INCUMBENT LEGISLATOR RUNS AS A CONSERVATIVE
YET HIS VOTING RECORD SAYS DIFFEREENT
It never fails to have Liberal Republicans run as Conservative during each election. We have again found another incumbent liberal Republican running for re-election in his district. We all know that politicians shade the truth on their about their true political believes, but we fail to see how anyone that votes for a tax hike can call themselves a Conservative. This is doubly troubling when a half billion in new taxes are placed on the backs of the working class when they leave tax credits to corporations practically untouched.
What started our interest in this report an article in the MusgokeePolitico.com. It seems that he is going to face a runoff in his campaign to keep his seat. All of his campaign literature is showing that he is claiming to be a conservative, yet he has voted to increase taxes that made it to the floor of the house over these last two years. It appears that he has it that the Republican Party is the party of lower taxes and less government. It also appears that he knows little about the states Constitution or chooses to ignore it. If he did, he would realize that him as well as all the elected officials in the state have been in violation of the Oklahoma State Constitution since 1994. That would make this and all other elected positions in the state illegitimate.
We started by going to his official web site at www.ok.gov and fond little useful information. We've been seeing more and more of this lately. It's enough to make us wonder what these elected officials are hiding. You can view his official web site link and opening it up.
After all of his planning, he finds himself in a run-off election. As there weren't any Democratic candidates for this district, the run-off will decide on who will represent District 38 at the capitol for the next two years. We found this articlewhich only raised our curiosity about his tenure in office. He needs to account for the year 2016, which was left off of this record.
Next we went to his voting page, which you can find at this link. We immediately noticed two things with about this information. The first thing was that included only what they consider to be "Key Votes." You can see what we are talking about by going to this document here. This is also where we began to wonder if he had submitted the information himself? This appears to be another thing he is keeping from the public.
We next went to the evaluation page at this site. We found that some of the normal ratings did not make any evaluation since 2014. We also found that the Oklahoma Constitution rated hm at a mere 23% in 2017. As far as being fiscally conservative, the Sooner Tea Party rated him at just 3%. We also noted the fact that as he got involved with the House Chamber leadership, the lower his evaluations became. It appears that he became little else than a yes man to the Speaker of the House.
We next went to the financial page and this information. He's running a very frugal campaign and had to donate some of his own funds to keep his campaign alive. But the wind industry came through with almost $30,000 in advertising thanks to his vote to keep the wind energy credits in place.
We next found this article. This is almost word for word at what we found from the Enid. Did he just copy and submit this report?
We next found this disturbing article . We found it disturbing in the fact that it only covered a two-year period of time. It also listed very few of his failures. Once again, we ask what is he hiding? He may be a former Marine and a native Oklahoman, but he is constantly failing his constituents and
The state of Oklahoma.
This report would indicate that the economy of Oklahoma Has not improved as much as the leadership of the state would have you believed. has not improved as much as our elected officials would like for you to think. It indicates more students are going to the smaller, less expensive schools.
We next found this disturbing report. We will concede the amounts given. It was an off-election year. We find it funny that they never to come up with the figures for an election year. We guess they don't want you to know how much they spend during an election year.
We next went to the State Ethics Committee to see his campaign finance reports. If you want to change the way to change the way the sate operates you need to know who is being paid off by outside interest groups. We recommend you go tothis site and open the attached link. Fill out the information and complete the search for the candidate you're wanting to know more about.
We did go to the indicated site and found that there were no reports listed. This brings up once again, what is he hiding?
In conclusion we can only say that District 38 can do better. We found repeated instances that gave the appearance that either him or the state are hiding information that should be available to all citizens. His failure to vote for added taxes and refusal to consider shrinking the near $6 billion dollars on what amounts to corporate welfare are appalling This should make voters think twice about voting for this individual. As a farmer and rancher, he may be okay, but he is a terrible legislator. Yep John it's homestead time to stop getting those $156 dollars a day per-diem and getting back to the old .
