Political Scandals, Special Elections & Special Session

Sep 15, 2017

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Norman Democratic Representative Emily Virgin (sitting in for Ryan Kiesel) about the scandals involving Woodward Republican Senator Bryce Marlatt for allegations of sexual battery against an Uber driver and former Governor Fallin Aide Travis Brauer who is charged with evidence tampering in accusations of taking photos up a woman's skirt during a committee meeting.

The trio also discusses special elections which saw the Democrats steal a House seat from Republicans in Norman and the GOP stealing the Oklahoma County Sheriff's seat from the Democrats, who hadn't lost since the 1920s. Plus, the looming special session which Governor Fallin plans to call for September 25th.
