Sioux Falls, S.D. (KELO AM) - A controversy that all started when political blogger Cory Heidelberger brought an affidavit to the secretary of state questioning the legitimacy of signatures of US Senate candidate Dr. Annette Bosworth, has now gotten even more heated.
A former consultant to the Annette Bosworth Campaign, Ethan Crisp, has come forward and claims that Bosworth and her husband were in the Philippines at the time the petitions bearing her witness signatures were made. Crisp swears that this is not for politics or his own gain.
Bosworth is now walking back some statements she made on Thursday's Greg Belfrage show on KELO. She now says she incorrectly suggested that she was advised by her lawyer before submitting petitions that critics have called fradulent. She says the lawyer was not involved and she regrets suggesting otherwise.
