OKLAHOMA CITY - John Miley, general counsel of the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission and husband of Oklahoma Supreme Court Justice Noma Gurich, may have run afoul of a state ethics rule.
Miley says he doesn't believe that he violated the anti-electioneering rule but would do things differently if he had it to do over.
Miley used his state agency email account to send a message to dozens of state agency legal advisers, encouraging them to advocate for the retention of his wife and other state appellate judges in the November general election.
"Most voters turn to attorneys they know for guidance on how to vote in these areas," Miley wrote in the Oct. 1 email. "Please spread the word to your family and friends that we need their vote for retention."
