Chelsea Church removed from state pharmacy board

(RNN Texoma) - The state pharmacy board has voted to terminate its executive director amid a bribery scandal.

Chelsea Church is under investigation by OSBI after authorities saw texts between her and Julie Ezell. Ezell recently resigned as the top attorney for the state board of health. The texts appeared to show Church offer Ezell a job at her agency if she wrote medical marijuana rules requiring a pharmacist at dispensaries.

That investigation is ongoing. The board voted unanimously to remove Church from the position.
