Republican Oklahoma Senator Caught On Tape With Teen Male Prostitute
Body cam footage has been released by police of former Republican state Senator Ralph Shortey being caught in a motel room with a teenage male prostitute.
Ralph was a senior member of Donald Trump’s primary campaign team in Oklahoma, reports Pink News. He quit earlier this year after being arrested on child prostitition charges.
The age of consent in Oklahoma is 16, but child prostitution law applies to those under 18. The boy he was caught with was 17 years old.
In the footage, an officer directs the lawmaker: “You have a juvenile in your motel room… come out before you get me worried. Show me your hands.”
Ralph responds: “I’m sorry guys. You’re kinda freaking me out a little bit.”
The police officer adds: “Yeah. That’s what we do. He’s 17.”
