To the Editor:

Let us take a look at Billie Sutton's ads and voting record.

I'm getting tired of his misleading. In a blatant attempt to mislead South Dakotans, latest ad portrays long-time Democrat Peggy Glover as a Republican. She is the wife of former Democratic State Senator Tom Glover and has repeatedly donated to Senator Sutton's campaign over the eight years.

Billie says he is pro-life but he voted Nay on HB 1101. This bill would increase the penalty for performing an abortion of an unborn child capable of feeling pain.

Billie attended a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood. He voted against the "Bathroom Bill" HB 1008. This supports the LGBT community. This bill protects children in school from a person of the opposite sex sharing the bathroom, locker and shower with them when the person of opposite sex is "gender confused."

Sutton brought legislation for state-funded pre-K education. This program would focus on children from birth to age 5 attending a state funded preschool which would cost approximately $5,000 per child. This bill was defeated.

Billie has been in the state Senate for the past eight years and has never passed a bill of any consequence or importance.
