SIOUX FALLS, SD (AP) — The South Dakota Attorney General says he is investigating state lawmakers’ concerns about a meeting last year, Governor Kristi Noem, in which both her daughter and a top official attended.
The state employee was in charge of Noem’s daughter applying to be a certified real-estate appraiser.
The application was originally scheduled to be rejected, according to The Associated Press. However, Noem’s received its certification four months after meeting.
Jason Ravnsborg, Attorney General, stated in a statement that he had been contacted and will address the concerns of lawmakers.
Ravnsborg did respond to a question regarding the possible steps he might take but not immediately.
According to state law, the Attorney General is responsible for providing legal advice and guidance to legislators.
The Associated Press asked the governor about the meeting but he declined to answer.
