Rep. Jon Hansen, Hypocrite of the Week

I love it when Republican SD Legislators argue against out-of-state influence when it is convenient for their agenda. Hansen said this about out-of-state petitioners and petitions that originate out of state;

We need to end the stream of lawless, out-of-state special interests trying to use our state as a guinea pig for their political agendas.

But Jon takes NO ISSUE with money and help from out-of-state if it supports the GOP’s twisted agenda;

Of course, such venom is reserved for organizations that threaten South Dakota’s GOP super majority. It was perfectly fine for out-of-state special interest group Americans for Prosperity (and ALEC), backed by the Koch Brothers, to wage an aggressive battle against IM 22 to the tune of $650,000, not to mention the steady legislative influence of far-right Christian groups such as the Family Heritage Alliance.

 Not only is Jon a hypocrite, he is also extremely ignorant.
