Sneaky Democrat Uses Secret Internet


PIERRE, S.D. - Republicans have accused Democratic U.S. House candidate Stephanie Herseth of maintaining a secret Web page to receive campaign donations raised from ads on liberal groups' Internet sites.

But a Herseth campaign official scoffed at the charge, saying the Web page is not secret and can be found easily with a standard search of the Internet.

Herseth faces Republican Larry Diedrich in a June 1 special election to fill the vacancy left when Bill Janklow resigned as South Dakota's lone member of the U.S. House.

Jason Glodt, executive director of the South Dakota Republican Party, said the Herseth campaign arranged the special Internet donation site to prevent most South Dakotans from knowing about Herseth's relationship with such liberal groups.

The Herseth Web page takes campaign donations from people directed there from Internet sites called "blogs," which are online bulletin boards that feature journals, opinionated articles and messages.

"There's a reason she's got that secret site. She doesn't want to advertise the fact she's doing this," Glodt said Thursday.

Now I've done a little research on this, and I've discovered that this Herseth character is running a secret headquarters at 3300 South Holly Avenue
Sioux Falls SD 57104. That's probably inside a hollowed out volcano.

But that's not all. Apparently Herseth is plotting the downfall of Larry Diedrich. Something must be done.

Incidentally, I often think I maintain a secret website.
