South Dakota House leader renews call for impeaching Ravnsborg

Jason Ravnsborg

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – South Dakota lawmakers are being asked to call a special session to consider impeaching the attorney general for his conduct in a car crash that killed a pedestrian last year.

In a statement, the House Speaker, House Republican leader and House Democratic leader laid out a process to evaluate impeaching Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg, but it would require two-thirds support from both the House and Senate.

House Republican leader Rep. Kent Peterson says he is proposing a special session in November.

If that call receives the necessary support, House Speaker Spencer Gosch would then appoint a committee to investigate the attorney general’s conduct.
