OKLAHOMA CITY — A state Senate leader said Thursday that state law will not be changed to allow candidates to use donations for personal expenses.

Sen. Roger Thompson, R-Okemah, said a proposal permitting personal use of campaign funds was just a conversation starter.

“I think we need to be held accountable. I think the ethics department needs to be here, but it needs to be realistic of the world we live in today,” Thompson said.
