Governor Sets Date for Shortey Replacement Election
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has set the dates for a special election to fill the seat of a former state senator who stepped down while facing felony prostitution charges involving a 17-year-old boy.
A special general election will be held Sept. 12 to fill the seat in south Oklahoma City left vacant after state Sen. Ralph Shortey resigned last week.
Shortey has been charged with three felony counts after police say he solicited sex from the teen.
