AG Asked To Recuse From GOED Investigation
Critics are calling on South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley to excuse himself from the investigations into the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the federally approved EB-5 immigration program.
The program brought in millions overseas investment from wealthy foreigners into projects like the now bankrupt beef packing plant in Aberdeen. Overseas investors were granted green cards for contributing 500-thousand dollars to rural projects through the federal program.
Critics say Jackley is too closely associated with those being investigated, but the Attorney General refutes these claims.
SDPB’s Charles Michael Ray has more.
