It is being reported in the national media the deeper ambitions of the Jason Gant financers, RSLC. For those who might need a refresher course here it is. In the election seasons prior to Jason’s ascension to the Secretary of State’s office in Pierre he was South Dakota’s leader of the Republican Senate Leadership Committee (RSLC). We here at SouthDaCola.com have discussed at length during 2012. In these articles we showed how the RSLC was dumping major money into their chosen equally right wing candidates. These candidates are now running constitutional offices in Pierre and operating as circuit court judges. These people are in office only because Jason Gant and the RSLC gave them the money and cover to win.
Major media outlets in presenting the RSLC to the broader audience are still missing the power and funders behind the RSLC. The RSLC is not a Republican Party operation. When we first look into it we thought so also. The power and money is the Koch Brothers and their arm: ALEC. Jason Gant and his ilk in the legislature are financed by out of state rich benefactors who care nothing of South Dakota or its people. They only care about power. The Kochs are accomplishing it through RedMap, The RSLC Redistricting Project.
The About page on the RedMap Project page tells us much:
What is redistricting and why does it matter?
At the conclusion of the 2010 national census, congressional seats will be reapportioned to each state. The states with a shrinking population will lose congressional seats and states with a population boom will gain seats. A massive effort to redraw state legislative and congressional lines will take place according to each state’s laws. The party controlling that effort controls the drawing of the maps – shaping the political landscape for the next 10 years. In 38 states, governors and state legislators play a determining role in the redistricting process.
What is REDMAP?
REDMAP (REDistricting Majority Project) is a program of the RSLC dedicated to winning state legislative seats that will have a critical impact on congressional redistricting in 2011.

Look at the bravado in the above quote. RedMap is currently bragging about their successes in stealing the 2010 and 2012 elections from the citizens of their states. Read their bragging points now on line. Nowhere in the bragging does your voter rights ever get presented.
Senator Stan Adelstein of Rapid City has begun the process to clean up the SD Secretary of State office but the needs are much bigger. We have a nation of gerrymandered states including South Dakota. We currently have a one party state in South Dakota. South Dakota is a cheap state. We live in a state where politians are easily purchased. Look at the finance records now coming on-line at the SOS website. We will be researching these records and will be reporting our findings. With these records we will be updating our list of ALEC members who are working for their out of state masters. You will be seeing who has allowed their South Dakota principles compromised by the Koch Brothers money. Senator Stan needs our help to bring South Dakota fairness and sanity to Pierre. We at SouthDaCola.com intend to help him.
