Even though Inhofe tried to hide where he was going to shoot, we found the location, Robbins Farm, which is in Greer County, OK. We set up legally on the side of a public road and then sent up our drone, called the “Angel” to film the shoot.
We know this was deliberate because the shotguns being used to kill pigeons didn’t have the range to hit the Angel. We also recorded the sound of rifle fire so there’s no question about what happened.

The sheriff either doesn't know the law, or he is corrupt and deliberately lying to protect a US senator. Either way, a crime was committed where damage was done to personal property, and local law enforcement is ignoring it.
If any of us took a rifle and shot at another persons personal property, we’d be in jail right now. Whether it is not paying proper sales tax on the birds used for his shoot, or using federal property to hold a political fundraiser and federally funded employees as servants to serve his donors, Inhofe believes that he is not bound by the same rules that you or I are. We also cannot ignore that he held a political fundraiser on 9/11 that involved the mass shooting of living beings for fun. It was disgraceful and as disrespectful as can be.
That’s why we need to continue to put pressure on the members of the United States Senate Select Committee on Ethics to hold him accountable. Please tell them that if they don’t take action against Senator Inhofe, then they will have shown that senators are the privileged few who do not have to obey the law as you or I do.

This morning we sent an email to Tony Mastin, Administrator of the Oklahoma Tax Commission, with the complaint and asking for an investigation. We intend to follow-up and continue to try to hold Inhofe accountable, however, what we discovered when we looked deeper into who Mr. Mastin’s boss was, we realized just how incestuous and corrupt the system is.
The Tax Commission is supervised by the Oklahoma Secretary of Finance and Revenue, a man named Preston Doerflinger. That name may not mean anything to you, but it sure does to us.
When our investigator was undercover at the 2014 Inhofe pigeon shoot, there was a large board on an easel with the names of the “Gold Level Host” of the fundraiser. The name Preston Doerflinger is right there, in the first column.
That means that the man who supervises the tax commission, which should be investigating Senator Inhofe, was actually one of the prime sponsors of the event that is supposed to be investigated.
