Caught with his Hand in the Till, Congressman Mullins
Breaks Campaign Promise of Only Three Terms to Avoid Paying Back the Campaign Funds?
By the Watchman
Never before in our eight years of coverage of Oklahoma politics have we ran into such an arrogant politician like Markwayne Mullins. This man is so self-centered and power hungry that he has fooled himself into believing that he doesn’t work for the people who elected him. We can’t help but wonder if his plumbing business is being ran as bad.
What brought our attention to this individual was this story Oklahoma pol: ‘Bull crap’ constituents pay salary – CNNPolitics.com. We realize that using CNN as a source may cause some heartburn over this maybe being fake news. That is not the case here. Their story is supported by this article Rep. Markwayne Mullin calls ‘bullcrap’ at town hall in Jay: ‘This is a service. No one here pays me to go’ | Government | tuls. In fact you will find that this story is not only included in these two articles, but is also included in many local newspapers in Congressional District 2. This is a clear example of a man who has let power go to his head.


State Rep. Glen Mulready, Republican candidate for Insurance Commissioner, announced two major endorsements in the past week:

Insurance Commissioner John Doak Endorses Glen Mulready  

TULSA, OK – Today, Insurance Commissioner John Doak endorsed Glen Mulready and his bid to become his successor at the Oklahoma Insurance Department.

“I cannot think of anyone more suited to be our state’s next Insurance Commissioner than Glen Mulready,” stated Insurance Commissioner John Doak. “I have known and worked with Glen for many years in the insurance industry. In his role as the Chairman of the House Insurance Committee, we have continued to work together on many legislative reforms aimed at safeguarding consumers and creating a more robust business climate. Glen Mulready is the kind of experienced, trusted conservative we need as our next Insurance Commissioner and I am honored to support him.”

Economist Brian Jackson Vies for Mullin’s Seat

Muskogee, OK—In March of 2017, Brian Jackson soft launched his campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives from OK District 2, the seat currently held by Representative Markwayne Mullin. Dr. Jackson is currently a professor at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah with a Ph. D. in Economics from Oklahoma State University.

While Brian is thankful to have had a fellow Republican in Congress since 2013, he believes it is time for the second district to elect a new, more conservative representative. He intends to prevent Rep. Mullin from breaking his term-limit pledge by defeating him during the Republican primary election expected in June of 2018.

Glen Mulready Files Statement of Organization for Insurance Commissioner

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Long-time insurance professional Glen Mulready filed a ‘Statement of Organization’ with the Oklahoma Ethics Commission over the weekend to form the Friends of Glen Mulready, 2018 campaign committee. The committee will support the Tulsa businessman’s 2018 campaign for Insurance Commissioner.

“I have spent my career creating insurance solutions for large and small businesses alike and after thoughtful and prayerful consideration with my wife, Sally, I have formed a campaign committee so that I may travel across the state talking to Oklahomans about how I can apply my experience to help safeguard them as their next Insurance Commissioner,” Mulready said.
