UPDATE: The DA investigating the accusation declined to file charges, according to documents obtained by NewsChannel 8.

The campaign mailer from Bob Jack was trying to convey his stance on police, 'Defend the police, don't defund them,' but the flyer also conveyed something else.

"We really were, found this to be objectionable," said Cynthia Little.

She noticed that the mailer that was sent to her also included an application for ballot by mail, and that her full name, address, and birthday had been pre-printed on the postcard.

"Having my information including my birthday, I really felt like it put me at risk for identity theft and it was an invasion of my privacy," she said.

"I have had a few phone calls from Republicans around Tulsa asking me questions about it," said Mike Ford.

He is a former chairman of the Tulsa GOP and says in addition to concerns of identity theft, there's the overall Republican stance on mail in ballots.

"As a former Republican official I’m a little bit put off that, again every Republican in the entire country is saying we need to stop flooding the electorate with mail ballots, except for Bob Jack," he said.

Bob Jack declined an on camera interview but told us that he "did not authorize or have knowledge that the company processing the flyer would include that information." He also emailed us images of the draft that he approved. He also stated that "DOB is public information and people need to understand that."

"I object to anybody putting my date of birth on something without my approval and sending it to me or sending it out in the mail that way," said Little.

Mr. Jack also expressed concern about the timing of this story and that an opponent is using Channel 8.

"I’m not working on anybody’s campaign, I’m definitely not working on his opponents campaign, I’m not working on anybody’s campaign," said Ford.

"Nobody else has reached out to me, this is my own personal opinion of the fact that I felt like it was inappropriate when I received it by mail," said Little.
