Moore police release videos of confrontation with senator at hotel

Moore police release videos of confrontation with senator at hotel

The incident in Moore prompted an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Moore Police Department, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the Secret Service.

"We're not going away", a police officer told him. For those who don't know (which I definitely had to look up), Ephesians 5:22 refers to a bible verse stating "Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do the the Lord".

"So, what are they saying?" one of the officers asked the other.

This means Shortey isn't just a hypocrite and a pedophile; he's also a chauvinistic sexist. Yeah, this one", a police told Shortey, to which he replied: "We were just hanging out, talking about life and stuff. He denied knowing that his guest was 17.

Police released the bodycam footage showing the encounter with Shortey, who constantly promoted "Christian" and "family" values as an Oklahoma State Senator before resigning in disgrace in March in the wake of a child prostitution charge.

In the video, Shortey is wearing a T-shirt with a picture of a sandwich, a Bible verse and the words "Now go make me a sandwich". Ralph Shortey, 35, pleaded guilty to federal child sex trafficking last week.

Eventually, police arrested Shortey and accused him of hiring the 17-year-old for sex.

The victim has since turned 18.

In exchange for Shortey's plea, USA prosecutors agreed to drop three child pornography counts against him at his sentencing hearing, which is expected to occur within the next 90 days.

Shortey built a name for himself in the Oklahoma Senate by pushing bills targeting those living in the US illegally and expanding gun rights.

The footage, which was shot in March, shows police knocking on the door of a room occupied by Shortey. She then notified the father.

Shortey tried to play innocent during his arrest, so the full video is worth watching.

The federal indictment against Shortey mentions that he created a Craigslist account under a fake name where he requested anyone responding to his ads communicate with him via Kik, a social media application that allows users to send photos, videos, and text messages.

The officers claimed they then heard a voice inside whispering "hurry up and get dressed" before the teen finally opened the door.
