I'm still waiting to see this story hit the national news.
Has anyone seen it anywhere other than South Dakota news sources?
It's not being carried in South Texas. That said, though, it may be that we've got bigger fish to fry here. We have a city council here in San Antonio that has been under serious fire.
Two -- count 'em -- TWO demonRAT city councilmen have been charged by the US Attorney with taking bribes to award big city contracts.
We have yet another city council member who's been under allegations that he and the judge he's been -- ahem -- romantic with -- was awarded an undue portion of public defender cases. That, and he billed the city for hours he never worked.
We also have a state leg member who's been under allegations that he's been building a mafia like organization that controls EVERYTHING on the city's south side.
None of this has made national news, either.

Not likely to get much national play, I'm afraid. The "other" Dakota fraud is NORTH Dakota, where the incumbent Democrat hired David Strauss as his campaign manager. You remember Strauss? He was the one who orchestrated Gore's Buddhist temple visit? The incumbent Dem is so cocky that when he was confronted about, he was supposed to have said: "Find me a Buddhist temple in North Dakota, and I'll go there!" This has, unfortunately, gotten NO play, national or otherwise.
