Following up on my story yesterday on the Koch brothers’ revving up to oppose Initiated Measure 22, the Anti-Corruption Act, Jonathan Ellis notes that the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and the Retailers Association are joining Americans for Prosperity’s effort to prevent South Dakotans from voting for lobbying reform, a statewide ethics commission, and a voluntary small-donation public financing system for political campaigns.
Apparently, they’re also planning to park airplanes on our doors:
Ben Lee, the chairman of Defeat 22 and the state director for Americans for Prosperity, said the coalition planned to start an advertising blitz on Friday that included radio ads, mailers and door hangars to begin educating voters about the measure [Jonathan Ellis, “Political Heavyweights Join Forces to Oppose Ballot Measure,” that Sioux Falls paper, 2016.07.08].
Door hangars—I want to see that landing! But I’m going to need some stronger hinges.
