This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel talk about Oklahoma County handing its redistricting process over to state House and Senate staff, Gov. Kevin Stitt mulling his decision on a replacement for former Attorney General Mike Hunter and a new study showing the power of prosecutors on legislation at the State Capitol.

The trio also discusses the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission freezing jobless claim checks for some residents after concerns over fraudulent activity, and an Oklahoma City Police detective retracts his statement in the officer-involved shooting death of a Black man.
