Public exposure of recent emails by prominent politicians raises serious concerns about the way taxpayer business appears to be conducted.
The email from the head of the Sooner Tea Party to a member of the Legislature, in trying to influence the handling of a piece of legislation, uses aggressive and threatening language that borders on blackmail. This is currently under legal scrutiny. Likewise, emails reluctantly released by Gov. Mary Fallin's office contain strong language designed to coerce the governor's office to reverse the course of its previous position on an issue concerning Obamacare.
