The Oklahoma Bar Association recently announced that it is seeking an investigator.
What was not announced is that it is likely due to the cronyism, lack of honesty and fraud pouring out of General Counsel Gina Hendrix’s office seemingly on a daily basis. In recent decisions the Bar has elected to not punish a judge who illegally incarcerates people (DeLapp), a judge that admits to sexual relations with prosecutors in detriment to the defendants (Henderson), to District Attorneys that allow interns to conduct jury trials without supervision (Kunzweiler).
The practice of law is a noble profession but not in the hands of the current regime at the Oklahoma Bar Association (OBA). It is absurd to think that a District Attorney could allow interns to conduct trials then blame one of his subordinates for the ‘mistake.’ It was no mistake. The DA of Tulsa County headed by DA. Stephen Kunzweiler decided to blame the head of misdemeanors so that DA Kunzweiler and ADA First Assistant Eric Greyless could avoid punishment.
In fact it appears as though interns were handling all the traffic tickets and negotiating plea deals or threatening jail time. Interns held ‘barer paper’ or pre signed forms and tens of thousands of cases could have been effected. Ironically the bar acknowledges some of this as in the public censure of the Assistant DA who they decided to blame they list dozens of dockets each with over a hundred cases.
If you do not have trouble protecting a Judge who sexually assaulted Court staff but yet appears to favor them in their rulings look no further than a job at the OBA. In the matter of Judge Henderson two prosecutors now allege inappropriate physical contact. In the case of one Defendant, Fort, his trial rights have already been restored.
Now this same Bar Association is looking for an ‘investigator.’ If you think you are corrupt enough to apply please go right on ahead because it appears as though this job has less to do about seeking justice and more to do about protecting unethical people who are doing what they do best. In the matter of Curtis DeLapp of Washington County, City of Bartlesville, the Judge resigned his judgeship after falsely incarcerating people, forging documents, and perjuring himself in an official investigation.
Sadly this article is a satire as although the OBA needs investigating they are not hiring to investigate themselves, they are much too crooked for that.
