Rep. Hickey goes after US Senate candidate Dr. Bosworth again

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A state representative who has tried to keep Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Annette Bosworth off the South Dakota ballot now is accusing her of breaking state and federal law.

Republican Rep. Steve Hickey of Sioux Falls accuses Bosworth of "corruption" and of planning to use her list of supporters from the campaign as a personal "income stream for the future."

Hickey didn't publicly detail the specific allegations he says he forwarded to law enforcement. Attorney General Marty Jackley confirmed to the Argus Leader newspaper that he had received information from Hickey. There was no immediate comment from Bosworth.

Hickey earlier filed a court challenge over the validity of signatures submitted by Bosworth but withdrew it after finding out it would not be addressed until after ballots were printed.
