Lest anyone forget, next week – the 17th to be specific – Daniel “Robocall” Willard gets his day in court with the next phase in his criminal trial for violation of campaign finance laws as this chairman of the South Dakota Young Republicans & the Secretary of the South Dakota Liberty Caucus pursued his vendetta this last year against Republican office holders.
The word I’m getting behind the scenes is that this should be quite the interesting hearing, where the state is going to make it’s case against Mr. Willard, and as I understand, we may hear of other names involved in his whole scheme.
Remember, this wasn’t a legitimate political effort where people stood up for their beliefs. This was an anonymous and allegedly illegal political campaign where they purposefully attempted to avoid being accountable for their words in the harsh light of day. I mean, If they were so damned noble, why did they have to hide?
If there are others like Willard who serves (or at least formerly served) as the chair of the SD Young Republicans, or any County Party officeholders who were involved in this, they need to be relieved of their jobs, and stripped of their titles. Period.
If there others involved in all of this – and I suspect there were – names should be named, and people should be shamed.
