Republican candidates for Oklahoma House District 5, Terry Neese and state Sen. Stephanie Bice, debated August 18 at Tower Theatre in Oklahoma City. 

While the candidates discussed COVID-19 response, China and social security, much of the debate was centered around the potential impact of leaked recordings of Terry Neese. 

The audio training tapes were allegedly made by Neese for her business.

Recording: “You're going to make a fake phone call and ask for the doctor. Don't ask for him by name so you don’t get yourself in a ringer.” 

During a debate Tuesday hosted by NonDoc and moderated by News 9’s Aaron Brilbeck, Congressional candidate Terry Neese called the recordings lies. 

In a series of leaked training tapes - made decades ago, business woman Terry Neese is allegedly heard instructing employees at her personnel service to lie to clients and to make pretend phone calls.

Recording: “This is where Hollywood and acting become a big part of this business.”

When asked about the recordings, Neese said she never bothered to listen to them. Her opponent, State Sen. Stephanie Bice said they could negatively impact the outcome of the election. 

"It's pretty damning and this is the type of stuff the Democrats will us against us in November. And I think this is the type of stuff where you have to ask yourself if you believe that information, and the impact it has," said Senator Stephanie Bice.

While Bice said she wasn't sure of where the information was coming from, Neese insisted Bice was responsible.

“It was your Stephanie!" said business woman Terry Neese. 

“That is unequivocally false,” said Bice.

Neese responded, “No, it’s not. I know the truth.”

While things briefly got contentious between the candidates, they agreed on some things. They both said the President is doing an incredible job and they want to continue to bring conservative values to Washington.
