Bosworth Fires Back At Jackley

Bosworth Fires Back At Jackley
Annette Bosworth

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

After perjury and false filing charges were brought against her earlier this week, former U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth is firing back at South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley.

During an afternoon news conference Friday, Bosworth said Jackley's charges are politically motivated since she was running against former Governor Mike Rounds - who appointed Jackley as the attorney general.

Bosworth also believes that the charges are part of some sort of revenge Jackley is attempting to seek after the state failed to take away her medical license in 2012.

Jackley filed charges earlier this week after investigators discovered that Bosworth was in the Philippines when she supposedly signed as a circulator on a nominating petition filed to get her name on the ballot.

Bosworth says all the people who signed her nominating petitions wanted her name on the primary ballot.

"Those were real people who were supporters of mine. They weren't fake and they weren't dead," Bosworth said.

Jackley's office has not yet responded to Bosworth's allegations.
