Trump Campaign Chair Caught in Motel Room with Teen Boy

The Oklahoma Constitution says, "Each House may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member".

"Ralph Shortey owes it to his constituents and all taxpayers to suspend himself from all official activities", Mark Hammons, Oklahoma Democratic Party chair, said in a statement.

The measure strips Shortey of his committee positions, his work office, his legislative assistant, his parking space and his right to author any legislation now before the Legislature, among other things. NewsOK reports Shortey has been married to his high school sweetheart since 2002 and that he studied at Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City in preparation for mission work in Uganda.

Shortey has not spoken publicly about the investigation. Shortey had been at the Capitol earlier that day. She says they take the allegations very seriously. He said he is awaiting the investigator's final report before deciding whether any criminal charges are warranted.

Shortey, 35, represents Oklahoma City. According to a police report, officers searched the teen's tablet and found several sexually explicit messages from Shortey, including one offering money for "sexual stuff". With Kirby's departure, Tulsa residents of House District 75 have been without representation in the Legislature's lower chamber this session.

All pages scheduled as of Wednesday under the sponsorship of Shortey for the remainder of the 2017 legislative session shall be under the sponsorship of the president pro tempore, and no additional pages shall be scheduled under the sponsorship of Shortey for the remainder of the 2017 legislative session. He was first elected in 2010 and recently received attention for controversial bills. Debbe Leftwich announced she would not seek re-election. When police advised the man that they would have management open the door, the man opened the door and a juvenile male tried to exit the room with the man standing behind the door.

The district attorney has not seen the investigative report yet and won't comment any further at this point.

Christian lost that race but is running again this spring owing to the resignation of longtime sheriff John Whetsel.

As a hard-liner on immigration, Shortey endorsed Donald Trump back in 2015 and served on his Oklahoma leadership team; he also recently had lunch with Donald Trump, Jr., according to the New York Daily News.
