They wasted no time with this guy, the old bromide about being presumed innocent until proven guilty notwithstanding.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A two-term Oklahoma Republican state senator's fall from political power following his arrest on child prostitution charges has been stunningly fast. Before state Sen. Ralph Shortey was even arrested or formally charged, Senate workers already had scraped his name from his office door, changed the locks and painted over his name in the parking lot.
35, married with three young daughters, now charged with felony solicitation of a 17 year-old guy; this guy really knows what conservatism's all about....
The officers smelled marijuana smoke coming from the room and found Shortey and the teen alone inside.
Easy come, easy go, I guess. At least he's got his name in the media; politicians love that.
