State Representative Files Hundreds of Complaints with Oklahoma Ethics Commission
State Rep. Mike Reynolds filed hundreds of ethics complaints with the Oklahoma Ethics Commission. The complaints, filed against candidates and legislators, call attention to what he believes is a lack of enforcement.
Most of the violations involved late filings of campaign contribution and expenditure reports. Reynolds reports he spent three weeks, using computer programs he developed, to analyze Ethics Commission data. Lee Slater, the Oklahoma Ethics Commission’s new executive director, declined to comment on the complaints. –
