Kelly Hepler (Left) possibly thanking someone for a lobbying gift

Had to chuckle, shake my head, and let out a long sigh when I saw this story about our new director the other day;

Hepler, who has worked with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game since 1979, was among several public officials in Alaska accused in August of not reporting gifts from a lobbying organization known as the Kenai River Sportfishing Association, . . .
While he was let off on a technicality, it is still unknown what exactly he received as a gift. He is probably pretty happy about the fact that in SD, with our extremely closed state government, he won’t have to worry about getting busted for that kind of activity here. Accept as many gifts as you want, we will never know.

  1. I also laughed at the fact the governor had to point out that Kelly was a ‘Catholic’ in his press release about his appointment.

    Does that make him a better hunter? Probably not, just a better fisherman! BAAHAHHAHAHA!

    If you can cover up Benda what hell are a few small gifts! It has gotten so bad in SD that no one even cares anymore about the corruption.
