(SD Anti-Corruption Act Amendment)

Ethics Measure Approved to Be on South Dakota’s 2018 Ballot | U.S. News & World Report

“The South Dakota legislature used emergency powers to overturn the will of the people and repeal the South Dakota Anti-Corruption Act . Now, we’re going back to the ballot in 2018 with the South Dakota Anti-Corruption Amendment. And this time, self-serving politicians won’t be able to repeal it.

The South Dakota Anti-Corruption Amendment fights corruption and puts the voters of South Dakota back in charge. It will ban foreign money in elections, fight corruption, and hold politicians accountable.”

Did I Miss Anyone? Anything?

Do you know of a progressive candidate who is missing from the list? Should it be noted that a candidate refuses corporate PAC money? Are important endorsements up-to-date?

Tell me in the comment section below. Please include the candidate’s campaign website URL, so I may confirm where he or she stands on the issues. A page link to a candidate’s no-PAC-money statement is very helpful. Endorsement links should lead to the endorsing organization’s website or social account, for verification.

Thanks for being involved and for supporting the progressive cause.
