Title: Today in Ralph Shortey news...
Post by: Ed W on April 11, 2012, 05:51:14 pm
Underrated super hero Ralph Shortey comes to the rescue of....well, you read it....


Senate Bill 1420, by State Sen. Ralph Shortey (R-Oklahoma City), and State Repres. John Bennett (R-Sallisaw), is a pro-hunting bill that would legalize the use of laser scoping devices for the blind, including disabled veterans and children, when hunting....A physician must certify the person as being disabled, and the person must be permanently statutorily/legally blind as defined by the Social Security Administration, or afflicted with paraplegia or quadriplegia.


Yep...blind people...with guns.  Welcome to Oklahoma.

Latin does not have a word for turkey, so I'd suggest adopting 'shortey' as a substitute.

Post by: cynical on April 12, 2012, 02:02:00 pm
Shortey is a plant. Like Stephen Colbert, he is satirizing the movement. Look at the record:

1. Introduces a bill to ban the use of aborted fetuses in human food.
2. Introduces a bill to submit to the voters the proposition that the Court of Criminal Appeals should be abolished and the Oklahoma Supreme Court not have jurisdiction to review the constitutionality of state legislation.
3. Supports "open carry" legislation because he needs to pack heat to protect himself from turkeys.
5. And now proposes that blind people be allowed to carry firearms. 

Just as Colbert does, all he is doing is taking the Right's ideas to their logical extreme, a classic debating technique, with the evident intent to make them look ridiculous.

You really think so?  He's more convincing than Colbert if that's true, but I doubt it. 
...and the fetus-food ban seemed to be just another back-door attempt at banning abortion.

Look at how he responds to questions:

Cant figure out who is stooping to what level here:


The Oklahoma Senate recognized Duane “Dog” Chapman and his wife Beth for their efforts to establish regulations on bail enforcers and bring fugitives to justice.

On Tuesday, Chapman, formerly the star of the long-running television series, Dog the Bounty Hunter, visited the state Capitol in support of Sen. Ralph Shortey’s Senate Bill 1013, which would create the Bail Enforcement and Licensing Act.

“The Chapmans have been instrumental in bringing some of the country’s most notorious criminals to justice, and now they are helping the states pass legislation to regulate bounty hunters,” said Shortey, R-Oklahoma City. “I’m grateful for their support of this effort to establish common sense requirements for bail enforcers, who play a very important role in law enforcement. This bill will help guarantee the brave men and women who work in this field are equipped with adequate training for the unique challenges they face.”
http://www.fox23.com/news/local/story/Senate-recognizes-Dog-the-Bounty-Hunter/1jOg0RmvbUKcYX5gF7IL0w.cspx

In 2010, Chapman was sued by one of the men he arrested in 2009, who alleged that Chapman falsely claimed the man had shot at him and edited the footage on the show to make it appear that way.

Ah, Ralph. Ralphie, Ralphie, Ralphie. We hardly knew ye.

Ralph earned a dubious 49 percent conservative rating from the Oklahoma Conservative PAC, leading them to declare him a Republican In Name Only. It's like having Vito Corleone walk up and kiss you on the lips, a sure sign that you'll be sleeping with the fishes before long.

He'll have to do something to get his name in the news and re-energize his base. The Sharia law thing is played out and there probably aren't many bands of roving, blood-thirsty turkeys to be found at this time of the year. How about immigration controls on the Texas border? Or a heavy tax on chablis and Volvos, both favorites of the liberal elite. Or how about requiring all men over 18 to wear kilts rather than shorts or trousers? It's the manly thing to do, after all.

This week he's hawking minimal police reform for C.L.E.E.T and the Sheriff's Association:


A proposed bill by Sen. Ralph Shortey, R-Oklahoma City, would increase from 240 to 300 hours the amount of training a reserve officer must receive. Volunteer officers would also be required to obtain at least 12 hours of continuing education annually. None are required now. Both requirements are about half of what is required of full time officers.

Shortey's proposal has been endorsed by the Oklahoma Sheriff's Association and the head of the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training, the state agency that oversees training for law enforcement officers across the state.

