Changing direction for a moment. Ummm, has there been a nut job like this holding such a high post in our government?

This has actually never happened!

That is a super reliable source. Former chair of the Democratic National committee. Former Biden campaign guy. Former Obama guy. I am sure he is not the least bit biased.

Of course if you looked elsewhere at more reputable sources, you might seen something like this:

https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-middle-east-51289277
After holding talks with Mr Trump in Washington DC on Monday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the president as "the greatest friend that Israel has had in the White House".
"The deal of the century is the opportunity of a century, and we're not going to pass it by," he said.

Are you asking if a terrible accident has ever occurred before? Or just specifically a Republican or Democrat?
Has this ever happened before? That's the title of the thread anyways, so just guessing that'd be what he's asking. Do people often say they thought they hit a deer when it was actually another human being? I don't think I've ever heard of that one before, but not saying it hasn't happened.

The SD AG had six speeding tix from 2014 to 2018. A lot people, including myself, think he's probably lying, do you? But how do you prove something like that? When you hit a deer, you should mercifully go back and check to make sure it's dead, and that it isn't causing a hazard for other motorists. It's not a law. Given, that he's an AG, the fact that he didn't stay at the scene for law enforcement is suspicious. That would've been the 'by-the-book' thing to do.
This is a very sad deal for sure. I have heard of a driver hitting a human and trying to claim they thought it was a deer or dog but I didn't believe them in that case and don't in this one either.
This story sounds a little bit similar to when Shane Hedges who was an aide to Gov. Judy Martz was the driver in an accident where another man was killed. If I recall correctly at first he seemed to deny his level of involvement but eventually did plead guilty to the charges that were brought against him. Hopefully the SD AG will do the right thing in this case as well. The Hedges wreck was the one where Gov. Martz thought it was a good idea to wash Hedges' bloody clothes ...
The AG released his version of events yesterday. Not blow by blow, but essentially said he hit what he assumed was a deer. He stopped along the road, couldn't find anything. He went nearby to the sheriff's house and got him (apparently know each other?) They both went out, couldn't find anything. AG said he was headed in the next morning with a staffer (?), they stopped in the daylight to look, discovered the man in the ditch, called the sheriff back over. Says he didn't have a drop to drink at the event the prior night, providing lists of people to verify. Says he has sat down to be interviewed and is cooperating. Obviously a lot of threads to follow for investigators, and what you're likely to believe or disbelieve depends on your political bent and ability to be impartial. Quite different than the Martz/Hedges situation from years ago.

This goes to show that one must go with the Dan Bongino train of thought, wait 24-48 hours until much more information surfaces... So far this really changes the narrative.

It changes it from 'has anyone ever hit a person and thought it was a deer' to 'has anyone ever hit a deer and when they looked for it and didn't find it called 911 and drove to their "friend" the county sheriff's house and they both went and looked for the ^deer^ and couldn't find it and then it turns out to be a person the next day?'

Maybe Bongino meant to wait 72-96 hours? Oh, wait, it's already past that.

Why you so interested in this story?
Why are you so interested in why I'm interested in this story? Whatever I say, you're going to say I'm biased or that it's politically motivated because the AG is a Republican. I've asked you to leave me be a couple times now. I have an old friend, who has since passed away, that hit and killed someone walking down the road in the middle of the night. He stayed at the scene, admitted to it, went to jail, did his time and lived with the guilt for the rest of his life. He became an alcoholic. I also know of someone that was killed by a driver and that driver, never spent a day in jail, never paid a dime in restitution and probably had no remorse. But, yeah, I just hate Republicans and I'm so biased that I want any Republican remotely associated with any crime to go to jail for it. That's why I'm interested, right? Since I disagree with you on anything and link sites that are left-leaning, I have to be biased and out to get the Republicans, because you, who post links from right-leaning sites that give all Republicans the benefit of the doubt all the time, aren't biased at all. That's the way it is, right? Anyway this is why I've asked you to leave me be. You can ask me questions, but don't expect me to respond often, if at all.

