CP of South Dakota calls for Impeachment hearings

For Immediate Release:

Constitution Party of South Dakota response to the travesty committed upon the voters of South Dakota due to the repeal of IM-22.

There were some absolutely heroic efforts by a few Legislators that displayed the utmost of integrity in making repeated, courageous attempts to force their colleagues to do the right thing on behalf of the people of South Dakota. Unfortunately, they were sadly far-outnumbered by a majority ruled by men, instead of by law and ethics.

Perhaps there can't be a more shameful example of why our Founding Fathers were rightly so adamant in creating a Constitutional Republic restrained by the rule of law instead of a Democracy ruled by a mob of men.

Our Legislature did not save us from possibly an unconstitutional citizens' initiative measure. Instead,  those that voted to strip the will of our people's voice at the ballot box, did so, with a complete and arrogant disregard of their duty to allow due process.

The time to honor your oaths should be done as soon as there may be an infringement,  not after a 2-year process of bringing it to the ballot and certainly not only after the voters pass it.

To add egregious further insults to injury, our State Legislature:

1. Created a new, likely unconstitutional bill of their own in order to reverse the will of South Dakota voters.

2. Defiantly slapped an Emergency Clause on it in a boldly unconstitutional misuse of power.

3. The worst part is this new bill was voted on and passed by at least a dozen Legislators that absolutely refused to recuse themselves even after repeated requests to do so due to obvious and direct conflicts of interest.

Therefore, the Constitution Party of South Dakota hereby extends an invitation to the South Dakota Libertarian Party,  the South Dakota Democrat Party and all concerned citizens in South Dakota to join us in a united call upon our SD House of Representatives to begin the impeachment process of at least those members that should not have even voted on HB1069 and/or had the responsibility of barring known members from voting due to an obvious conflict of interest.

Tyranny only runs rampant when good men do nothing.  Together, we can do much better!

Lori Stacey elected Regional Co-Chairman of the Midwest for the Constitution Party


At the National Committee Meeting held in Salt Lake City directly following the 2016 National Convention, new party national and regional chairmen/co-chairmen were elected.

Frank Fluckiger was re-elected as National Chairman and Jennifer Young of Wyoming was elected as National Vice Chairman.

South Dakota's State Party Chairman, Lori Stacey, was elected as Regional Co-Chairman for the Constitution Party's Midwestern Region!  Lori will be sharing the responsibility over the 12 Midwestern state parties with newly elected Regional Chairman, Randy Stufflebeam of Illinois.

Lori and Randy have split-up their concentrated areas of focus by dividing the region in half.  Each will be concentrating their support efforts on 6 states.  Lori Stacey's primary 6-state focus over her new 4-year term will be the following states:  North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa and Kansas.

Darrell Castle & Scott Bradley become 2016 Presidential Ticket

There was a competitive field of 8 great candidates for President that qualified to have their names entered into nomination at our National Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Constitution Party loyalist and a member of our party since its founding back in 1992, Darrell Castle, won the nomination for President on the first ballot.  He chose an excellent running mate in Scott Bradley, the Author of "To Preserve The Nation".   Delegates overwhelmingly voted to accept Darrell's choice of Scott Bradley for Vice Presidential nominee.

The campaign's website has just launched at www.castle2016.com.  Please go to campaign website often and show your support for our rock solid, constitutionist ticket for President of these United States!!!

For only the 2nd time in Idaho's state history, a party other than the Democrats and Republicans will be holding a primary in Idaho.  The primary election will be held on March 8th, 2016.

The Republican-dominated Idaho legislature passed a bill requiring taxpayers to have to pay for the state's party primaries and that state parties would be required to hold a party primary in order to get their Presidential nominee on the general election ballot in November.

Three Constitution Party candidates have submitted the required paperwork and will appear on the ballot in March.  The candidates are:  JR Myers, Scott Copeland and Patrick Ockander
