The ODP Calls for Senator to Resign After Sexual Battery Charges

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Democratic Party condemns all violence and harassment, including sexual assault. State leaders must uphold the public’s trust with integrity and honor, and sexual assault must not be tolerated from any of our lawmakers. In light of sexual battery charges by Oklahoma City Police, Senator Marlatt R-Woodward should immediately step down and resign. Oklahomans deserve to be represented by legislators committed to upholding the high moral standards their oath of office requires.
