Former South Dakota Gov. and Rep. William Janklow died Thursday after a short battle with brain cancer. Janklow is remembered as a combatant politician who many loved to hate. His political career ended after a car accident that killed a Minnesota motorcyclist. Janklow returned to the public eye last summer, though, when he threatened to sue the Army Corps of Engineers over flooding on the Missouri River.
