Hunt Will File Finance Report; No Names

November 3, 2006, 11:33 AM by Lou Raguse

Hunt Will File Finance Report; No Names
The group against the abortion ban is calling for an investigation into questionable campaign donations on the other side.

The Campaign for Healthy Families wrote a letter to Attorney General Larry Long asking him to investigate abortion bill sponsor Rep. Roger Hunt's corporation, "Promising Future, Inc."

Promising Future collected and donated $750,000 to the "Yes for Life" group. But Hunt did not file a campaign finance report, which the secretary of state says is required by law if that money was collected for the purpose of influencing a ballot issue.

Hunt says he is planning to file a report today or tomorrow, but it will not include the name or names of who gave money to the corporation. Hunt says the law is vague, and he doesn't believe that information is required. 

Hunt now claims the $750,000 was all donated by one South Dakota person, but we won't say who, citing attorney-client privilage.

But Hunt admits $500,000 of the $750,000 came before Oct. 28, meaning a finance report needed to be filed by Oct. 31.

We'll find out more from Secretary of State Chris Nelson later today on KELOLAND News.
