Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, June 22, 2022

South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg has been convicted in impeachment charges and removed from office over the aftermath following a fatal car crash in 2020 he was involved in. Ravnsborg, 46, faced the state's first impeachment trial for his conduct surrounding the traffic accident, in which he struck and killed a pedestrian with his 2011 Ford Taurus. After he was convicted by the state senate of two impeachment charges -- committing a crime that caused someone's death and a malfeasance charge alleging he misled investigators and misused his office -- Ravnsborg was removed from office and barred from holding future office.

I can't believe it took so long for this to happen. His victim hit the windshield so hard that his eyeglasses were found inside the car. And he didn't know he hit somebody? Impossible to believe.

Accident or not we can't have someone who's killed another person like that holding high office.

Its too bad, if he was able to rise and be elected POTUS he could kill thousands and get away with it scot-free.

To what would you attribute that, Eb?

Must be nice to kill someone and the worst that happens is you lose your job.

In a small place like SD you're either in the loop or out of it. Indians? Out of the loop. This guy? Looped-in. See the difference?

"Again, why would a man be walking down the road?" Ravnsborg asked North Dakota investigators in Sept. 2020. "I believe I'm on the road and " wham. My life changes." A crash reconstruction found that Ravnsborg had all four tires on the shoulder of the road when he struck Boever.

Gee, you think the guy you killed life changed, too???

Congrats GQP you built that!
