From the Associated Press this afternoon:
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A judge on Monday decided in favor of State Rep. Roger Hunt of Brandon in a ruling that keeps secret the name of an anonymous donor who gave $750,000 to the 2006 abortion ban campaign in South Dakota.
During the 2006 campaign, Hunt formed Promising Future Inc., which had one shareholder who made three separate $250,000 donations to Vote Yes For Life.
Since then Secretary of State Chris Nelson has argued that the name should be revealed, calling Promising Future a "shell" corporation formed to hide the identity.
Caldwell had dismissed the case in August 2007. Nelson appealed to the state Supreme Court, which sent it back to Caldwell.
Voters rejected the 2006 ballot issue 56 percent to 44 percent.
I’ll be interested to learn the logic behind the decision. In the meantime, what do you think about this?
