest spin on her attack on the GOP Chair is because he ran for office 6 years after switching parties.

2 months after losing the race for the Republican nomination for Governor in the 2014 Republican primary, Lora Hubbel joined the Independent ticket to run against Republicans.

And less than 6 months after resigning as chairman of the Constitution party, Hubbel announced she was running for Governor as a Republican.

If we’re comparing it to Lora’s track record, 6 years is a pretty darned long time.

(She just has to keep digging that hole deeper, doesn’t she?)

Update – Lora’s still digging away…

I never realized she held such a dim view of Ronald Reagan.  Do you think she also applies that to Constitution Party members…. and former chairwomen?

Hubbel decries political opportunists.. after changing parties.

Dana Ferguson of the Argus has posted her story regarding Lora Hubbel’s attacks. And it just keeps getting funnier:

Lederman, who was elected state chair in February, registered to vote as a Democrat in Iowa 1998, and records show he last voted there in 2000. He is still registered to vote in the state as a Democrat, a Jasper County official said Wednesday.

Hubbel, who rejoined the GOP last year after a two-month stint in the state’s Constitution Party, said the record demonstrates the state’s Republican Party has been “highjacked by political opportunists.”


“As your next governor, I will take away the liberal top cover for these fake Republicans…”

Darned political opportunists…

UPDATE: Here’s a visual representation of a Lora Hubbel campaign presser:

As we go further and further down the rabbit hole… From KELO Radio:

Party changing Hubbel accuses SDGOP chair of party changing

Republican candidate for South Dakota governor Lora Hubbel has accused state GOP chair Dan Lederman of being a Democrat.

In a series of emails, she provided a document that showed Lederman was a registered Democrat when he lived in Iowa–in 2000.


Earlier this year, Hubbel resigned as chair of the South Dakota Constitutional Party. In 2014, she ran as the lieutenant governor candidate as an independent, with the late Mike Myers.

They ran as Independents, while Dennis Daugaard and Matt Michels ran as Republicans and Susan Wismer and Susie Blake ran as Democrats.

Currently, Hubbel claims to be a member of the Republican Party.

SD Political Time Machine: Lora Hubbel elected Chair of SD Constitution Party – July 11, 2016

It’s time for the South Dakota Political Time Machine…

Constitution Party of South Dakota elects
former state representative as new chairwoman

New party officers and 5 candidates nominated for the CP of South Dakota


Kurt Evans won the CP’s nomination for the US Senate at the Constitution Party of South Dakota’s state convention that was held on Saturday, July 9th in Sioux Falls. We are happy to have Kurt back in our party after a long hiatus. He was a delegate to our national convention back in 1996 when the party was still under the original party name of the “US Taxpayers’ Party”. Welcome back Kurt!

Presidential Nominee Darrell Castle joined the convention live via Skype with updates on his campaign and a live Q&A session with the state convention attendees.

Lori Stacey decided not to seek re-election as State Chairman. She had recently been elected as the new Regional Co-Chairman for the 12 Midwestern states at the National Convention which took place in Salt Lake City in April.

Lora Hubbel was elected as the new State Chairman of the Constitution Party of South Dakota! We also elected Joel Bergan as the new State Vice-Chairman. Lori Stacey will serve as State Party Treasurer and Secretary.

As found here, because the SD Constitutional Party removed it from their website here.  But they do make reference to it here.

(Is there a point to this? Don’t worry. It’s going to get funnier….)

Gubernatorial Candidate claims Attorney General Marty Jackley is a “crook who belongs in prison,” and Gov. Daugaard forced “horrible sexual abberance” coming to SD

In the last 24 hours, a Republican Gubernatorial Candidate has accused her opponent, Attorney General Marty Jackley of being a “crook who belongs in prison,” as well as claiming that sitting Governor Dennis Daugaard introduced “forced horrible sexual abberance (sic) in Common Core coming to SD.”

I’d give you a couple of guesses who said it, but I don’t think you’d need them.

Republican Gubernatorial candidate and former State Legislator Lora Hubbel is in the hunt for the2018 GOP Nomination for Governor in a field of candidates including herself, Terry Lee La Fleur, Congresswoman Kristi Noem, and Attorney General Marty Jackley.  And while she’s not likely to win the nomination, she might win an honorable mention for “the candidate most likely to be medicated,” as she makes bizarre allegations against her opponent, as well as the man she would like to follow in the Governor’s chair, Governor Dennis Daugaard.

In a direct statement and an exchange with one of her commenters on Facebook last night, she has attacked her opponent Jackley as well as one of his campaign staff, Dale Bartscher, and claimed that the Governor’s allowance of Common core in the State f South Dakota’s educational curriculum has allowed “horrible sexual abberance” into the state.

But don’t take my word for it. Read for yourself:

I will point out that Lora has been quite critical of my work on this website for following her statements and pronunciations. However, when a declared gubernatorial candidate makes bizarre statements, and claims her opponent belongs in prison, when the declarations as made publicly in social media, it’s news, whether she wants to back her statements with facts and figures.

Whether a candidate is claiming that one of her opponents should be in jail, or that “Brain eating nanobots are being put in vaccines,” it rises to the level of news.

Whether Lora likes it or not.

And a Lora Hubbel blast from the past

I don’t know if I ever featured this Facebook post from current Gubernatorial candidate Lora Hubbel back in 2015 when she promoted it to her friends and followers, but I was looking for a photo, and stumbled across it.

I’m sure it was one of those that was too good to pass up at the time.

Brain Eating Nanobots Being Put in Vaccines Says Whistleblower.”

Doesn’t that single post do a great job in encapsulating everything that’s wrong with a Hubbel candidacy for Governor?

Mercer takes a ride on the Hubbel-craft, and we hear what she would do to us if elected.

Bob Mercer. Lora Hubbel. Interview.

What else can you say about those words? It’s in the Capitol Journal today, and comes across as a disjointed stream of consciousness. Which might be a good description of the Hubbel Campaign:

Hubbel told a story about a weak apple tree in her yard. She tried to get better apples. Finally she cut it down and planted a new tree. Now she has good apples.

She thinks that should happen in South Dakota’s Republican Party. Cut down the corrupt tree, with its bad fruit of EB-5 and GEAR UP, and plant new, she said.


One of her ideas is to pay legislators in proportion to how much they work. She wants federal money removed from state government’s budget.

“I have to knock a few walls down,” she said. She added, “If I could just control my mouth.”


How she’s raising money: “I haven’t even started yet,” Hubbel said. She planned to “flip” three re-possessed houses she bought and use the proceeds as seed money. But that hasn’t worked out.

She showed photos on her phone of one place, its rooms crammed with empty plastic bottles, including the spot where the former resident slept atop them. She’s been busy cleaning the mess.
