South Dakota GOP repeals voter-approved anti-corruption law -

'Curd, his colleagues and a lobbying group filed suit against the law last year in a South Dakota circuit court. '

'"It was an attempt to fundamentally transform the South Dakota citizen legislature," he said. '

'"The state motto in South Dakota is 'Under God, The People Rule.' The fight against corruption will not end until elected leaders abide by that principle."'

'On Tuesday night, less than 24 hours before the vote, demonstrators from Represent South Dakota projected the words "Respect Our Vote" onto the state capitol. ', "State Republicans' decision to effectively overturn the referendum results also comes on the heels of a controversial attempt by House Republicans in Washington to gut an independent ethics watchdog."
