OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Democratic Party has filed a complaint with the Oklahoma Ethics Commission, alleging several actions taken by Republican Gov. Mary Fallin are potential violations of state ethics rules.

Party Chairman Mark Hammons submitted the complaint Thursday over the governor’s trip with her husband in June to the Paris Air Show and over Fallin allowing her daughter to live in a mobile home parked on the governor’s mansion property. Hammons also alleges a possible violation for the involvement of the governor’s office in an investigation of a Tulsa surgeon by the Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision.

Fallin spokesman Alex Weintz (WENTZ) called the complaint a “baseless, partisan stunt” and said none of the allegations are ethical lapses of any kind.
