OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Republican candidates in the race for the open congressional seat in eastern Oklahoma are sparring over the latest attack ad that highlights federal gun charges against a former employee of Markwayne Mullin.

The ad by George Faught's campaign that began airing this week details the conviction of former Mullin Plumbing employee Timothy Saylor on federal gun charges. It goes on to suggest that Mullin himself could face charges in connection with the investigation, a claim that Mullin campaign manager Tim Ross dismissed Thursday as "laughable."

Saylor was arrested by Broken Arrow police in 2009 after officers raided a Mullin Plumbing office in the Tulsa suburb and seized several firearms. Saylor eventually pleaded guilty, and Broken Arrow police say they consider the investigation closed.
