South Dakota Attorney General's Office to Open Ethics Complaint Against Gov. Name Kristi
The ethics commission investigating several complaints filed against Gov. Kristi Noem
has agreed to refer one of the complaints to the South Dakota Attorney General's Office for investigation.
The second complaint was dismissed in part by the Government Accountability
Committee as it was ruled to be an "appropriate course of action".
The decision was part of the council's seventh meeting on Monday
and came nearly three weeks after they decided to extend the investigation by another 60 days.
Noem faces two complaints: one for allegedly using a state plane for
personal use and another for abusing his position as governor
to help his daughter through the state's appraiser program.
