Democrat Candidate Billie Sutton apparently accepted a challenge from the Rapid City Journal promised to release all of his emails while he has been a state legislator, a total of nearly eight years’ worth. and is now getting called out on it, because… because he has’t exactly delivered:
After he proposed legislation to expose government emails to public review, state senator and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Billie Sutton accepted a challenge from the Journal on Oct. 26 to release the emails from his legislative account.
But he has not yet delivered. His attempts to divulge his emails have been stalled, he has since said, by Legislative Research Council concerns about the potential release of confidential information.
Sutton, of Burke, added that because of the time involved and the lack of help from the LRC, he will release only a couple of weeks’ worth of emails.
“Promises made… but not delivered.”
Not exactly the narrative a candidate for Governor wants to communicate.
