Again apparently you didnt read the work on broken arrow was performed by an auditor who let there independece be corrupted and again these type of audits can destroy peoples reputations, livelyhoods, and can get them put in jail. Just look at the special reports for skiatook, butner schools, wagoner schools, an Casa.
How about tax credit fraud.
Vote for BURRAGE

BURRAGE is the only qualified candidate. He is honest, ethical, and pays his taxes. 3 things that his oppenent is not and does not do.

One main reason is Jones couldn't keep his promise to the Republican Party when we was running the lead it again. Remember everyone "Vote for me I won't run fort eh Auditors Office again" well guess that is what politicians call not the truth, i call it a lie.

Yeah, the state had to eat that cost of that audit. Burrage was a banker. He is a weenie and can't even keep his own workers under control - look at the BA audit. Why wasn't he aware of problems long before they released the draft of it? Appears to me he doesn't know what is going on in his OWN office. We need a change.
VOTE GARY JONES!!

In my opinion Burrage hasn't made a good showing. I say let's give this Jones a try. We don't have anything to lose!

As for everyone saying vote jones do you understand what the auditors office does? Looking at their website the majority of the work are financial and performance audits. You also know these have to be done under standers,correct? You would then also have to know jones has never done an audit under standards then also. If you were interviewing were you worked and the person who applied has never ever done the work, would you hire them? I wouldn't and that's why I wouldn't vote for jones.

Gary is more qualified, and has uncovered more corruption than anyone else in Oklahoma. He's our watchdog!

Again prove to me he's uncoveredore fraud waste and abuse than the current auditor has. Look at the casa and skiatook audits alone and there is more fraud waste and abuse than any thing Gary claims responsibility for.

Gary asked to be released from that promise when it was filing time and no other Republican had announced.

I was harsh toward him about that promise when McMahon "resigned" and there was a conservative movement to lobby the governor to appoint Gary.

But two years later we could not let that office go unchallenged on the ballot. I spoke with Gary personally just a few days before filing and gave him my blessing.

I believe he waited until the last filing day to announce. I am happy for him and I am happy for the GOP and I am happpy to have Matt Pinnell as our Chairman.

Burrage is clearl qualified and the best candidate. Jones hasn't actually done any audits, doesn't appear to care for facts, and too easily tosses out vague claims of greatness.

MsBobbie, you're mistaken. A candidate had filed for the office and I didn't give him my blessing. Go Republicans, just not in the race for auditor. It's too important and Gary is not up to the task!

You're ridiculous and uninformed. BA was refunded the cost of the first audit. Besides, its obvious from the news accounts that the flawed audit was deliberate and probably the handiwork of Jones, Mike Reynolds and the auditor assigned to the job. Burrage made the right call - not the political call. Besides, what about all the other audits he's done? Jones is a fraud.

I believe Mr. Jones and Mr.Hanigar both filed on the same day, the last day of the filing period.

I do not know who got there first, or if either knew the other was going to be there.

I do not know how to pull up the filing information from before the primary on the State Election Board website.

I can tell you hanigar filed that morning and jones waitied till about 40 minutes before the filing period ended. He knew and decided to file anyway. This is one republican casting his vote for Burrage. I also heard they jones left the repub part in a big hole so much they couldn't even pay for an audit to be performed.

Gary is a stand up guy for what is right and what is accurate. I personally challenged him in an antagonistic way and he calmly revealed all facts and figures for independant assessment without spin so I could see and judge for my self. He is the first to crack the vast corruption run by the Democrats since before statehood in Little Dixie, something the FBI failed at for many years.

Again i state do people who support Gary understand what the Auditors Office does? If you where hiring someone in your business and this required someone with experience in performing the job, would you hire someone who has never ever done it before? Jones has never done an audit and never followed auditing standards. Period.
