On Monday, The Frontier posted a story detailing two incidents in 2012 where it was alleged Preston Doerflinger — Oklahoma’s Finance Secretary as well as the interim Commissioner of the Oklahoma State Department of Health — had acted violently toward his then-wife.

Less than 24 hours later, Doerflinger was out, resigning from the OSDH as well as from his roles as Finance Secretary and Director of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services.

Frontier editor Dylan Goforth recently appeared on OETA to discuss his story and the events that followed with host Lis Exon.
