Inhofe: Botched Oklahoma Execution Shouldn’t Change Death Penalty

Lead in text: 
Sen. Jim Inhofe tells RollCall.com he doesn't think executions should be halted in the aftermath of the botched execution of Clayton Lockett.
Sen. James M. Inhofe doesn't have much sympathy for the man who died after a bungled execution attempt on Tuesday, and doesn't think it should lead to a change in the death penalty. Inhofe, the senior senator from Oklahoma, said more attention should be paid to the suffering of the victim of 38-year-old Clayton Lockett.
