Long-time reporter remembers Bill Janklow
Former South Dakota governor and congressman Bill Janklow's body will lie in state at the Capitol in Pierre on Tuesday. His funeral is scheduled for Wednesday morning in Sioux Falls. Janklow died Thursday at age 72 of brain cancer. In 2002, Janklow was elected to Congress, but he never completed the term. He was convicted of manslaughter for his role in a traffic accident that killed Minnesotan Randy Scott. Janklow served 100 days behind bars. Before that, Janklow was South Dakota's longest serving governor.
MPR's Phil Picardi spoke with South Dakota Public Broadcasting News Director Cara Hetland, who followed Janklow's career for many years.
