South Dakota House moves to impeach AG after fatal crash

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota House lawmakers on Tuesday began impeachment proceedings against the state’s attorney general, who is facing misdemeanor charges for striking and killing a man with his car and is already under pressure to resign.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers filed a resolution in the House to impeach the state’s top law enforcement officer, Jason Ravnsborg, after he indicated Monday he would not heed calls for his resignation.

The Republican attorney general faces three misdemeanor charges but no felonies in the September death of 55-year-old Joseph Boever.

Lawmakers argued in the impeachment resolution that Ravnsborg should be removed from office for “his crimes or misdemeanors in office causing the death” of Boever.

2. Glad to see it. But I still don't get how a hit & run resulting in death can only be a misdemeanor!

4. Me neither -- especially since he was on his phone, at least I heard that was the case

I thought distracted driving was considered the same as drunk driving. This should not be a misdemeanor no matter how you slice it. He killed a human being due to his negligence. Hopefully, in time, justice will be served.

5. Apparently was reading Breitbart on his phone about stupid Biden conspiracies when

he killed the person due to negligence. No one is above the law.

8. He clearly lied in claiming he thought he hit a deer not a human - the victim's glasses were left

behind in his car after the collision. This man's head went far enough through the windshield for his glasses to remain behind.

If killing a man like this is only a misdemeanor in SD, what does lying to the cops/prosecutors count as in SD instead of the felony or misdemeanor it would be in other states -- a spanking, a finger wag, a tsk-tsk?

Fuuuuuuuuuuck you South Dakota, for your homicide statutes!

9. No, Hold On, Governor Noem Has Got it Long-Established By Now That Fatalities Caused

By political mischief are perfectly tolerable in South Dakota. Admired, even.

It's her signature move.
