The Top Ten
#10 - Bob Anthony
Starting at #10, we list Corporation Commissioner Bob Anthony. When
first elected in 1988, Anthony was not a favorite of most conservatives.
Born into one of Oklahoma's most illustrious business families (C.R.
Anthony), most assumed he was just a rich guy looking for a new toy to play
with. How wrong we were. Anthony has often been alone in fighting corruption
at the Corporation Commission. Readers of our series on the mysterious death
of Norman businessman Ron Miller know that we have some very large questions
about the commission. Had it not been for the courageous work of
Commissioner Anthony, the bribery scandal, which sent one former
commissioner to prison, would probably never have been unraveled.
