Hofmeister was first elected in 2014 but was embroiled in a scandal in 2016 when she was arrested on conspiracy and illegal campaign contributions charges. All charges were dismissed on Aug. 1, 2017.

During Hofmeister’s tenure as state superintendent, Oklahoma saw one of its biggest teacher walkouts in state history. The walkout lasted from April 2 to April 12.
