Sean Roberts allegations, COVID education funding lawsuit, Gov. Stitt polling and more

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel about calls from five Republican female lawmakers for Labor Commissioner candidate Sean Roberts to drop out of the race after accusations from his ex-wife of abuse and mistreatment, the ACLU of Oklahoma citing the downgrade of the Tulsa Public Schools accreditation in its opposition to House Bill 1775 and the Stitt Administration leveling a lawsuit of the Florida company in charge of handling COVID-19 education money following a scathing audit from the federal government.

The trio also discusses a new poll finding Gov. Stitt's approval rating has slipped 12 points since January and Attorney General John O'Connor refusing to hear new evidence in the case of death row inmate Richard Glossip which could have an impact on executions in the state of Oklahoma.
