Not that this is a surprise but the Argus editorial board has come out calling for the secret “donor” that funneled $750,000 to the Vote Yes for Life campaign to be identified by Roger Hunt.
Hunt must follow the law and disclose who donated the money. It’s a matter of openness. Democracy. And honesty.
Voters have a right to know who’s trying to influence them. Hunt has no right to keep that secret.
Echoing the opinion of South Dakota’s Secretary of state, the members of the Argus’ editorial board are just the latest in a growing number to call for the identity of the shell company Promising Future’s secret donor/proprietor.
It seems pretty obvious from this debacle that attorney Roger Hunt’s legal knowledge doesn’t quite extend into the realm of campaign finance laws.
