Janklow Criticizes GOP Vote Effort
October 12, 2004, 5:05 PM
Bill Janklow's commenting on the resignation of six people connected with the state Republican Party over absentee ballot applications.
The former governor and congressman says the national GOP is encouraging campaign workers to cheat. He says his ire is directed at the Republican Party's Victory operation, which helps register people and get them to the polls.
Janklow says his problem with the organization goes back to 2002 when he was a candidate for the US House.
Jason Glodt with the Republican Party says the absentee ballot problem was an honest mistake and has been handled, and that cheating won't be allowed.
Janklow served 100 days in jail for causing an accident that killed a man. He says his comments have nothing to do with his friendship with Democratic Senator Tom Daschle, who's in a close race with Republican John Thune.
