Billie Sutton shoots and scores! His new video ad goes after corruption in Pierre and shows something his Republican opponent Kristi Noem: a voting record of actually doing something about the problem:
The law Sutton authored is his amendment to 2017 SB 54, which does exactly what he said: prevents candidates from converting campaign contributions to personal use. (Hey, Dennis Daugaard: have you spent that million dollars yet?) Kristi Noem has nothing like that in her quiver. Go ahead and try, Kristi-lovers: tell us one law she’s passed in response to corruption to reform campaign finance in South Dakota.
And watch that imagery: EB-5! GEAR UP! (Both scandals blew up with deaths by firearms in his district.) And smiling, friendly, honest South Dakotans “all working together” in good old Burke versus all those self-interested lobbyists haunting the grey, faceless Capitol. “This town”—Pierre—”needs to work like yours and mine.” Dang: that’s good writing!
