South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg has been impeached over his 2020 car crash that left a pedestrian dead.
The South Dakota House of Representatives acted to impeach Ravnsborg, a first-term Republican, on a 36-31-3 vote Tuesday. Impeachment required a majority of votes in the 70-member body, and 36 was the bare minimum.
The historic move makes Ravnsborg the first South Dakota official to be impeached in state history, and will force a trial in the state Senate. Ravnsborg is now suspended from office, but it’s unclear if he will still be paid his $118,603.03 annual salary.
