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.
