Signature Counting Starts, Anti-Red Flag Legislation, Department of Public Safety Shakeup & More


This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU' Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about the decision by the Secretary of State's office to move forward with counting signatures on a petition to stop permitless carry, rather than waiting on a ruling from the State Supreme Court.

They also discuss Broken Arrow Republican Senator Nathan Dahm creating legislation to protect Oklahomans from Congressional "Red Flag" laws and Governor Stitt appointing a new leader to the Department of Public Safety after the resignation of some of its top administrators.

The trio also discusses a Federal Election Commission investigation of Congressman Kevin Hern regarding a $60,000 loan he received from a bank he helped create and govern as well as the Governor's Mansion now standing empty awaiting much needed repairs.
