OSBI probes bribery claims against Shawnee city commissioner


The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations has confirmed that it just finished an investigation on whether a Shawnee City Commissioner tried to bribe another commissioner. Spokeswoman Jessica Brown said the report was given to Pottawatomie County District Attorney Richard Smothermon on Friday.

The claims come from former Shawnee Ward 1 City Commissioner Gary Vogel.

Though Brown has said by state law she can’t share the OSBI report, Vogel alleges that a fellow commissioner, as well as three others in the community, had tried to pressure him to vote in support of de-annexation items brought to the commission.
