Daugaard appoints Future Fund recipient, campaign donor to BOR

Pam Roberts gave a thousand simoleons to Dennis Daugaard during the 2014 election cycle so in turn she got cash from the Future Fund and now has been been appointed to the scandal-plagued Board of Regents.
Roberts currently is chairwoman of the South Dakota Republican Party. She retired as state secretary of labor in the Daugaard cabinet two years ago. Among her previous roles in state government, she was chief of operations for then-Gov. Bill Janklow. She also served in Cabinet-level posts for the Mickelson, Walter Dale Miller and Rounds administrations. [Mitchell Daily Republic]
Gov. Daugaard gave out $26.5 million in Future Fund grants just during his first three years in office.

In 2013 Daugaard appointed disgraced former US Attorney Kevin Schieffer to the board. In a fit of partisan government overreach Schieffer upended local control by seizing a T-Rex fossil in 1992 from the Black Hills Institute of Geology.

Governors Janklow, Mickelson and Miller are dead as are Patrick Duffy, Richard Benda and the Westerhuis family.

On advice of counsel Mike Rounds won't release the names of his Future Fund cronies because he's shielded by South Dakota's lack of ethics oversight.

Kinda makes me wanna puke.
