Another corrupt Donald Trump lackey *shocker*.
On Monday, it was revealed that a former Oklahoma state senator, who also served as a county campaign coordinator for Dirty Donald’s 2016 presidential campaign, has agreed to plead guilty to a child sex trafficking charge. Man, oh man.
Ralph Shortey resigned from his post in March after he was charged with soliciting sex from a 17-year-old boy. It’s said the disgraced politician is planning to enter his plea on November 30 — which is two weeks before his scheduled trial date.
In exchange for the guilty plea, prosecutors are expected to drop three counts of child pornography against Shortey. Regardless, Shortey could still face a life in prison sentence for the child sex trafficking charge. Oof.
On the plea bargain, the controversial Republican’s lawyer noted:
“Mr. Shortey feels this is a necessary step in putting this painful and humiliating ordeal behind him, for both himself, his family and for the state of Oklahoma.”
The married father of four will likely be sentenced in early 2018. Is it too early to chant, “Lock him up”?
