South Dakota Attorney General won't wade into Sioux Falls dispute

Posted: Updated:

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says he won't wade into a dispute over whether Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether and city officials broke the law while presenting information about a proposed $115 million events center.

Huether favors building the center. During a talk at a Rotary club luncheon on Monday he told the crowd he was "going to advocate" for the project. Critics say his presentation and handout created with public money were one-sided.

Jackley says that for now he'll let Sioux Falls' city attorney and ethics board determine whether Huether and others are following state law that prohibits the use of public money for the purpose of influencing the vote on a ballot measure. City Attorney Dave Pfeifle (FYF'-lee) maintains that Huether acted appropriately.
