South Dakota House hiring lawyer to guide Ravnsborg impeachment

November 11, 2021

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota lawmakers weighing impeachment of the state’s attorney general will start their investigation by hiring legal counsel to guide them.

The House’s investigative committee met for the first time as they delve into Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg’s conduct surrounding a fatal car crash last year.

The House’s investigation is expected to take months as they look into the crash investigation.

During their first meeting, lawmakers reviewed state law on impeachment. But they held off on any further action until they could hire an attorney.
