Oklahoma state senator, and former state chair of Donald Trump's presidential campaign, caught in hotel room with underage boy. Good morning!

Look at me, I have guns! Would a pedophile have guns?
Courtesy of Raw Story:  

Oklahoma state Sen. Ralph Shortey is under investigation by Moore police after he was caught in a Super 8 Motel room with a minor boy. 

“On March 9 … officers of the Moore Police Department were contacted in reference to a welfare check at a local hotel,” Lt. Kyle Dudley told “Responding officers found a juvenile male in a hotel room which was also occupied by an adult male. The circumstances surrounding this incident are currently under investigation and no additional information can be released at this time.” 

An employee of the hotel confirmed to KOCO that a man named “Ralph Allen Shortey” checked in at approximately 12:20 a.m. asking for a room with two beds. Just 30 minutes later the police arrived responding to a “welfare check,” though no one has come forward admitting to the call. 

No one has been arrested and no charges have been filed, but text messages between the boy and Shortey are being investigated by police. Shortey’s legislative office door was found to have a note saying that he would be gone for the week.

Okay, okay this was probably nothing.

After all every day you find a grown man in a hotel room with a young boy, not related to him, for perfectly legitimate reasons.


No, that's actually not right is it?

Apparently it was the content of those text messages which convinced the boy's parents to call the police, so I think we can assume they were not discussing passages of the Bible.

And it also led the Oklahoma police to issue these three charges against the Republican state senator:

The Moore Police Department on Wednesday announced that it has recommended three prostitution-related charges against State Sen. Ralph Shortey.

The recommended charges include: soliciting prostitution of a minor, prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church and transporting for the purpose of prostitution.

Did I mention that Shortey was Trump's Oklahoma state chair?

Oh, I did?

Well did I mention that he was endorsed by Sheriff Joe Arpaio? Or that Dog the Bounty Hunter once hosted a rally for him?

Because those are true things as well.

Okay well now I have to stop typing this post because my cheeks actually hurt from smiling.

I know, I know, I am a terrible person for taking such delight in this.

    Well, birds of a feather and all that! These family values republicans are a hoot, aren't they? Sure do like the young 'uns. He was probably "counselling this young man". Yeah, right.

  2. When the cops found them in the motel room, was one of them down on his knees? If so, maybe they were holding a prayer meeting . . .

    I bet they WERE discussing Bible verses. And then Shortey invited the child to come with him over spring break and they could really dig into the relevant Bible parts. And Shortey's parts.
    Good for the parents for turning this cretin in. May the stink waft all the way to DC and envelop his mentor.

    Wonder what Shortey's public stance on marijuana is? I'm far too lazy to look up his voting record, but I figure he's totally against pot, publicly.

    He apparently likes to smoke it, in his private time, with his young rent boys at the Super8.

      He'll find Jebus again, repent and ask for forgiveness.

      And they'll give it to him. Yeah, give him another chance.

      Then they'll put on their hoods, go out and find them some homosexuals to burn at the stake.

      mailuppa - you're as bad as "santorum." Homosexual HAS NOTHING TO DO with what was happening in Shortey's hotel room. PEDOPHILIA is the word you are looking for, and PEDOPHILE to refer to Shortey himself. And if a sexual act occurred, the appropriate word is "rape," because a minor cannot give consent.

    Just another deplorable for trump. Does this surprise anyone? "The Silent Majority" from don's john's swamp. Just a pos waiting to be flushed.

    Wanna bet the real reason he arrested him wasn't because he was with a minor, but he was within 1,000ft of a church :)

    Next time he will have to chose a different motel.

    1. Anonymous11:52 AM

      You can't molest a minor within 1,000 feet of a church, but it's ok to do it IN a church.

    1) Loves him some guns.

    2) Loves his wife and family. (So he's forgiven by his christian wife and pastor)

    3) (For the Hypocritical Trifecta)Is he a youth pastor at his church??

      Actually, he is a ephebophile, or a teleiophile, not a pedophile.
      The underaged youth he was with wasn't a little boy.

      Shortey isn't to be considered needing to come out of the closet. Do not even attempt to equivocate what this man has done with merely being gay.
