The Republican governor is getting backlash from conservatives for sending the bill back to the legislature Friday via a “style and form” veto.
“Unfortunately, as I have studied this legislation and conferred with legal experts over the past several days, I have become concerned that this bill’s vague and overly broad language could have significant unintended consequences,” Noem said in a letter rejecting the bill.
All of this could very well be true. But my concern is she knew what the bill was a couple of weeks ago when she was excited to sign it. Now not so much. It also makes you wonder if someone didn’t get to her big business Amazon NCAA Chamber of Commerce etc. She’s not who I thought she was. She should have just cost herself any hope of a 2024 run for the presidency. She is definitely not ready, regardless of why she changed her mind. Moral conservatives like myself do not like waffling flip flopers.
