OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Several agency and elected officials are testifying in the trial of a former state legislator accused of bribing a Senate colleague with a job offer.
Two state senators were among those who testified Thursday in the trial of former state Rep. Randy Terrill. The Moore Republican is charged with offering a former Democratic colleague an $80,000-a-year state job in exchange for her withdrawal as a candidate for re-election in 2010. Prosecutors allege Terrill masterminded the scheme so that a Republican colleague of Terrill's could seek the open seat.
Democratic state Sen. Al McAffrey testified Leftwich told him she planned to run for re-election in 2010 and that he helped coordinate a fundraiser for her race the month before she announced she wouldn't seek re-election.
