Pruitt's Confirmation, Sexual Harassment Investigations & Criminal Justice Reform

Jan 20, 2017

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel and Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill about the marathon congressional hearing by Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the EPA, another accuser steps forward in the sexual harassment investigation of Tulsa Republican Rep. Dan Kirby while Stillwell Democratic Rep. Will Fourkiller refuses to participate in the closed door committee and the Governor's Justice Reform Task Force announces its recommendations could save the state $2B over the next ten years.

The trio also discusses the crowded field to replace Seminole Republican Rep. Tom Newell who resigned just days after winning reelection and new registered voter numbers show Democrats continuing to hemorrhage members to Republicans and Independents.
