South Dakota state legislators are moving toward an investigation into whether two elected Democrats, one in the State House and one in the State Senate, fraudulently obtained candidacy status by lying about their residency in the state.
“Lawmakers in the South Dakota House of Representatives are pushing for the formation of a committee to investigate whether two newly elected district 27 lawmakers were eligible to run for office under the state’s Constitutional residency requirements and to explore the chain of events that led to their entrance in the state election,” according to Emmy-Award winning investigative journalist Shad Olson.
“Upon convening January 8th, sources say adoption of Mason’s Rules of Order for the 2018 legislative session will include the formation of investigative committees to explore this matter and make a decision regarding Pourier and Foster’s status,” Olson continued.
Olson, a South Dakota resident, has been following the case from the beginning. He previously reported for Big League Politics:
An independent investigation by Emmy-winning investigative reporter and author, Shad Olson and others, showed evidence supporting allegations that State Senator-Elect Red Dawn Foster and Representative-elect Peri Pourier did not meet South Dakota constitutional stipulations regarding in-state residency for prospective statewide office holders requiring two years of uninterrupted residency within state boundaries to be eligible to run.
“Given the evidence gathered, there is every reason to suspect that these individuals engaged in a deliberate effort to mislead state officials, voters and their fellow legislators that they were legally qualified to run for state office in South Dakota, when documentation shows otherwise,” Olson said.
Pourier and Foster, who both claimed in sworn candidate petition filings to be residents of South Dakota’s poverty-stricken Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, now face affidavit challenge of their swearing in when South Dakota’s bicameral legislature convenes in early January.
Now, state legislators want to take a closer look into whether the candidates violated the state’s Constitutional requirements to run for public office, which dictate that a candidate must reside within the state for two year in order to hold statewide public office.
“Mounting evidence suggests Representative-elect Peri Pourier and Senator-elect Red Dawn Foster were only recent residents of South Dakota after living in Nebraska and Colorado respectively, prior to being recruited and groomed by Democrat handlers in District 27 to seek office in the November 2018 election,” Olson’s report said.
In his previous Big League Politics report, Olson provided property and tax documents showing the candidates’ residencies in states other than South Dakota. Foster allegedly paid property taxes in the Denver area in 2018, while Pourier allegedly claimed residency in Rushville, Nebraska through January of 2018.
Olson said it is unclear whether the pair will be seated in the legislature while their colleagues investigate the matter.
“The Secretary of State, Attorney General and local authorities in multiple jurisdictions have also been apprised of evidence in this case, with formal complaints filed by citizens in Bennett and Jackson Counties,” Olson said.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
