WILL MARY FALLIN PROVE SHE IS NOT BREAKING ETHICS LAWS?
Democratic Party asks Mary Fallin to release records in accordance with Open Records Act
Oklahoma City – Today, Oklahoma Democratic Party Chairman Wallace Collins submitted a request asking for information regarding the use of Governor Mary Fallin’s taxpayer-funded staff for campaign purposes.
“The Governor is obligated by law to provide us with this information. Governor Fallin used her office and taxpayer dollars to campaign. We believe this is illegal and by providing these documents she can prove that she is not breaking state law,” said Chairman Collins.
The Oklahoma Democratic Party is requesting the public records under Oklahoma Open Records Act, 51§24A.1.
Chairman Collins added, “Oklahoma should not tolerate this bad behavior from any elected official, Democrat or Republican. The Oklahoma Democratic Party believes in transparency and ethical government, values that Fallin also claims to support as Chair of the National Governor’s Association.”
The Oklahoma Democratic Party hand delivered the open records request to the Governor’s office at the Oklahoma State Capitol on April 9th. See the full letter here: Open Records Request
