State senator Dan Lederman is a flaming slimeball: he wields lawyers like the Adam Lanzas and the James Holmeses employ firearms.
Even the editorial board of the Pierre Capital Journal can't seem to get its head around it:
Heard any really bad ideas lately from the South Dakota Legislature? We have. If corporations want to whisper sweet nothings in the ears of South Dakota legislators, let them come to Pierre and follow the process our Legislature has set in place for lobbying. South Dakotans should not foot the bill so that our lawmakers can go off and flirt with ALEC.WNAX goes on:
Senator Dan Lederman of Dakota Dunes, a republican, has been a member of ALEC for some time. Some democratic legislators have called ALEC an “extremist group.”Note the small 'r' and the tiny 'd' in that print.
Apparently South Dakota voters love having their courts fielding frivolous lawsuits from party apparatchiks so there's no time for hearing grievances of environmental degradation visited on the state every day while burning up newspaper column inches that would otherwise cover red state collapse.
Wake the fuck up.
