TULSA, Okla. - Bill Christiansen fires back after threats from Mayor Kathy Taylor's campaign.
The former Tulsa city councilor tells KRMG he did nothing wrong following complaints in a letter from Taylor's lawyers. Christiansen says, "They were certainly looking at the possibility of suing my campaign."
Christiansen provided KRMG a copy of that letter which takes issue with some wording in 'robo-calls' paid for by Christiansen.
The former city councilor says his 'robo-calls' followed the rules. A transcript of those calls points out former Mayor Kathy Taylor's involvement in the Great Plains Airlines controversy.
Christiansen believes 'robo-calls' are part of virtually every campaign. Taylor tells KRMG she has pledged to run her campaign without the use of the automated calls.
Following Christiansen's Monday morning press conference, KRMG reached out to Taylor's campaign.
Taylor's campaign manager emailed KRMG a statement from Taylor: "Despite the fact that Bill Christiansen was on the council during the Great Plains settlement and is in the airplane business, his description of the City’s exposure and involvement is completely incorrect as was the information he put in the robo-call."
