According to a source, Meidinger has since retreated to DC after a visit to South Dakota leaving purported love interest Noem to flounder following revelations of a 20-year driving record fraught with recklessness resulting in numerous arrest warrants for failure to appear.
From the Argus Leader:
Noem's dive into the family operation led to posts agricultural boards - her first steps into politics. She served on the South Dakota Soybean Association board. In 1997, then-Sen. Tom Daschle nominated her to serve on the state board of the Farm Service Agency. That led to an appointment to the board from President Clinton. Noem also attended one of Daschle's leadership camps, which were intended to groom up-and-coming Democrats to compete for local and state offices. Noem said she attended when the camps were open to Republicans because she wanted to learn more about campaigning. Noem isn't sure how her name got to Daschle for the FSA appointment. It came when the board was being expanded from three members to five. Regardless, Noem was a Republican serving among Democrats. "I don't know why or how she got on that board," said Mike O'Connor, a former Democratic lawmaker who served as the executive director of the state FSA.Hmmm. Millions in farm subsidies apparently negotiated through FSA. Evidence of entitlement, solipsism.
Democrats=safe sex. Republicans=cheap sex.
