If Gov. Kristi Noem is so determined to force a court battle over transgender bill, she should pay

If Gov. Kristi Noem is so determined to force a court battle over transgender bill, she should pay the costs

by Rick Knobe


I wish she was using her money.

Gov. Kristi Noem didn’t get the anti-transgender athletes' bill she wanted on Monday. So now she is trying to “win” by executive order.

One directs the South Dakota Department of Education to create and enforce a policy banning transgender girls from K-12 sports. The other directs the Board of Regents to do the same, as long as we don’t lose NCAA events.

Both orders will not survive the court challenges certain to come. I imagine the ACLU and the U.S. Department of Justice are already writing the lawsuits.

This ploy by Noem (shown above in an image from South Dakota Public Broadcasting’s story on the subject) will play well to her base, both in and out of state. She will no doubt rake in money for her campaign and PAC. Also her private Capitol TV studio will be used a lot as she panders on FOX and other networks, keeping her name and face in the national news.

1. Heck no. Can you imagine that can of worms.

Oh Democratic Party pay entire costs of Georgia lawsuits. I hate the governor of South Dakota as well, but that would be horrible precedent.

2. A smarter Sarah Palin.

Not that her end-goals are not as reprehensible as Palin's. She is just as dangerous, but operates with a higher level of political intelligence.
