Legislators took gifts, trips from lobbyists

Nolan Clay of The Oklahoman used state disclosure reports to find that "Oklahoma politicians, their aides and relatives accepted at least $125,000 worth of meals, drinks, football tickets and other gifts last year." Many of the freebies were associated with the state's college athletic programs, including season tickets to football games at Oklahoma University and Oklahoma State University. Golf outings and tickets to the NCAA Final Four basketball games were among the other gifts given by lobbyists and colleges.
