Two years ago, Annette Bosworth was a candidate for the U.S. Senate. One year ago, she was convicted of perjury. Today, Nov. 8, the South Dakota Supreme Court heard oral arguments in her appeal.
While a candidate, Bosworth verified that she circulated nominating petitions, when in fact she was in the Philippines at the time the signatures were collected.
She now claims that her felony conviction goes beyond what her actions merit. But the prosecutor says she lied on official state documents, and her conviction is solid.
