NonDoc (Oklahoma): Ambiguous social media rule leaves legislators in an ethical limbo

NonDoc (Oklahoma): Ambiguous social media rule leaves legislators in an ethical limbo. “State law holds strict rules preventing elected officials from using public resources for campaigning. Traditionally, this has meant that officeholders cannot solicit or receive donations in state-owned buildings or use state-owned phones or email accounts to conduct campaign business. When it comes to social media, however, the rules are not as well established, and many incumbents often stray into ethically ambiguous territory by using social media both to communicate with their constituents and to promote issues and campaigns.”
