(SD)-SD House To Investigate Rapid City Lawmaker

By: John Axtell Posted at: 02/24/2018 06:22 AM
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota House will investigate first-term Republican State Representative David Johnson of Rapid City for conduct described as "unfair statements" to a colleague.
     Members voted 45-13 Friday to establish a special committee on discipline and expulsion to investigate Johnson's conduc. It could recommend no action or penalties such as discipline or even expulsion.

      Johnson apologized publicly to fellow GOP Representative Lynne DiSanto before the vote, saying his emotions got the better of him, but he gave no details on what his actions were.

     Another Republican, Republica Dan Kaiser, was one of the lawmakers who moved to form the panel and says Johnson "needs to be held accountable." 
      House lawmakers formed a similar committee last January to investigate an Republican House member, Mathew Wollmann, who admitted to sexual contact with two interns and later resigned.
