Court documents released previously included an affidavit that revealed some of the graphic details of the case.
According to the affidavit, Shortey offered to pay the teen for “sexual stuff” so he could raise money for Spring Break.
Prior to his resignation, the Senate passed a resolution to suspend Shortey from all committees and strip his name from all legislation.
The ‘traditional values’ politician, who is married with children, was discovered in a hotel room with a 17-year-old boy who, according to authorities, Shortey had hired as a prostitute.He said: "The video is shocking; however this is the reality of fatal collisions.The emotions people may experience after seeing this video can only touch the surface of those feelings that families and friends go through when losing a loved one in this way.In the footage, an officer directs the lawmaker: “You have a juvenile in your motel room… Show me your hands.” Shortey is shown to be wearing a t-shirt quoting a Bible verse (Ephesians ) about women submitting to their husband’s will, along the phrase ‘Go make me a sandwich’. You’re kinda freaking me out a little bit.” The police officer adds: “Yeah. He’s 17.” The politician initially claimed he was the teen’s mentor, and that they were “just hanging out and talking about life…I’m trying to help him get his life on track”.Shortey later surrendered himself to face charges and resigned from the Oklahoma Senate.Last month as part of a plea deal, Shortey admitted one count of child sex trafficking and the other charges were dropped.
