PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota House committee examining whether Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg should be impeached for his conduct after killing a pedestrian with his car in 2020 is planning to wrap up its investigation.
But fresh allegations are swirling about the attorney general from one of Gov. Kristi Noem’s top officials.
House lawmakers met in a closed-door session to discuss how to deliver a report on their investigation. But their decision may be complicated by a letter that Noem’s public safety secretary sent to the House speaker on Wednesday. It irked some members of the committee as an intrusion into their deliberations.
Committee Chair and Speaker of the House Spencer Gosch says they will meet again on Veto Day (March 28) with the full House gathering in April.
