Annette Bosworth, a Senate candidate who infamously compared food stamp recipients to animals lost her bid Tuesday, shortly before entering jail.

On Wednesday morning, the Sioux Falls Argus Leader reported that the medical doctor had turned herself into the Minnehaha County Jail after authorities issued a warrant for her arrest.

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley (R) charged Bosworth with perjury following allegations that Bosworth claimed to have circulated nominating petitions while she was in the Philippines with her husband…

Last week, the former candidate confirmed she was abroad on a mission trip but maintained she hadn’t done anything wrong by allowing her sister to sign the nominating petition on Jan. 7.

“Did my sister sign the petition while I was in the Philippines? Yes, she did,” Bosworth said, according to the Argus Leader. “Did I sign that I know her, and that I affirmed that was her signature? Yes, I did.”

“Did I know the people that signed the petition? Yes. Are they South Dakotans? Yes. Do they support me? Yes,” she added.

    It always amazes me how many politicians get caught in some campaign screw up.

      why? They are politicians. Power hungry folks who don’t really give a damn about words like, er uh, integrity, honesty, compassion etc.

        Power hungry probably is the key… forge ahead rules, regulations and laws be damned!

    Another case of IOKIYAR gone wrong. There will be more room for them in prison soon when they stop arresting cannabis users.

      Something that’s long overdue!

        I’m thinking it won’t be too much longer.

    Is she guilty of fraud? Yes. Is she a typical republican that has others do her work while she vacations on her ass? Yes. Will she miss those vacations in jail? Yes. Lol
