Yet another sad sordid tale of somebody who went into politics for the wrong reasons, and let elected office go to their heads – their little heads.
We hate to report this,…but we’ll never be considered fair if we don’t. Oklahoma Republican State Senator Ralph Shortey had a teenage ‘boyfriend’ shacked up in a Super 8 Motel in Moore – 15 miles south of his district.
Shortey claims to be a Rosebud Sioux who grew up on the Grass Mountain Reservation in Wyoming, before moving to Oklahoma City – where he (ugh) lives with his wife and two daughters….
This story cannot have a happy ending…..
UPDATE: Thurs 16 March 2017 Shortey has been charged with three (3) counts: child prostitution, transporting a child for prostitution, and prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church.
UPDATE: Sat, 18 Mar 2017 It gets worse…. The 17-yr old boy’s parents were the ones who called police after following him to the Motel 8. The boy has a history of drug use and soliciting sex on Craig’s List…..and Shortey used the name Jamie Tilley – for OVER A YEAR – with this teen.
