Investment group warns that Oklahoma abortion laws could hurt business recruitment and economic development. However, Oklahoma lawmakers shrug off such concerns, saying that if there’s an economic price to pay for protecting unborn life, Oklahomans are willing to pay it.

Good grief, I highly doubt most of the local chambers of commerce, along with the majority of Oklahomans, would believe extreme abortion ban laws are worth losing new and current businesses over. Oklahoma, due to its bad image, suffers enough from lack of major industry and business, along with high paying jobs they may bring. If Oklahoma, loses the Panasonic plant, I think we'll know why.

Economic conditions are so bad that several cities in Oklahoma, including the 2nd biggest one, Tulsa, are trying to bribe people with up to $10,000 to move there to be remote workers and/or buy a home.

As for further laws against women's reproductive freedoms, it is said that next year Republican state legislators will try to pass a law banning sales of birth control to women unless they can prove they are married. So, I'm hoping Roe vs Wade won't be repealed.

AP: District attorney confirms investigation into governor’s ad

David Prater said he launched an investigation after a bipartisan group of House legislators suggested the 30-second ad, titled "Track Record," violates state law

So what exactly is the problem? The article isn't real clear as to what makes it illegal? Is it because he is essentially campaigning for O'connor?

I assume because of the things in large print below


The ad, airing in Oklahoma City and Tulsa markets, touts Stitt’s appointment of Attorney General John O’Connor, who is described as a "conservative fighter" and is prominently featured in the second half of the ad. The Stitt campaign spent about $340,000 to air the ad for three weeks in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, the lawmakers said in their letter to Prater.

State law prohibits a candidate from knowingly making or accepting a contribution of more than $2,900 to another candidate committee. Independent expenditures by a candidate committee also are prohibited. Concerns about the ad were first reported by the nonprofit journalism organization Oklahoma Watch.

Donelle Harder, Stitt’s campaign manager, released a statement saying the campaign had received legal counsel in advance and they remain confident it is an "acceptable campaign ad." But she added: "In light of a recent inquiry, we are pausing this particular ad."

LOL.

“I’ll take tweet headlines that have nothing to do with the article Alex for $100”

Read the article. By far, the most campaign donations went to Joy Hofmeister.
Don’t vote for the guy who received $10,000 he’s the most corrupt governor in the country. Instead vote for the lady who received $50,000 from the same group. I’m betting the person from oklahoma project who tweeted the article didn’t read it either.

Sounds like they should both not be able to run again. Or, are people voting based on monetary amount LOL.

"Hey, that guy was in charge of the whole theft but he only stole $500 from me and that other guy who was involved stole $3000 so I like the $500 guy better.":derp:

I hope plenty of Oklahoma Republicans will vote for Joy. It shouldn't be too much of a pain to vote for her from running as a Democrat, since she used to be a Republican and after winning could decide to register back to being Republican.

Me, my wife, and her educator colleagues are not voting for her because in our opinion she was an ineffective State Superintendent, but I don’t at all believe those charges had merit (maybe I am being naive).

I am not a fan of her as a leader, but in all my interactions with her, I have never witnessed her being unethical or dishonest.

still not quite as 'entertaining/sad' as the '91 Louisiana governor race between Edwards (the crook) and Duke (the white supremacist)...the crook won...
