Oklahoma Bar Association opens investigation of ex-AG Pruitt

The Associated Press - March 31, 2017 10:24 am

Scott Pruitt

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Bar Association is investigating an ethics complaint against former state Attorney General Scott Pruitt, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.
The complaint was filed by the Center for Biological Diversity and associate professor Kristen van de Biezenbos of the University of Oklahoma College of Law.
It says Pruitt may have violated the Oklahoma Rules of Professional Conduct when he told a U.S. Senate Committee at his confirmation hearings that he only used his official attorney general’s email address to conduct official business.
Documents released by the Attorney General’s Office in a public records lawsuit indicate Pruitt also used a personal email address to conduct official business.
A letter to van de Biezenbos from Bar Association General Counsel Gina Hendryx says an investigation was launched Tuesday.
