Oklahoma congressional delegation mad about fundraising letter
By RANDY KREHBIEL World Staff Writer
Oklahoma’s all-Republican congressional delegation is angry about a letter on Tulsa Regional Chamber of Commerce letterhead promoting a local fundraiser for Louisiana Democrat Mary Landrieu.
A letter issued Sunday and signed by all seven members of the delegation takes the chamber to task for a letter dated Aug. 12 and signed by chamber Chief Executive Officer Mike Neal.
That letter, on chamber letterhead, encourages recipients to attend a fundraiser at the home of former Mayor Kathy Taylor on Wednesday.
The fundraiser is to benefit Landrieu, who is locked in a tight re-election campaign that could decide the balance of power in the U.S. Senate.
