OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A former Oklahoma House leader is facing 44 felony counts after prosecutors say he paid for travel expenses from his campaign account and was reimbursed by the state for the same expenses. Felony charges of perjury, embezzlement and making false claims against the state were filed Friday against Gus Blackwell in Oklahoma County. The Laverne Republican represented the Panhandle in the House for 12 years before being term-limited in 2014.
