The Oklahoma Republican Party also released a statement:
“The Oklahoma Republican Party takes all accusations against elected officials seriously, especially when the welfare of a minor is involved. We have reached out to Senator Shortey for comment and have not heard back from him at this time. We await the report from law enforcement on whether charges will be filed.”
Apparently the day after Moore police report Ralph Shortey shared a Super 8 Motel room with a boy, Shortey spent time with Donald Trump Jr. pic.twitter.com/84CMjbiPla
