Rep. Terrill's Hypocrisy: Oklahoma Lawmaker's Sweet Deal for OPEA

Randy Terrill is a piece of work. The Moore lawmaker thinks he was elected to the legislature to help his political pals. 

The Oklahoman on Sunday pointed out that Terrill has been taking care of the state workers union, the Oklahoma Public Employees Association, at the expense of other groups and individuals. Turns out that Terrill supported legislation last year to give the OPEA—but no one else—access to state employee addresses, a neat way to recruit more members.

To the surprise of no one, Terrill has also benefited from OPEA support.

The Tulsa World today blasted Terrill for his hypocrisy. As the newspaper put it, "Terrill should apologize to the state's citizens for treating public records like a personal asset."
