FDL: An official "no" from Oklahoma AG to the foreclosure fraud settlement

We also have our first official “No,” from a Republican who probably thinks the penalty for foreclosure fraud should be a thank-you note delivered to the banks:
One state, Oklahoma, has officially declined to participate, according to one of the persons who said a national settlement could come as early as Thursday. Representatives of the state’s Republican attorney general, E. Scott Pruitt, did not respond to requests for comment.

Some hard-hit states did make their support public on Tuesday. Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette, for example, said in a statement he was joining the settlement.
