THUNE BRIBING COLLEGE STUDENTS

This incredible story was broken by our friends at Daily Caucus. According to Ben Hanten at Daily Caucus:
"Students 4 Thune is a website paid for and authorized by John Thune for U.S. Senate, yet it's not linked up on his official campaign website. A banner at the top of the page says, 'Time for a change. Time for a new voice. Time to win an Apple iPod.' The link takes you to a sign-up form for the campaign. In order to win the iPod, you must sign up and you must be present at a Thune event to win. Effectively, they are offering up to $300 for students' support.A "whois" search reveals that Students 4 Thune is, in fact, owned by Thune and that the website was just registered October 2."

Again, courtesy of Ben here is the South Dakota Law being broken by Thune:

THE LAW

South Dakota Codified Law says it is a class two misdemeanor for anyone to "make any gift, loan, or promise, offer, procurement, or agreement as aforesaid to, for, or with any person in order to induce such person to procure or endeavor to procure the election of any person, or the vote of any voter at any election."

This is just unbelievable. When will these guys ever learn. I guess Laura Ingraham's visit must have inspired them. Will Thune ever take responsibility for any of the lawlessness associated with his campaign.

Great Job Daily Caucus.
