Candidate Arrested After Losing Primary

South Dakota U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth (R) turned herself in following the issuance of a warrant for her arrest just after she lost the election, the Sioux Falls Argus Leader reports.

Keloland: "Bosworth confirms that she has been charged with six counts of perjury and six counts of offering a false or forged instrument for filing... Concerns were raised during her campaign that she had submitted nominating petitions where she was listed as the petition circulator but was allegedly not in the country at the time the petition was circulated."

According to Business Insider, Bosworth's Facebook and Twitter accounts provided evidence against her.
