Last night, Preston Doerflinger, in a rather cynical series of social media posts, began to attack Auditor Gary Jones' credibility by saying (essentially), "Gary Jones lied too!".
This morning, Gary Jones spoke with the Pat Campbell Radio show to provide a further timeline of when his dept. was first trusted with a whistleblower's tip, in July. Jones said his duty is to quietly investigate that tip without creating a public spectacle. Jones said that on Sept. 1st his state office determined that the data was credible and the Fallin Administration is the proper office to take responsibility and oversight of the crisis. So Jones officially approached Gov. Fallin's properly appointed leader of her administration's financial agency; Preston Doerflinger, Director of OMES.
The podcast of the Jones radio interview will be posted later this morning.
