PAMELA SMITH FILES OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY COMPLAINT WITH THE OFFICE OF THE OKLAHOMA GOVERNOR

On Tuesday, November 26, 2019, Pamela Smith submitted an official government accountability complaint with the Office of Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt.

Smith’s complaint stems from a civil lawsuit she filed in the U.S. District Court of Oklahoma Western District against three stage agencies for deprivation of rights under the Civil Rights Act of 1871.

During the district court proceedings Assistant Attorney General Jon Williford submitted a falsified certificate of service on July 22, 2019, purporting to have mailed a copy of the Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss her Complaint on June 21, 2019.  The July 22, 2019 filing was based on U.S. District Judge DeGuisti’s June 24, 2019 Order instructing the Attorney General to provide Ms. Smith with a copy of the motion to dismiss and to provide a certificate of mailing to the court no later than June 27, 2019.

On Friday, November 22, 2019, Smith submitted irrefutable evidence in the U.S. District Court of Oklahoma Northern District that the certificate of service alleging to have been electronically signed by assistant attorney general on June 21, 2019, was in fact electronically signed on July 22, 2019.

18 U.S. Code § 1519 makes it a federal crime punishable with up to 20 years in prison to falsify or make false entry in any record or document with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States.

Deonna Reardon, a legal aide in the AG’s office, declared under penalty of perjury on November 1, 2019, to have mailed Ms. Smith “…the Appellees’ Motion to Dismiss to Appellant’s identified address on June 21, 2019” and that “No mailing, nor any certificate of mailing, has been backdated or falsified.”

18 U.S. Code § 1621 makes it a federal crime punishable with up to 5 years in prison for making false statements under the penalties of perjury.  18 U.S. Code § 3 makes it a federal crime punishable with up to 15 years in prison for knowingly assisting an offender avoid punishment for his offense.

The egregious nature of the sinister plot involving the Oklahoma Attorney General to undermine the law and deprive Ms. Smith of full and fair opportunity to litigate has exposed the state of Oklahoma and the taxpayers of Oklahoma to extensive litigation regarding the damages against Smith for which Oklahoma is liable.  Governor Stitt, when will there be justice and accountability in the state of Oklahoma?
