But they aren’t the only ones.
The Cass County GOP has apparently asked Kintner specifically to NOT come to their booth at the Cass County Fair.
Leavenworth St. has heard that the party will not be officially taking a position about Kintner resigning until after an executive board meeting.
But that they don’t want him anywhere near their booth at the fair is…unprecedented?
Kintner is in a bad spot these days, but it does not seem that walking around a county fair would be the greatest idea anyway. Not a lot of upside.

And on the Kintner front, Governor Ricketts, and those in his office who read Leavenworth St. , apparently appreciated yesterday’s note that the Governor gave no real reason for Kintner to resign, other than the NADC rule-breaking.
OWH’s Joe Duggan tweeted out recently that Ricketts thinks Kintner should resign, “because he can no longer be effective as a lawmaker.”
Again, does that hit all the notes?
Or is that just supposed to encompass everything he’s done, without getting into the details — gory and not.
In any case, funny that Duggan has created the hashtag, “#cybersexscandal”. One click for all of your breaking cybersexscandal news!
Not part of his Opus?
Nebraska mourns the death of longtime philanthropist Dick Holland.
Curious, that the Omaha World-Herald chose to completely ignore Holland’s penchant for contributing to Democrat candidates and causes — pretty much up until his death at 95 years of age.
Holland is of course free to do what he wants with his money. But one would think that the local fishwrap would at least acknowledge, in a sentence or two, Holland’s very public involvement in Democrat politics, as well as the arts, education, etc.
Sort of funny that OWH reporter Joe Duggan felt it necessary to tweet his own edit to the article, since the writers and editors chose to ignore this facet of Holland’s life.

Thanks for the Twitter, I guess.
Bizarre stuff with the latest rumors swirling around the death of Nebraskan and DNC staffer Seth Rich.
Wikileaks’ Julian Assange essentially gave a big wink that Rich was the one who sent the damning DNC emails to Wikileaks — the basis for the resignation of DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz right before the start of the Democrat convention.
That Rich was murdered without being robbed isn’t helping the speculation.
Considering his family is still mourning, any of the speculation, especially locally, would hopefully be kept reasonable.
And Leavenworth St. also sends its condolences to the family and friends of longtime OWH sports writer Steve Pivovar who passed away last night as well.
Always enjoyed reading him. He will be missed.
Because that is how you stay up to date on the talk of Nebraska politics!
