Janklow: I Have Terminal Brain Cancer

Janklow: I Have Terminal Brain Cancer
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Former South Dakota Governor and Congressman Bill Janklow has made an announcement about his health.

The longtime South Dakota lawmaker says he has terminal brain cancer and doesn't have long to live.  Janklow says it covers his entire brain and he's receiving treatment at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. 

Janklow has held many political positions in South Dakota. In 1975, he was elected to serve as the South Dakota Attorney General. In 1978, he was first elected as the Governor of South Dakota. He was re-elected in 1982 to that position.

When he was term limited out of office in 1986, Janklow worked as a lawyer in private practice. But he jumped back into the political ring in 1994, when he was elected governor again. He was re-elected in 1998 and is the only person in state history to serve 16 years as governor.

Following his time in Pierre, Janklow was elected to be South Dakota's Congressman for the U.S. House of Representatives. He held that position until 2003, when he was involved in a deadly crash.

In the August 2003 crash, Janklow ran a stop sign, hit and killed motorcyclist Randy Scott. A Moody County jury found him guilty of second-degree manslaughter and he served 100 days in jail.

Janklow has since returned to private practice as a lawyer in Sioux Falls.

During a news conference announcing his cancer diagnosis, Janklow said that he's enjoyed a "heck of a ride" in South Dakota and teared up as he talked about his accomplishments in the state.  He says he would do everything the same, except he would stop at the stop sign where the deadly crash occurred.
