Rolling Stone: South Dakota lawmaker’s name appears on leaked Oath Keeper list
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - A South Dakota lawmaker is being connected to a controversial, anti-government militia group in a Rolling Stone report.
The Rolling Stone reported Tuesday State Representative Phil Jensen’s name appeared in a leaked membership list of the Oath Keepers.
Jensen, who has served in the South Dakota Legislature since 2014, allegedly joined the Oath Keepers the same year, according to a membership leak. The leak did not indicate whether or not he is a current member.
