Fishy Business in Tulsa Mayoral Race

Exclusively from the Muskogee Politico - breaking news from the Tulsa Mayoral election...

With election day coming on Tuesday, the Tulsa mayoral race is heating up in more ways than one. Not only are the Republican and Democrat candidates waging a negative television ad war, with an Independent candidate attempting to capitalize off of weariness of partisanship and negativity, but new developments have arisen today.

A source within the Dewey Bartlett campaign is reporting that a group (allegedly volunteers for Democrat Tom Adelson) is calling registered Republicans in Tulsa and giving out false voter information, such as incorrect polling locations and early voting times, while claiming to be with the Dewey Bartlett campaign. In addition, some of the phone calls are occurring at odd times of the day, such as 2:00am. This has resulted in negative responses to Bartlett volunteers' phone calling, which brought about the discovery of this fishy business.

Officials with the RNC, who are working alongside the Bartlett campaign, say that the calls could be against state law.

We will update you on any new developments to this story.
