In September, Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg drove while distracted, killed Joe Boever with his car, then called 911 and said he hit something “in the middle of the road.” The police report confirms what Boever’s cousin, Nick Nemec, found at the crash scene: Ravnsborg killed Boever at the right edge of the road, with his car entirely in the shoulder.
After casting his Electoral College vote yesterday, Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg told the press, “I believe I have not committed any crime.” He says he has never considered stepping down from his elected position in law enforcement and suggests those who contend he committed a crime are not being “accurate“:
“I am continuing to do my job for the people, including today,” Ravnsborg said. Ravnsborg has been seen at police academy graduation events, and has continued to be a part of various legal efforts through his government office. He said today that he never intended to take any kind of a leave of absence.
Ravnsborg said that he had attempted to reach out to the Boever family in the immediate aftermath of the accident.
When pressed about challenges to what he attests happened that night, Ravnsborg pushed back.
“I would take great dispute (to the fact) that we are lying. Some things have come out that I do not believe were accurate also,” Ravnsborg said. “We will just let the investigation run, and will make a full statement when that has been completed” [Austin Goss, “Attorney General Ravsnborg Breaks Silence,” KSFY, 2020.12.14].

Ravnsborg says he is “very humbled by the outpouring of support that they have given me throughout the process.” This alleged “outpouring” of support for bad driving and bad lawyering must come from the same alleged “thousands of calls and emails from concerned citizens” who wanted Ravnsborg to join the seditious lawsuit from Texas seeking to overturn the votes of millions of Americans.
