More reactions from Rep Mortenson regarding impeachment

PIERRE, S.D.(KCCR)- Reaction continues to come about after the House Select Committee of the South Dakota Legislature recommended not impeaching South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg for his conduct relating to a fatal pedestrian crash he was involved in near Highmore in 2020.  District 24 Representative Will Mortenson brought the original articles of impeachment that ultimately set up the Select Committee.  He’s disappointed by the recommendation.

The 70-member House meets again April 12th to consider the report and Mortenson is unsure what action he’ll take regarding articles of impeachment.

In a radio interview in mid-March Mortenson says he was quote “troubled by what he had seen from law enforcement” and elaborated on that.

The Select Committee included in its release a minority report which did include a recommendation to impeach the Attorney General.
