Former Candidate Bosworth Facing Medical License Proceedings

SIOUX FALL, S.D. (AP) — Former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth is undergoing proceedings to determine if her medical license should be revoked after her felony conviction for election law violations in May.

KSFY-TV ( ) reports that testimony in the South Dakota Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners proceeding started Friday.

John Whipple is a physician with the Kansas-based Acumen Institute. He says Bosworth’s license should be revoked because of her conviction.

Bosworth has brought supporters to testify. Physician Thomas Dean says Bosworth didn’t intend to break the law, but simply made a mistake.

A jury found Bosworth guilty of six counts each of perjury and filing false documents. Earlier this month, a judge handed down a suspended sentence without prison time provided she completes three years of probation.
