Pruitt's Campaign Donors Include Arkansans Sued By The Oklahoma Attorney General's Office
Scott Pruitt, Republican candidate for attorney general, has accepted more than $26,000 in campaign contributions from those associated or affiliated with Arkansas poultry companies the attorney general's office sued in federal court.
The Illinois River watershed pollution case has been controversial; final court action has yet to occur.
Donations to Pruitt also came from business owners and others in Springdale and Siloam Springs, Arkansas.
Pruitt also accepted $11,000 from owners of McDonald's restaurants; they are among major users of Tyson chicken products.
Pruitt has not yet responded to TMRO's questions about the donations.
