A news story this month about Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak’s use of state-owned aircraft left us with a few questions.
Why does Doak feel the need to fly hither and yon as part of his job? The Tulsa World reported that only Gov. Mary Fallin has used state aircraft more than Doak. He used it in April to tour tornado damage, but also for speaking engagements and other meetings. Is that really necessary? Doak thinks so.
