Curbing conflicts of interest in campaigns
Some citizens in Dunn County have been trying to initiate a grand jury to consider the conflict of interest involved in campaign contributions to Governor Jack Dalrymple by energy companies regulated by the Industrial Commission.
They allege that such contributions are a form of bribery intended to buy influence in the Governor's decisions. The same issue has also been raised in regard to members of the Public Service Commission.
