ND Secretary of State Jaeger Forgets We Have Tribal Colleges PDF Print E-mail

North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger sent out a letter to "all" the students at colleges in North Dakota a few weeks ago.  Why is the word "all" in quotation marks in that previous sentence?  Because Jaeger didn't include students at tribal colleges.  The letter's stated purpose is helping inform those students about voting requirements in North Dakota.  So why wouldn't Jaeger include students at tribal colleges?

Here's the form Jaeger used:

Jaeger NDUS College Student Letter 10-2012

On Thursday of this week, the Democratic-NPL Party in North Dakota let Jaeger know they knew what Jaeger had done.  They asked him to promptly send out letters to the students at Tribal colleges, too.  Jaeger sent a note back Friday say, essentially, "Nah. Maybe next time."

This wouldn't have anything to do with the fact First Americans vote, overwhelmingly, for Democrats, would it?

Or maybe Jaeger just forgot we have Tribal colleges.  Maybe his memory just isn't what it used to be.

An outright act of racism. Far too many of our fellow North Dakotans just shrug their shoulders and say " So what? They are just Indians you know."
As weak as Democrats have been, the tribes know that Republicans represent open racism and that the Democrats while doing very little, at least are not racist. Many Democrats like Burdick, Dorgan, Link were truly genuine in their beliefs that the Natives got a raw deal and deserved as much as anyone else.
