House Dems join State Auditor's call for AG to act on Epic case


Democrats Join Auditor’s Call for Attorney General to Act on Epic

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Several House Democrats released a joint statement praising Auditor Cindy Byrd’s investigation into EPIC Youth Services and joining her call for Attorney General John O’Connor to act in response to the auditor’s findings of possible criminal activity.

“It has become clear, after hearing from Auditor Byrd on multiple occasions, that millions of taxpayer dollars flowed through EPIC and into the pockets of the school’s founders.

“At a time when Oklahoma students were denied resources, the auditor’s findings show the individuals in charge of EPIC Youth Services sought to enrich themselves with the very dollars intended for those students. 

“We stand with Auditor Byrd and call on Attorney General O’Connor to restore public trust in government and act on the auditor’s findings. It is time for Oklahoma’s attorney general to hold EPIC Youth Services accountable.”
