While some Republicans try to smear Sioux Falls mayoral candidate Mike Huether for being–horror of horrors–a Democrat and using Democrats to help him get elected–another group has gone completely cukoo for Cocoa Puffs. Their charge? Mike Huether is a member of the “Illuminati” and using “Illuminati” symbols in his campaign, whatever those might be.
And then we proceed to Exhibit B, from a recent commenter on an early post here on the MBS announcing Mike’s run for mayor:
Let me just come right out and say it. This is the stupidest attack on a candidate in the history of South Dakota elections. You might not like Mike because you disagree with his vision for the city, that he’s a banker, that he’s a Democrat, that he plays tennis, or that he’s from Yankton. But a believer in the New World Order and the Jewish Banking Conspiracy and the Trilateral Commission and all that debunked b.s. from America’s past? That’s just crazy talk.
I hope Dr. No will denounce these supporters and address real concerns facing Sioux Falls. Or will Kermit Staggers’ first order of business as mayor be to ban all Proctor and Gamble products because they might have the old “man in the moon” logo on them?