I know some folks in the State's government in Pierre and they said the AG's office is extremely stressful right now. A big part is due to the fact he is still working- not on any type of leave. :shock:

It does seem different than that Hedges situation years ago but something still seems quite a bit off with the story the AG is giving.
Frankly I think he pretty much knew that he had not hit a deer. For someone who assumed he had hit a deer he seems to have gone far beyond the norm to find the assumed hit deer. It's sad no matter what. It's at least a good thing that he evidently hadn't been drinking.

Has this ever happened before? That's the title of the thread anyways, so just guessing that'd be what he's asking. Do people often say they thought they hit a deer when it was actually another human being? I don't think I've ever heard of that one before, but not saying it hasn't happened.

The SD AG had six speeding tix from 2014 to 2018. A lot people, including myself, think he's probably lying, do you? But how do you prove something like that? When you hit a deer, you should mercifully go back and check to make sure it's dead, and that it isn't causing a hazard for other motorists. It's not a law. Given, that he's an AG, the fact that he didn't stay at the scene for law enforcement is suspicious. That would've been the 'by-the-book' thing to do.
This is a very sad deal for sure. I have heard of a driver hitting a human and trying to claim they thought it was a deer or dog but I didn't believe them in that case and don't in this one either.
This story sounds a little bit similar to when Shane Hedges who was an aide to Gov. Judy Martz was the driver in an accident where another man was killed. If I recall correctly at first he seemed to deny his level of involvement but eventually did plead guilty to the charges that were brought against him. Hopefully the SD AG will do the right thing in this case as well. The Hedges wreck was the one where Gov. Martz thought it was a good idea to wash Hedges' bloody clothes ...
The AG released his version of events yesterday. Not blow by blow, but essentially said he hit what he assumed was a deer. He stopped along the road, couldn't find anything. He went nearby to the sheriff's house and got him (apparently know each other?) They both went out, couldn't find anything. AG said he was headed in the next morning with a staffer (?), they stopped in the daylight to look, discovered the man in the ditch, called the sheriff back over. Says he didn't have a drop to drink at the event the prior night, providing lists of people to verify. Says he has sat down to be interviewed and is cooperating. Obviously a lot of threads to follow for investigators, and what you're likely to believe or disbelieve depends on your political bent and ability to be impartial. Quite different than the Martz/Hedges situation from years ago.
This goes to show that one must go with the Dan Bongino train of thought, wait 24-48 hours until much more information surfaces... So far this really changes the narrative.
It changes it from 'has anyone ever hit a person and thought it was a deer' to 'has anyone ever hit a deer and when they looked for it and didn't find it called 911 and drove to their "friend" the county sheriff's house and they both went and looked for the ^deer^ and couldn't find it and then it turns out to be a person the next day?'

Maybe Bongino meant to wait 72-96 hours? Oh, wait, it's already past that.
Why you so interested in this story?
Why are you so interested in why I'm interested in this story? Whatever I say, you're going to say I'm biased or that it's politically motivated because the AG is a Republican. I've asked you to leave me be a couple times now. I have an old friend, who has since passed away, that hit and killed someone walking down the road in the middle of the night. He stayed at the scene, admitted to it, went to jail, did his time and lived with the guilt for the rest of his life. He became an alcoholic. I also know of someone that was killed by a driver and that driver, never spent a day in jail, never paid a dime in restitution and probably had no remorse. But, yeah, I just hate Republicans and I'm so biased that I want any Republican remotely associated with any crime to go to jail for it. That's why I'm interested, right? Since I disagree with you on anything and link sites that are left-leaning, I have to be biased and out to get the Republicans, because you, who post links from right-leaning sites that give all Republicans the benefit of the doubt all the time, aren't biased at all. That's the way it is, right? Anyway this is why I've asked you to leave me be. You can ask me questions, but don't expect me to respond often, if at all.
Sorry for your loss. I have dealt with similar life experiences in my life as well. It happens way too often.

As for my responses to your posts, I didn’t realize that your posts were off limits. I guess you are entitled to post any crap that fits your agenda whether it is accurate or not.

I find it funny that you regularly comment on my posts🤷‍♂️ - and usually not in a positive manner as well. I guess that you are entitled to whine about everyone else, but nobody else can comment on your posts.

Here is the deal. Put me on ignore.
