Senator Shortey Should Suspend Himself from Official Activities

OKLAHOMA CITY – Statement from Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair, Mark Hammons:

While a final resolution should await completion of the police investigation, Sen Ralph Shortey owes it to his constituents and all taxpayers to suspend himself from all official activities. This is far too embarrassing to have him speak, vote or represent Oklahoma on any issue.
