Happy Hour News

It’s not what you know, it’s who (part infinity):

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Just days after a South Dakota agency moved to deny her daughter’s application to become a certified real estate appraiser, Gov. Kristi Noem summoned to her office the state employee who ran the agency, the woman’s direct supervisor and the state labor secretary.


Noem’s daughter attended too.

JEEBUS! There’s an HR moment just waiting to happen!

Kassidy Peters, then 26, ultimately obtained the certification in November 2020, four months after the meeting at her mother’s office.

Good for her, I guess. Figured out what she needed to pass the exam and took it again and… what’s that, you say?

A week after that, the labor secretary called the agency head, Sherry Bren, to demand her retirement, according to an age discrimination complaint Bren filed against the department. Bren, 70, ultimately left her job this past March after the state paid her $200,000 to withdraw the complaint.

That sounds like pretty straight-ahead corruption to me. Did they ask the Governor what went down?

Exactly what transpired at the July 27, 2020, meeting in the governor’s office isn’t clear. Noem declined an interview request and her office declined to answer detailed questions about the meeting.

IOKIYAR is in effect in South Dakota, and that’s some serious feather-nesting.

  2. This is the state where the AG straight-up committed vehicular homicide *and got away with it^. I’m honestly surprised that Noem only had the woman fired instead of whacked.

    The second season of Fargo opened with Kirstin Dunst hitting a guy and driving home with him on the hood and maybe through the windshield. Interesting show.
