SD Lawmaker In The Middle Of a Social Media Blowup Over Missing Girl
(KVHT) – A South Dakota state lawmaker has been hit with a no-trespass order after a social media blowup over her activism in a missing girl case. According to reports the dispute began when one of Republican state Senator Lynne DiSanto’s constituents accused her of using Serenity Dennard’s disappearance for personal gain. Serenity was 9 when she walked away in February from the Black Hills Children’s Home, and she remains missing despite multiple searches. Since then, DiSanto has launched a website and Facebook page about the case. Police say Patricia Kassner, of Box Elder, posted messages accusing DeSanto of exploiting the girl’s disappearance. After DiSanto replied that she’d stop by Kassner’s to talk, Kassner obtained a no-trespass order from police. DiSanto told police she didn’t intend her message as a threat.
