The South Dakota Attorney Generalâ€™s office is continuing its investigation into the Governorâ€™s Office of Economic Development. Attorney General Marty Jackley has said his office does not have a conflict of interest while looking into activity of the department during the administration of former Governor Mike Rounds. Much of the investigation apparently is focused on the financing of the now bankrupt Northern Beef Packers in Aberdeen. Much of that funding came through foreign investors using the EB-5 program.
