  Brinkley had been in line to become the next leader of the Oklahoma State Senate.    He was fired by the Better Business Bureau in April. The Better Business Bureau on Friday filed a lawsuit against Brinkley seeking to recover more than $1 million. The suit alleges the money was used for personal expenses and gambling.
