“South Dakota Senate Candidate Lives in D.C.”

So reports Politico.  (HuffPo does a quick recap of other recent residency kerfuffles.)

As I’ve mentioned before, there’s often a difference between where someone may live and their legal voting address.  This story, about Sen. candidate Larry Pressler, is a bit more meaty based on a claimed homestead tax deduction for Pressler’s “principal residence.”  Still, the tax laws and voting laws may have different standards, and you need to know more about both South Dakota and D.C. legal requirements to actually understand whether this is a problem or not.
