SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A consultant is suing former South Dakota U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth, saying he was not paid for work he did for her legal defense fund.

Mitchell Olson says he was hired by Bosworth’s legal defense fund in June 2016 and was paid $4,000 a month from the fund. Olson says he was not paid for work he performed in May, June and July of this year and is owed $24,000.

Olson filed his lawsuit last Friday in Minnehaha County against Bosworth; her husband, Chad Haber, and the legal defense fund.

Bosworth told the Argus Leader on Monday she has no direct connection with the legal defense fund.

In July, the South Dakota Supreme Court reversed half of Bosworth’s convictions stemming from her unsuccessful 2014 GOP primary race.
