Munsterman for Governor campaign manager Pat Powers uses his blog to take more digs at gubernatorial opponent Dave Knudson, this time criticizing Knudson's support for increasing gas taxes and vehicle registration fees to address South Dakota's budget shortfall.
Never mind that Knudson may be the only fiscal realist among a field of GOP fantasists who think $150 million shortfall will go away with wishful thinking coupled with continued quiet acceptance of federal money. What I find interesting is that of all the members of the Long-term Highway Needs and Department of Transportation Agency Review committee who Knudson predicts will vote today in favor of those increases, Powers leaps at the chance to single out his boss's political opponent for criticism.
But Powers assures us his site is his opinion only, not a campaign website.
To his credit, Powers follows up with a list of committee members (after I send him the link in a comment). He pre-emptively blames any vote for an increase on "Liberal Republicans on the panel" and those darn minority Democrats.
