South Dakota lawmakers circulating petition to impeach attorney general
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota legislative leaders are distributing a petition to lawmakers asking them to support a special session to consider impeaching Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg for a car crash last year that killed a pedestrian.
House Speaker Spencer Gosch released the text of the petition. Two-thirds of both the House and Senate must support it to convene the special session.
Lawmakers would meet in November, the day after they are scheduled to hold a special session to consider new legislative districts.
The attorney general pleaded no contest to a pair of misdemeanors last month.