State Sen. Ralph Shortey, a Republican who represents the Oklahoma City area, authored a bill that exempts people from lawsuits if they damage drones that veer onto their property.
https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/03/oklahoma-state-bill-would-let-property-owners-shoot-down-drones/




So basically, you wouldnt be sued while you are doing time in Leavenworth for shooting at aircraft.

Most recently, he angered voters when he proposed undoing changes to drug laws approved at the polls last November.

This should be interesting. I wonder if he'll resign "to spend more time with his family."

(Later)

Moore police brought three prostitution related charges against Shortey.

He was Kirby's sex scandal coach so Im sure he has lots of good advice.

He was also the one to suggest revoking the criminal justice reform we passed last November, but its likely he was just following a "suggestion" himself.

Shortey has surrendered himself to Moore PD. A resignation should be forthcoming.

If I understand right, legislators are fully vested in the state retirement plan after 6 years, and Shortey has 6 years of service. So if he resigns prior to a conviction, we taxpayers will still send him regular checks, I think. Am I wrong?

So let me get this, ahem, straight.

Shortey is behind or partially behind (sorry just can't quit) undoing the criminal reform laws we passed last November.  Apparently his underage male hooker has been selling Shortey weed for about a year.

I'm curious how many times those crimes were committed within 1000 feet of a school....Hmmmmm?

Apparently there were lots of "evidence issues" with the no-arrest encounter, everything from why there were no drug charges to at what point in reading the kids text messages they decided they should get a warrant.  
The Affidavit before the District Court of Cleveland County (Case 17-08441) is much more of an eye-opener than the redacted police report.

Now what I want to know is what is Moore Police colorfully calling "raw Marijuana?"  Were they caught munching on great big hemp stalks?

Shortey was eager to put his name on pretty much any "suggested" bill the police unions put in front of him, so it would not be surprising if the investigation was less than thorough (http://www.newson6.com/story/34941809/local-attorney-concerned-about-errors-in-shortey-investigation).

The U.S. Secret Service has confirmed it is joining the investigation of a Republican state senator from Oklahoma City who is facing felony child prostitution charges.  The Secret Service's special agent in charge of the Oklahoma City office, Ken Valentine, confirmed Monday that investigators from his office are assisting in the investigation of state Sen. Ralph Shortey at the request of the Moore Police Department.
Valentine says the agency has access to some of the latest technology for investigating crimes that involve the use of smartphones and computers.

Sources in the Senate tell FOX 25 that Shortey was known to avoid security screenings at the capitol.

A senator or HOR rep avoiding security screenings doesn’t seem that out of place.

Now, why would the USSS get involved?  I figured child trafficking or an internet crime would be under the FBI’s area of interest.

What do you bet this maggot becomes an instant advocate for the SQ’s we passed last November?

Why, in the old days, Democratic scandals involved sex while Republican ones were about money, and abuses of power were evenly split between them. But now! Republicans act like Democrats and vice-versa. No one has a sense of decorum or honors traditions any more. The Republic is doomed.

Damned kids.

House candidate says 'copy and paste' error behind porn entry on expense sheet

Quote
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) — A candidate for the Oklahoma House of Representatives says his treasurer made a "copy and paste" error, leading to a pornographic title being listed on a campaign expense sheet.
Jason Reese says his treasurer has submitted his resignation Thursday morning after the gaffe.

First reported by The Lost Ogle, the porn title appears on Reese's 2nd Quarter Amended expense report for his campaign on a line referencing the company Anedot, Inc., and saying that it cost $10.05.

Reese tells FOX 25 he hired a treasurer to prepare the reports and make sure money donated to the campaign was handled properly. Reese says Anedot is a processing company for campaigns and nonprofits who manages the online donations. He says the $10.05 fee listed is the price withheld by the company when someone makes a $250 donation on his website. He says it's impossible to purchase pornography from Anedot because they're simply a credit card processing company.

Reese is a Republican candidate for State House District 83.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I've often meant to write "donated underwear to Goodwill", for instance, and inadvertently wrote "hot wife Chloe needs to be punished" instead. I hear it's a common error.

Former Oklahoma state senator has agreed to plead guilty to a child sex trafficking offense

It would be ironic if he was one of the lawmakers who pushed to radically expand the definition of "child sex trafficking"
