Even if the judge was correct in ruling that Hunt broke no laws, the people do have recourse. Hunt has broken an unspoken agreement. He has transgressed our state's expectations of openness. South Dakota is not Sicily, and it is not Malaysia. We don't put up with that sort of thing.So simple but so correct and it doesn't include Larry Long, Chris Nelson, nor would it cost one penny in tax dollars...
Voters in Hunt's district should let him know by voting against him next time. Everyone else in the state should loudly complain and not let him forget it until he is out of office. No matter how just Hunt feels his campaign is, the means do not justify the end. We live in an open society that respects the rule of law and flourishes because of the interaction between the two. Let's not forget it.
