Documents link group, ‘dark money’



Coalition for Oklahoma’s Future spent nearly $9,000 more in the race on polling and surveys in the days leading up to the primary. Jolley won. The Coalition also spent money that month in support of two other candidates who were clients of A.H. Strategies.

Meanwhile, the Coalition was making payments to A.H. Strategies, where Alexander had worked, in the days before the primary. Ethics Commission records show that the Coalition paid A.H. Strategies a total of $7,500 on June 15, June 21 and June 22, 2012. The purpose of the payments was described as “Retainer.”

The Coalition made a fourth payment of $2,500 to A.H. Strategies on Aug. 28, 2012, records show. The purpose was “contract services.”

Neira, Jolley and an attorney for Alexander did not return calls Friday for comment.
