Outing Ex-Democrats
South Dakota conservative group names ex-Democrats in GOP
The Associated Press - October 10, 2017

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - A conservative group's review of voter registration data in South Dakota says about 1 in 7 Republicans in the state Legislature previously registered to vote as a Democrat.

The Argus Leader reports that the South Dakota Citizens for Liberty named the lawmakers Monday as part of a legislative scorecard report. A group official says the party switches raise questions about lawmakers' commitment to conservative ideology.

Several lawmakers have owned up to their previous party affiliations, saying they changed after the Democratic Party became "too liberal." Others, like Republican Rep. Jean Hunhoff of Yankton, have denied the report of their voting record and say they're being unfairly targeted.

South Dakota Republican Party Chair Dan Lederman says he doesn't see the party changes as shameful, but rather something to be proud of.
