OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - All 22 Oklahoma Senate Democrats have
signed a letter to Senate President Pro Tem Glenn Coffee demanding
that he resign his post if he does not immediately provide details of a $29,000 federal income tax lien and a bank loan used to pay off the debt.
Tuesday's letter says the Oklahoma City Republican's refusal to come forward with information has raised questions about his sources of income and the conditions of the loan.
The Democrats say Coffee is obligated to provide answers to their questions because of his position as Senate leader, second in line of succession to the governor.
A spokesman for Coffee did not immediately respond to questions about the Democrats' demands.
