Walters is bad news


It’s not really a news bulletin that State Superintendent Ryan Walters is a bit on the eccentric side.

And that’s putting it mildly.

He has been less than transparent in his approach to the office so much so that the Oklahoma House of Representatives issued a subpoena to force Walters to produce certain documents and information no later than 3 p.m. January 5.

State Rep. Mark McBride, R-Moore, said Walters has complied with the subpoena.

Truth is, however, they shouldn’t have to issue a subpoena for Walters to be transparent.
