  1. Will Chronic Complainer Scott from South Da Cola Complainer Blog finally run for office such as Sioux Falls Mayor?

    1. And considering ‘Anonymous, 7:19’ and ‘Anonymous, 7:20’ as fat-fingerd duplicate contributions from the same South Dacola reader – the first four Replies to this post are from three of those readers?!?!
      What are the chances.

  3. As for my house, we will vote for anybody except Emperor Tenhaken!!! This is the same guy who asked the governor to mandate a shutdown so he did not have to take responsibility. He is also the same guy who tried to force a mandate, but backed off and then backed back on. In a crisis he panicked. He then essentially forced businesses to voluntarily shut down for no reason by bringing about pressure. I will look for a leader.

  4. Heard a very interesting rumor of a serious challenger prompted him to make the announcement…stay tuned
