To the Editor:

South Dakota will be electing a new governor. Candidate Marty Jackley, current attorney general, bears watching with extreme prejudice. Mr. Jackley's infamous reputation letting fellow elected and appointed officials skate on felonious conduct should raise red flags. The EB-5, GEAR UP and Redfield Sunflower plant scams are documented proof of red flag cases that cost our state over a hundred million, no criminals brought to justice. Ultimate red flag however and little known fact is, Mr. Jackley's acceptance to the Aspen Institute Rodel Fellowship class of 2011. Why should this be of concern you are wondering?

The Aspen Institute is an ultra liberal think tank based in Washington, D.C., that promotes radical environmentalism and views America as a nation plagued by deep-seated "structural racism."

The Aspen Institute is directly funded by none other than George Soros and his Open Society Foundations. Aspen Institute is filled with Soros sympathizers. Ask yourselves, what good can possibly come to South Dakota from a candidate who has anything to do with Soros and his liberal think tanks? Afore written information is easily confirmed by Google and a mouse click. Why risk South Dakota's future with Jackley embracing Soros liberalism?
