On her Facebook page, GOP Gubernatorial candidate Lora Hubbel illustrated that she does not know that throwing gasoline on a fire makes it worse.. as she did in the case of her offensive racial comments towards Senator Troy Heinert and Native Americans in general:
And it goes on, including from those who have supported her in the past. But the most pointed response comes from Brandon Ecoffey, Editor of the Lakota Country Times:
“Tribal citizenship is not based off of race. We are not dogs bred for purity.” Ouch. And he continues…
“Her post is absolutely newsworthy and I am sure every Indian paper in the Region will cover it. We will for sure.” Looks like Lora earned some publicity this week. Too bad it’s for “Nazi-era blood quantum politics,” as Ecoffey noted.
And what I noted earlier continues to remain my opinion. She needs to resign from the race.
