State Sen. Ralph Shortey (R-OKC) has officially been charged with three felonies related to child prostitution, after police discovered Shortey with a teenage boy at a motel in Moore last week.

Shortey turned himself in around noon, and posted his $100,000 bond around 2:00pm. KFOR has more details, along with disturbing and graphic details of the exchanges between the 35 year-old Shortey and the 17 year-old boy.

Yesterday, the State Senate voted to strip Shortey of just about everything short of outright removal from office - his committee vice-chairmanship and memberships, authored legislation, executive assistant, office, parking spot, and state-issued laptop.

If he doesn't resign before Monday, I'd expect the State Senate to move to expel him.
