Lt. Governor Todd Lamb Comments on Recent Charges on State Senator

Oklahoma City – Oklahomans deserve to be represented by those above reproach. Ralph Shortey has clearly failed to achieve this minimum standard and had rightfully lost his senate privileges.

As a former law enforcement official, I commend the swift actions of the Moore Police Department and the Cleveland County District Attorney’s office.

In light of the charges filed against him, Ralph Shortey should resign from his seat so the good people of southwest Oklahoma City can move forward with electing a new state Senator.
