Dr. Samuel Craig

Dr. Samuel Craig of Muskogee has filed a complaint with the national office of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, alleging that the Muskogee branch is being run by corrupt and shady people.

Craig, who ran for president of the branch in November, alleges the branch did not follow bylaws compelling it to publish notice of the impending election, resulting in a voter turnout of just 15 people. The branch also has numerous deceased people on the roll as active members, he alleges, and the incumbent president exerted undue influence by hovering over the polling place during the election.

Craig also alleges that the current president, Rev. Rodger Cutler, is misappropriating NAACP funds without approval through the proper channels.

Cutler, who said he was unaware of Craig’s November letter, says there is no truth to Craig’s allegations.

“I want to emphatically say that this was an election year and unfortunately, Mr. Craig ran for president and did not win,” Cutler said. “Based on his many attempts to discredit me, he didn’t win and he’s acting in a disgruntled manner — what he’s stating is not true.”

The letter was not accompanied by the required number of signatures of co-complainants, so it’s unclear if the NAACP will act upon it or not.
