On July 1 held a fundraiser/ campaign kick off with his close friend, Steve King. The big question must be why Dan Lederman, a person that helps run the Rushmore PAC, wants to focus on what an Iowa republican has to say? Shouldn't he be getting South Dakotans to come and support him? It might be that his business is located in Iowa. The fact that he grew up in Iowa. Or it could be that he truly believes in the things Iowa Representative Steve King has too say.
Lederman must believe in calling immigrants dogs:
King comparing immigration laws to picking a dog: “You put out a beacon like the Statue of Liberty and who comes here? The most vigorous from every country that has donated legal immigrants to America. The cream of the crop. We’ve always had bird dogs around our place. In our family there’s a black lab and white lab, a yellow lab, and my brother has a chocolate lab. Well, you go in and you look at a litter of pups, and you watch them. You watch how they play — they run around a little bit — and what do you want? You want a good bird dog, and you want one that’s gonna be aggressive? Pick the one that’s the friskiest, the one that’s in games the most — not the one that’s over there sleeping in the corner. You want a pet to sit on the couch, pick the one that’s sleeping in the corner. That’s — so, you get the pick of the litter, you got yourself a pretty good bird dog. We got the pick of every donor civilization on the planet because it’s hard to get here; you had to be inspired to come. We got the vigor from the planet to come to America. Whichever generation it was, and then we taught our children that same thing.”We know that Lederman hates laws limiting certain dog breeds and enjoys MMA fighting. Maybe he stands with Steve King that dog fighting is an acceptable form of entertainment.
King made the remarks during a tele-town hall meeting last month, in response to a constituent who asked why King had voted against a legislative measure that would make it a federal crime to allow a minor to attend an animal fighting event. In his statement, King likened watching animal fighting to sports such as boxing, and said:
"When the legislation that passed in the farm bill that says that it’s a federal crime to watch animals fight or to induce someone else to watch an animal fight but it’s not a federal crime to induce somebody to watch people fighting, there’s something wrong with the priorities of people that think like that."He is a candidate that doesn't believe there is a teacher shortage, supports discrimination of LGBT, and loves having the state pay for him to attend ALEC events that allow him to write laws to support his business.
You can instead vote for a person that has lived in Union County for more than 40 years. Her husband in a third generation dairy farmer living in Union County. She attends and travels to communities in the entire District 16 (instead of only staying in North Sioux City). She works to protect the family farmer, education, and all of the people that live in the district. She is not going to use a win to discriminate, she is not going to support tax payers money going to partisan trips, she is not going to support the continued attack on South Dakota education. Ann Tornberg deserves your vote District 16.
