OKLAHOMA CITY - State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister pleaded “not guilty” Friday to accusations after she was charged with campaign fundraising violations and conspiracy.
Hofmeister along with Stephanie Milligan, Steven Crawford, Lela Odom and Robert Holland are accused of circumventing state campaign finance laws by conspiring to funnel corporate contributions into a negative campaign against Hofmeister's Republican opponent, Janet Barresi.
Hofmeister became just the second Republican to lead the state's 700,000-student public school system.
