Waiting Begins for Consumers Fighting Bribed Corporation Commission Vote

The waiting begins for the Oklahomans who have long considered a 1989 bribed Corporation Commission vote should result in a nearly $16 billion refund from ATT.

After filing an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, the handful of individuals who call  themselves Oklahomans Against Bribery indicated their case was one of freedom of speech.

In their 26-page appeal  asking for a Writ of certiorari,  the consumers said denying citizens a right to petition legislative bodies “threatens and undermines our very republican form of government.”

The appeal was filed by Sody Clements, Retired Air Force Lt. General Richard Burpee, James Proctor, Rodd Moesell, Ray Potts and retired Oklahoma City FBI Director Bob Ricks.
