Just got a news flash from the Journal Record with astounding news:
STATE HOUSE SPEAKER RESIGNS POST OVER TAX FLAP
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Republican House Speaker Lance Cargill resigned from the House's top job Monday following published reports that he submitted late property tax payments and failed to file state personal income tax returns. Cargill notified members of the House's GOP majority of his resignation by telephone during a conference call that Republican House members took in their individual offices. Cargill did not appear personally before caucus members but planned to make a public statement later Monday.
