Want a Job in the Noem Administration? Get Out Your Checkbook

After running a campaign which is under investigation for violating campaign finance laws, Gov. Kristi Noem has appointed a number of large campaign donors to her cabinet and other positions. It looks like the best way to get a job or appointment in the Noem administration – besides being a member of Gov. Noem’s family – is to have been a campaign donor. The large number of donors in her administration begs the question of who Gov. Noem intends to serve as governor: her campaign donors or the people of South Dakota? Right now, it doesn’t look like the people of South Dakota.

Below is a partial list of Noem appointments and their contributions to Noem’s gubernatorial campaign, along with the date each contribution was reported.
