Another Republican caught on tape with minor

State Senator Ralph Shortey caught in a hotel room with an underage boy, making the video public days after he pleaded guilty to child prostitution and pornography charges. The Moore Police Department released the footage of the encounter that occurred early on March 9 at a Super 8 Motel in Moore, Okla., Fox 59 reported. The footage showed police knocking on the door of a room occupied by Shortey -- a Republican -- and the underage male. Police said they went to the room after receiving a welfare check call placed by the teen boy's father.


The officers told Shortey he was with a 17-year-old male but the former state senator replied, "Can you show me that he's only 17?"

"I can't," an officer replied. "But I can convince you that he is. I can put you in handcuffs and throw you in the back of the car."


How ironic that it was the "Moore" police.

Well. He's screwed. If the minor was a girl. The GOP would simply look the other way.

Now. He'll have to make a public apology and go to church in order to remain a state senator.

Once again. Republicans don't care.

He's not senator anymore. He facing tens years to life.

#4 sadly the GOP is so bad these days prison is the only way they get removed from office for transgressions.

Because they sure as hell aren't removed by their self-righteous, Chreestian peers.

Well. There you have it. Molestation of a 14 girl is fine. Sex with a 17 year old boy isn't.

Republicans. Can't live with them, can't legally murder them.

This video automatically played in my fb. Very very disturbing to see him open the door. He was wearing some t-shirt with a logo.

The T-shirt says:

Ephesians 5:22

Then a picture of a sandwich.

Then it says: Now go make me a sandwich.

Ephesians 5:22 is: "Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord."

He should have claimed he was a musician.

A flutist?

"Other musicians play in a minor all the time and don't go to jail."
