Oklahoma Democratic Party Sues Ethics Commission Over New Fundraising Rules
The state Democratic Party has filed suit in federal court against the state Ethics Commission over rules the agency adopted last year.
The Democratic Party argues the new rules, which prohibit fundraising and election material distribution on state-owned property, improperly restrain free speech and, therefore, violate the Constitution.
The party is asking the court to invalidate the rules.
