You have to wonder when the Citizens for Liberty will ever stop attacking Republicans. Because they’re back at it, once again:
Vargo is taking a leave of absence from his position as Pennington County State’s Attorney while serving as Attorney General through Jan. 6, 2023, with Lara Roetzel serving as acting State’s Attorney in Vargo’s absence.
The petition calling for Vargo’s resignation, presented by Tonchi Weaver at the commission meeting, garnered about 100 signatures.
Mike Mueller, representing South Dakota Citizens for Liberty, suggested that statutes were being ignored, and that the board should study statutes presented by Weaver before making a decision.
Commissioner Ron Rossknecht moved to deny the action requested in the petition, which passed 3-1, with Lasseter voting no. Commissioner Deb Hadcock was absent from the meeting.
How dare he temporarily step in with the approval of his employers and help the state!
Politics in Rapid City are just as toxic as ever.
