It Wasn’t the Governor’s Job to Announce the Tax Commissioner’s DUI

North Dakota’s Democrats and their propagandists in the media are trying to manufacture a phony-baloney controversy over Governor Doug Burgum knowing about Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger’s DUI for weeks before Rauschenberger himself announced the arrest to the public. Here’s the Democrats banging that drum on Twitter: North Dakotans deserve to know why this news wasn’t

Tax Commissioner Lying During DUI Arrest Is Unacceptable

Yesterday the North Dakota Highway Patrol released to the public video of Tax Commissioner Ryan Raushchenberger’s arrest for DUI back in September.

Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger Is Testing North Dakota’s New Attitudes on Addiction

Ryan Rauschenberger, North Dakota’s Republican tax commissioner, is an extremely intelligent and competent man. A dedicated public servant. On a personal level, he’s a warm and genuinely nice person.

Keith Kempenich’s bill to change the process by which oil regulations are passed by the the Industrial Commission.
