You’ve got to consider the source, but this morning, Lora Hubbel is on Gordon Howie’s blog accusing State Representative Steve Hickey of not witnessing the signatures on his petitions:
What I found interesting regarding Steve Hickey’s comment, was the response it generated from Lora Hubbel:
“When I traipsed all over District 9 to get my signatures I carried a petition for you also. I got over half of what you needed and took the to your church to get notarized. WHEN I WAS THERE THE PETITION CARRIER FOR YOUR OTHER PETITIONS said that YOUR PETITIONS WERE JUST ON THE COUNTER FOR CHURCH MEMBERS TO SIGN. NO PETITION CARRIER WAS AROUND FOR ALL OF YOUR SIGNATURES. How do I know? Your petition carrier told me so.”
I asked Steve about it, and he noted that we really need to consider the source:

Since the 2006 abortion battle we have had and have very specific policies and protocols on my and other petition signing at the church. This is garbage at the highest level and the allegation will immediately vaporize if they want to take it to the level of asking all 54 of my petition signers. Until that point I guess it’s my word up against the word of Hubbel and Howie. South Dakota can decide.
Steve also directed me to his further comments under the Howie post, where he noted:
