The Oklahoma Democratic Party is calling for an investigation against Gov. Mary Fallin and other state officials after an investigative news report was released Wednesday.

The party's leadership will hold a press conference at 10 a.m. Thursday in the state Capitol press room to call for an investigation into the conduct of Fallin, state Attorney General Scott Pruitt and Fallin's general counsel Steve Mullins. 

A report by News 9's partner The Frontier and the Dallas Morning News indicated that Fallin may have interfered in an official investigation of the Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision at the request of former Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

According to the report, Perry received campaign contributions from a surgeon being investigated. The surgeon, Dr. Steven Anagnost, still practices in Tulsa and other locations in the state.

"Texas Gov. Rick Perry wasn’t happy when Oklahoma authorities wanted to revoke the medical license of a Tulsa surgeon accused of performing operations that left patients paralyzed, in perpetual pain – or dead," the report stated.
