Once again we are seeing a so called married conservative getting busted with under age boys in motel rooms. This time around, we have the displeasure of reporting on Oklahoma GOP State Senator Ralph Shortey who was forced to resign last week after being busted with a 17 year-old male online escort.

Former Senator ‘Ralph Shortey; was busted at a Super 8 motel room with the 17-year-old on March 9. During the course of the investigation, police discovered that Shortey had offered the underage boy money for “sexual stuff”. While that sounds like an innocent young man being caught up in a situation, it is not.

Police also allegedly found that the teen had a history of soliciting Gay sex on Craigslist according to his parents.

NBC News reported..”The 35-year-old republican is involved with teens on a regular basis through the YMCA Youth in government program and as a senior staffer at Boys State.”

Ralph Shortey also had another stent of bad luck when prosecutors revealed that they had an affidavit that revealed text messages between Shortey and the 17 year-old teen.

According to the affidavit, Shortey asked the teen in the text messages if he would be interested in “sexual stuff” in exchange for money, the 17 year-old responded “Hey keep updated cause I want you bad daddy.” according to the affidavit.

Shortey responded by texting “I’m gonna f**k you like a good little boy if you keep calling me daddy.” A followup text from the teen referenced bareback sex and his “man pu**y” which then Shortey responded by texting a correction to the teen…“Boy pu**y, baby boy.”

The Oklahoma State Senate passed a resolution Wednesday March 15 to suspend Shortey from all committees and strip his name from all legislation. Shorty was no longer able to occupy his office or parking spot and was ordered to return all state property in his possession. Shortey’s seat was empty as the vote passed unanimously.
