|Kobach & Krebs|
Trump's ludicrous assertion was taken seriously only within his brigade of sycophants and enablers, among whom we can count Krebs. As to Kobach, I'm neutral. For all I know he was doing a competent and objective job of managing the commission. But his highly visible position at the head of it makes him a politically useful commodity by association with President Trump. Krebs unabashadly touted herself as being "all in" with Trump last September and made the most of her recent attachment to Kobach, even using it as a major campaign pitch, splattered as it was on her website during the past couple of weeks.

Getting Trump Into The Act
But as all fantasies eventually do, the "voter fraud" illusion dissolved into reality. Yesterday Donald Trump himself pulled the plug on the commission, which he set up with no evidence in the first place. Kobach's stature was supported by a charade that Shantel Krebs took as reality and foisted on her supporters as donation-worthy. No doubt Krebs and many other minions of Trump will continue to claim without evidence that voter fraud to the tune of millions of votes occurred in November, 2016. That's the nature of true believers. If Shantel Krebs is "all in" with Trump she must endorse his assertions of voter fraud to be valid. The question before us South Dakotans is whether or not we want somebody who embraces belief without evidence to represent us in Congress. Ms. Krebs, explain yourself.
