Top Travel Websites Sued by Oklahoma

Expedia and company being sued by Oklahoma

Apparently, the governor of Oklahoma has spearheaded a lawsuit to sue four top travel websites for absorbing tax money meant for his state. The lawsuit is going after Expedia, Priceline, Orbitz and Travelocity (as if these are really different websites from each other), saying that they only pay taxes for the wholesale value of the hotel rooms they book rather than the actual price.

The governor stated that these websites have, “cheated taxpayers out of hundreds of millions of dollars.”

What the hell is he thinking? Does he really believe that this many people are audacious enough to WANT to stay overnight in Oklahoma?
