SD Lawmakers Being Asked To Call Special Session On Impeachment Of AG


      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, which calls for the special session to begin the day after lawmakers finish their November special session for redistricting.

   . Two-thirds of both the House and Senate must support the petition to convene the special session. 

      Ravnsborg pleaded No Contest last month to a pair of misdemeanors in the death of 55-year old Joe Boever and was fined $1,000.
