ND Tax Commissioner Seeking Alcohol Treatment

ND Tax Commissioner's Vehicle Involved In Crash
ND Tax Commissioner's Vehicle Involved In Crash

Bismarck, N.D. (AP) Republican North Dakota Tax Commissioner Ryan Rauschenberger announced Thursday that he will take a temporary unpaid leave of absence to seek treatment for alcohol addiction. On Wednesday, Rauschenberger announced that he had been receiving treatment for an alcohol problem. He also said he loaned his vehicle to someone he met in treatment and the vehicle was involved in an accident. Fargo attorney Jason Astrup, a Democrat running against Rauschenberger for tax commissioner in November, says he hopes his opponent will get the help he needs. Astrup says many people have friends and loved ones who struggle with addiction. He says it's not appropriate to pass judgment on Rauschenberger.
