This Tuesday, an Oklahoma State Senator was charged with child prostitution after being caught in a hotel room with an underage boy. Three felony charges were filed against Ralph Shortey by Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn. The charges include engaging in child prostitution, engaging in prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church, and transporting a minor for prostitution, according to KFOR. In the wake of Shortey's arrest, LGBT advocacy groups pointed out his support for anti-LGBT legislation such as a proposed "bathroom bill" from last year.

This Tuesday,

...over four years ago. Necropost much?

The author of the article desperately tried to make a connection where there is none. Unless you believe everyone who opposes sex desegregation in bathrooms and locker rooms is secretly a child sex trafficker.
