South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s daughter says she will quit the real estate appraiser business following scrutiny over whether her mother used her influence to aid her application for an appraiser license.
Kassidy Peters slammed a legislative inquiry in a letter that was obtained by the Associated Press. KSFY first reported the release of the document and Peters’ letter.
Lawmakers had requested the document to confirm that a plan to give Peters another chance to win her appraiser certification was “in place” prior to a meeting that has raised ethics questions and in investigation by a legislative committee.
The agreement may have been “in place” at the time, but the signed document is dated the week after the July 27, 2020 meeting.
