Secretary Gant calls ballot pamphlet accusations baseless


South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant says accusations that he broke the law by not adding opposition statements to voter information pamphlets are baseless.
Secretary Gant spoke at an adult education course in Newell Wednesday in an effort to help people better understand the pros and cons of amendments and measures on the November ballot.  He says it's his job to help inform voters about the issues by preparing a voter info pamphlet.  Senator Stan Adelstein of Rapid City says Secretary Gant not only didn't do his job, but he says he broke the law because four of the constitutional amendments did not have opposition statements.
Secretary Gant told KOTA Territory News, "It's completely unfounded."  He says he followed the law and everyone had ample opportunities to write an opposition statement.
Adelstein wants a new set of pamphlets distributed.   He says he is consulting with attorneys.
