In a disturbing story, officials have confirmed that Ralph Shorty, a Republican State Senator from Oklahoma and former state chair for the Donald Trump campaign in Oklahoma, is being brought up on charges related to being found in a Super 8 motel with an underage boy.
According to Oklahoma’s KOCO news, these felony charges were officially filed this morning. Shorty’s bills have been reassigned and his name has been removed from his parking place at the state capital.
The charges include soliciting prostitution of a minor, prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church, and transporting with the purpose of prostitution.
