"Is it illegal? No, it's not illegal, but ... I do think it does raise serious questions that only you have to answer," Janklow said.
Hajek declined to recuse herself from the vote, saying she would not discuss her husband's clients with Janklow and that she did not know all of them."I did raise that issue with you, and I continue to have those concerns," she said.
