Local Op-Ed skewers Noem & Ravsnborg for playing politics with highway death.

McFeely: SD attorney general heavy on self-survival, light on empathy

Every step since then taken by Jason Ravnsborg and the state Republican party, including Gov. Kristi Noem, has been to cover Ravnsborg's rear end.

What Ravsnborg hasn't said is whether he swerved onto the shoulder, presumably where Boever was walking, or whether he'd fallen asleep or was looking at his phone. A man doesn't dart in front of a car moving 65-75 miles per hour like a deer would.

Every step taken by Ravnsborg and the state Republican party, including Gov. Kristi Noem, has been to cover their rear ends. Noem held a press conference and Ravnsborg released a statement expressing sorrow to the victim's family late Sunday afternoon — at least two hours before Boever's family identified his body.

Noem's press briefing — she has the 2024 presidential race in her sights — and Ravnsborg's statement were pure politics, minus any humanity. Ravnsborg was literally saying he was sorry to an anonymous family.

An astounding two-page statement Monday by Ravnsborg in which he admitted to discovering Boever's body Sunday morning was even more self-serving. It also reeked of insider corruption with the revelation that the local sheriff loaned his personal car to the state's attorney general so Ravnsborg could get back to Pierre. We assume this luxury is afforded to every Tom, Dick and Harry who has car trouble in Hyde County?

4. I read South Dakota is a corona virus hotspot now

When the hospitals get overwhelmed and people die the governor will have a lot of explaining to do. I see a resignation or recall in her future for her incompetence and corrupt response.

This incident is just another example of how corrupt she is. if a regular person hit someone like the attorney general did they’d be charged with manslaughter.
