PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth says she’s appealing a state board’s decision to revoke her medical license after her May felony conviction for election law violations.

Bosworth said she filed her appeal in circuit court Monday. Bosworth also asked that she be able to have her license while she appeals the revocation.

Bosworth is also appealing her conviction on six counts each of perjury and filing false documents.

An attorney for medical board staff argued during this month’s revocation proceedings that Bosworth’s conduct was a threat to the public.

Bosworth says she loves being a doctor and hopes to be successful. She says she is working on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where few doctors work, and wants to continue serving there.
