North Dakota girl mourns....

Is the second time going to be the charm for Republican state representative, Dave Weiler??

Last March, he was arrested for beating his wife. And then Governor, John
Hoeven (along with House Majority Leader Al Carlson) promoted him to a vice chairman position on an interim legislative committee.


One year later (aka NOW) Weiler is at it again-- last night he attacked his (soon-to-be) ex-wife in their home and fled the scene. Reports state that Nicole Weiler suffered cuts and bruising on her face. Rep. Weiler has been charged with "Simple assault."

I would just like to know where Gov. Hoeven (likely our next state senator-- sob) plans to promote Dave "Wife beating" Weiler now??

I left him a voicemail asking that VERY question -- 701-328-2200- if you'd like to do the same.

In other news...

In Bismarck, a woman was beaten to death early this morning ... by her husband... in front of their 3 year old son.

I do not know where to go with all this anger and grief.

I understand your story works better for advancing your democrat agenda, but Hoeven had nothing to do with Weiler getting a committee assignment.

Hoeven has been a huge advocate for expanding penalties for violent and sexual offenses.

Ridiculous! Gov. Hoeven doesn't appoint or promote legislative members to committees. Do your research before you spread your slander.

As Gov, he has authority to step up in those situations and ask Rep Weiler to step down. He chose to look the other way and even to 'condone' a promotion.

I consider that a failure.

I'm going to have to agree with the two anons above, Hoeven has nothing to do with Weiler's promotion, and you're probably going to sound pretty silly in that voicemail.
