SDAG4 OC….. THE RIGHT TIME :10

SDAG5 OC…..STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA :09

SDAG6 OC……..BEFORE THE HOUSE :13

IF THE HOUSE PASSES THE ARTICLES, THEN A TRIAL WOULD BE HELD IN THE STATE SENATE, WHERE A TWO THIRDS VOTE WOULD BE NEEDED TO CONVICT AND REMOVE RAVNSBORG FROM OFFICE.

SOUTH DAKOTA GOVERNOR KRISTI NOEM IS CALLING FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL JASON RAVNSBORG TO RESIGN.

VIDEOS FOOTAGE RELEASED TUESDAY FROM TWO SEPARATE INTERVIEWS INDICATES THAT AUTHORITIES WERE SKEPTICAL ABOUT RAVNSBORG’S ASSERTION THAT HE DIDN’T REALIZE HE’D HIT A PERSON DURING THE SEPTEMBER 2020 CRASH THAT KILLED BOEVER.

INVESTIGATORS REVEALED IN THE INTERVIEWS THAT BOEVER’S READING GLASSES WERE FOUND INSIDE THE VEHICLE THAT KILLED HIM.

A DETECTIVE WITH THE NORTH DAKOTA BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION POINTED OUT IN A SEPTEMBER 30TH INTERVIEW THAT BOEVER’S FACE WENT INTO RAVNSBORG’S WINDSHIELD.
