Rob Wallace (OK-D) for US Congress said SE Oklahomans need to send someone to capital hill who knows how to go toe-to-toe, as he has the experience in dealing w/the worst people imaginable. Wallace said that NOBODY in Washington is going to intimidate him. He also said that the political system has been a system of hired voices, & further indicated that regular folks don’t have the bucks to hire K-street lobbyist to carry their voice.
Wallace said the system has become a set of members who only listens to hired voices. Therefore, the only way for people in SE Oklahoma to get heard, he added, was for them to send someone from this area who will stand up to the special interest.
The moderator’s question posed to Rob Wallace was:”Gridlock is clogging up Capital Hill & with the 2 major parities often polarized to the detriment of the nation as a whole, and as a freshman US Representative what can you do to try to break down the lock jam that often occurs on capital hill?”.
Robert (Rob) Wallace, a democrat & Former Assistant US Attorney General is running for the office of US congress (2nd congressional district Oklahoma). His opponent is Marywayne Mullin — a republican & local plumber. The seat they both seek was held by democrat Dan Boren who is retiring & have held that seat since 2005. US Congressional district 2 of Oklahoma is the only democrat district in the entire state. Therefore, its imperative that the democrats hold on to that district, as the republicans are trying to turn the entire state Red to impair political balance. The election will be November 6, 2012.

My oh my….. Illegal firearm purchases, explosives, ATF raids, reckless endangerment, violent criminality, lawlessness, reckless, fatally flawed are just a few of the things linked to republican Markwayne Mullin, according to Oklahoma GOP state senator – George Faught campaign website (as of 9/2012). Oklahoma State Senator Faught who lost to Mullin in GOP runoff for US congress Oklahoma district 2 , did a luke warm endorsement of Mullin via his official campaign website. But that’s not the only thing on his campaign website in reference to Mullin as he used some strong worded characterization of Mullin which is hardly an endorsement for the job as public servant or even entering one’s home to fix the plumbing for that matter … well.. you know… ah…. I wont be calling his plumbing company to fix the faucet. And No .. I wont be voting for Mullin either.
In case Oklahoma & National GOP got wind that some of those pages that were still Live as of 9/18/2012 on Faught’s website & they put pressure on Faught to scrub it down, I had already web captured Faught’s campaign website back in September 19, 2012. The video files were embedded from another external site. When I checked to look at Faught’s campaign sight again I found most of the incriminating stuff against Mullin had been scrubbed off. I figured the power-that-be of the GOP got hold of him.
Considering all this, I found it another matter that’s troubling to me & that was recently brought to my attention since Im blogging stuff that may not be to Mullin’s liking. Its the issue about his campaign allegedly threatening a Claremore Daily Progress female reporter – Salesha Wilken. I hope Mullin nor his campaign play rough with me for my bucking him w/my reporting on the internet. Oh well, I guess time will tell. But I find it necessary to post this issue before matters get turned up a notch – JUST IN CASE!

Howard Houchen is running for Oklahoma state senate (District 5) in 2012 to beat out democrat Jerry Ellis (incumbent). Since both of these candidates are in different political parties, they will be on ballot in general election in November.
When asked Houchen about his position on open meetings (open government rule) at the state capital, he said that he supported HR1004 petition and that his opponent Jerry Ellis did not. There were talks amongst Oklahoma State legislatures about allowing all representatives discuss bills so that it was not left up to the chairman to arbitrarily kill it without discussion. Then suddenly they decided against it. Here’s the website that explains the HR1004 petition.
Also Houchen informed me that if Jerry Ellis were to win, that he could not fulfill his full term of office. Since this was the case with Ellis, Houchen added that he wanted to give the people a voice throughout the entire legislative process.
Oklahoma State senate district #5 covers the following 5 counties: Atoka (eastern portion) , Choctaw (entirety), Leflore (southern portion), McCurtain (entirety) and Pushmataha (entirety).
The general election is November 6, 2012.
This interview was done at Oklahoma GOP state convention on May 12, 2012 at Embassy Suites in Norman, Oklahoma.
