State Investigation Into Abortion Petition Callers

(Pierre, SD) — The Secretary of State’s Office is looking into recent calls made to people who signed the Abortion Rights petition. A warning was issued by the office yesterday. Officials say scam callers claiming to be with the Secretary of State’s Office were pushing callers to challenge the petition. South Dakota Representative Jon Hansen shared that volunteers for his new PAC, South Dakota Petition Integrity, were already making calls to petition signers yesterday. However, Hansen disputes the claim that any of his volunteers said that they were affiliated with the Secretary of State’s Office. The South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation has been asked to look into the issue.
