Democrats Sue Governor Fallin

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Democratic Party is suing Governor Mary Fallin, alleging that her office has failed to provide requested public records.

The Oklahoman reports that the party asked for records on how much money the governor spent on her trip to the Paris Air Show in June. The organization says its request still hasn’t been fulfilled about eight months later.

Oklahoma Democratic Party chairman Mark Hammons says the party had concerns that it was inappropriate for the governor to take the trip while there were severe storms and flooding in Oklahoma.

In the request, Hammons asked for information such as travel costs and source of funding for the expenses.

A spokesman for the governor’s office says the party is trying to precede others who filed open records requests before it.
