Schopp to retire from role as Education Secretary

...""And earlier this year, emails surfaced that showed Schopp's education department ignored signs of trouble years earlier, in 2011 when an employee flagged what appeared to be a "co-mingling of data" for Gear Up's grants.

Schopp at the time thought one former Department of Education employee was disgruntled after she was laid off and told another the situation was being properly handled.

After the 2015 murder-suicide that generated deeper investigations into the financial scheme, Schopp said she carried guilt about notifying the cooperative the day before the Westerhuis deaths that the state planned to pull a multi-million dollar grant."

Jim Abourezk hits a homer...

... I wanted to make sure all of us interested in South Dakota were made aware of this great article/essay by former Senator James Abourezk. We always mention, "America needs you Harry Truman", ...

In fact, I replaced someone in Senate who was probably one of Loudon’s heroes – Sen. Karl Mundt, who learned such mean-spirited accusations at the knee of Sen. Joseph McCarthy. Senator McCarthy, before he was hounded out of the U.S. Senate, was a world class champion at hurling false accusations against patriotic American citizens. In so doing, he would try to deliver political defeat to his enemies.
