The Yes on Amendment V forces are trying to hide the fact that they’ve taken ridiculous amounts of money from out of state to promote this awful measure, and have sent out an appeal to raise money from South Dakotans.
And they have a couple of rich guys making the pitch.
I’m not sure where to start on this thing. Rich guys Joe Kirby from Sioux Falls, and Stan Adelstein of Rapid City start out the letter by stating “if you are a principled Republican like us…” Which seems a bit ironic. I can’t speak to Mr. Kirby’s background, but principled isn’t a word I’d use in the other case. Stan Adelstein has tried to buy more races than a gambling addict at the race track, with a pile of that money going towards Democrats.
Regardless, in case you did want to read it, here’s the letter where rich guys need money. In case you’ve thrown it out already.
