The Multicounty Grand Jury investigating wrongdoing at the Oklahoma Dept. of Health has wrapped up their efforts to uncover criminal activity. Surprisingly, the grand jury decided that the leadership of the agency is just plain incompetent. Prosecutors with the state Attorney General's office say that they were utterly shocked that a major state agency could be run so ineptly for so long.
The Grand Jury members and the state prosecutors say that major reforms and oversight are desperately needed, in order to avoid further failures and false economic reports.
The good news, if it's true; is that the state of Oklahoma is not in violation of federal laws and will not be sanctioned in the way that the State of Kansas was for misdirecting federal funds while Kathleen Sebelius was governor (she later became Obama's Health Dept. Secretary and orchestrated most of the regulatory policies of ObamaCare.
Some are expressing skepticism of this outcome. A theory suggests that Oklahoma political forces influenced the AG not to confirm the worst fears of those who are loudly calling for more oversight, audits, and accountability.
In fact, the prosecutors expect that the Health Department will release that emergency cash infusion back to the state treasury. Even better news is that the state will likely not have any federal sanctions from this.
