South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem has enthusiastically taken up President Donald Trump’s efforts to contest the results of the presidential election, including asking for online donations to “help us bring it home for the president.”
The problem is – the donations are set to flow into her own reelection account.
Noem’s solicitation includes a box that donors can check to cover processing fees so that all of their money goes to “Kristi for Governor” – her campaign committee.
Noem didn’t respond to requests for comment on how the money would be used and her campaign committee chairman declined to comment.
