A small singe-engine aircraft is circling the State Capitol with a message for state lawmakers: “Shame on you! Respect our vote!”

The plane is the first sign of a planned protest scheduled for this afternoon as lawmakers consider the repeal of Initiated Measure 22, South Dakota’s controversial anti-corruption and campaign finance initiative.

The tow plane began its low and slow flight circling in the skies above Pierre shortly before 11:30 a.m. CST.

The aircraft is now a familiar sight over the Capitol City. The same plane towed banners supporting the election of Dist. 24 State Senator Jeff Monroe (R-24) and several other political causes in recent years.
