Video: Senator Heitkamp’s Chief Of Staff Tries To Bully Fargo News Station

Valley News Live’s Chris Berg has been very critical of Senator Heidi Heitkamp of late, specifically on the issue of the child abuse scandal at the Spirit Lake Reservation.

After Getting Called Out, Suddenly Heidi Heitkamp Cares About Spirit Lake Scandal

Earlier this week Rep. Kevin Cramer called out Senator Heidi Heitkamp over her position on the child abuse scandals at Spirit Lake.

Cramer: “Politics” Keeps Heitkamp Silent On Spirit Lake Child Abuse

Nearly Seven Months After Election, One ND County Found To Have More Votes Than Voters

An error apparently due to a hand-counting error, one that wasn’t caught by state authorities but rather the federal courts, saw one North Dakota counting 300 more votes than there were voters in the county according to the Grand Forks Herald.

During North Dakota’s Senate race last year then-candidate Heidi Heitkamp and her political party made a big issue out of her opponent Rick Berg’s wealth.
