Marty Jackley- A Timeline of Events As Attorney General from 2009-2016
Sent in Anonymously Authored Report

A detailed report was sent to The Dakota Leader from an untraceable, dummy email address, believed to have been created for the sole purpose of protecting the author's identity. The Full Document, which can be viewed here, chronicles a timeline of events dating back to 2009, when Jackley first took office as Attorney General.

The author, citing government sources, details increased crime rates, rape, human trafficking, missing money, Medicaid fraud, and various known scandals, like EB5 and Gear-Up, that made headlines during Jackley's time in office.

Using FBI crime statistics, and headlines from The Argus Leader, the author shows a 96 percent increase in violent crimes under Attorney General Marty Jackley.

According to a 2014 CNN report, South Dakota had the second highest rate of reported rapes in the nation.

During the 2016 Governor's race, Kristi Noem was reportedly behind in the polls, until running a series of ads calling out Marty Jackley's performance as Attorney General, and claiming that he was unqualified to hold the office of Governor. Now Governor, Kristi Noem,
is supporting her one-time rival and has endorsed Jackley to replace House impeached, Jason Ravnsborg, ahead of the Senate impeachment trial.

The Senate impeachment trial, led by Senate President Pro-Tempore Lee Schoenbeck (R-Watertown), has been scheduled for next week, directly ahead of the 2022 SDGOP Convention, where Republican delegates will be asked to appoint the next Attorney General of South Dakota. The vacancy, left by a Republican, must be filled by a Republican, until the next election under South Dakota state law. During the Convention, delegates will also be deciding which Constitutional officers will go forward into the 2022 general election for Secretary of State, and various positions within the party.

Jackley, whom Gov. Noem criticized harshly during the 2016 election, is once again seeking the office of Attorney General, at next weekend's SDGOP Convention.

Editor's note- while we are unsure of the author's identity, the timing of this report, appears to be motivated by the upcoming Convention.
