Carroll Fisher charity received donations from companies he regulated

(Oklahoma City-AP) -- A charity founded by state Insurance Commissioner Carroll Fisher received many donations from companies he regulated.

Fisher created the Fisher Foundation as a charity to provide shoes to needy children. He now faces a felony charge for allegedly operating the charity illegally.

The charity has raised more than $54,000. More than $21,000 came from three golf tournaments organized by insurance adjusters and about $18,000 were donated by various insurance companies.

Fisher says he did not solicit the contributions and isn't influenced by them.

In addition to the felony charge against Fisher, a House committee is investigating whether he should be impeached.

Fisher is also running for the Democratic nomination to the US Senate.
