Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey, who worked as the Oklahoma state chair for Donald Trump's primary campaign, is under investigation after being caught at a Super 8 motel with a teenage boy.
Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn has confirmed that the boy is around 16 years old, the age of consent in Oklahoma.
Police are reviewing text messages between Senator Shortey, who is 35 years old, and the boy to determine if anything criminal has occurred.
It was those text messages that led the boy's family to call police.
A worker at the Super 8 confirmed to the police that Shorty checked in on March 8, according to their records.
While Shortey has not been arrested or charged with a crime, democratic party leaders are calling on the senator to suspend himself from activities in the senate until the investigation is complete.
Shortey was first elected in 2010 and served as a political consultant for Representative Dan Kirby during the sexual harassment scandal at the Capitol earlier this year.
As a Senator Shortey sponsored a bill that requires presidential candidates to provide their birth certificate in order to get on the ballot in Oklahoma.
Apparently the same does not hold for boys he wishes to cavort with in motel rooms.
Shorty is married with children.
