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."
