Prater Confirms OSBI Campaign Probe
Nolan Clay reports in The Oklahoman today that Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater has "confirmed...the OSBI is investigating his 2006 campaign and he blamed his enemies."
“When you go after powerful people, you make powerful enemies,” he told The Oklahoman. “I welcome the investigation.”
Prater, a Democrat, denied doing anything wrong. He said the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation notified him last week of the inquiry. He said agents have not interviewed him yet.
The OSBI is investigating allegations of official misconduct, OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown said. OSBI Director Stan Florence said, “It is sensitive. … We want this matter cleared up, too. We're going to hopefully get this resolved one way or the other in fairly short order.”
The attorney general's office requested the investigation last week, the OSBI spokeswoman said.
