TULSA–The Better Business Bureau of Tulsa (BBB) is suing Oklahoma State Senator Rick Brinkley.

The organization filed a petition against Brinkley, the BBB’s former chief operating officer, in Tulsa County District court Friday.

In the 18-page document, the BBB alleges that over an extended period of years, “Brinkley grossly and deviously abused his position of trust for his own personal ill-gotten gain.”

It goes on to allege that Brinkley devised a scheme to embezzle an amount of money believed to be in excess of $1 million.

In a statement from Carrie A. Hurt, interim President and CEO of the Tulsa BBB, the Better Business Bureau is seeking damages of at least $1 million after requesting a financial audit from an independent firm.
