Across the Desk - S6:E3 (The Corruption of OK Ed. Sec. Ryan Walters)

This week on Across the Desk. Kit highlights the corruption and the failure in ethics, morals, and business that is Ryan Walters.. The Education Secretary that allowed private school parents to fleece $8million in education funds while also misclassifying $250K in education funds for guns and ammo purchases. All of this along with the conflict of interest that is Ryan Walters is also the Executive Director of a dark money supper PAC called Every Kid Counts, that also pays Ryan Walters $120K per year. And want does Every Kid Counts do? They advocate for state education contracts and public education money for private schools.... Sound shady? You bet! And it's all this week on Across the Desk...

ICYMI: Across the Desk - S6:E2 (OK U.S. House Reps Vote 'No' On 2 Important Bills)

Two bipartisan bills passed the U.S. House of Representatives last week. One respects the marriage of citizens who marry those they love. Be it interracial, homosexual, or even interfaith. And another that protects the right for adult, tax paying, free American citizens to access birth control, including information on birth control. Well, the Oklahoma House delegation all voted 'NO' on these bills... But there is good news in all of this, as these two bipartisan bills PASSED the House and are likely to pass the Senate and be signed into law... Protecting marriage and contraception for all American citizens....

Well, the Oklahoma House delegation all voted 'NO' on these bills... And when there are only 47 nay votes out of near 220, that tells you exactly just how extreme and radical the conservative delegation from Oklahoma really is. But there is good news in all of this, as these two bipartisan bills PASSED the House and are likely to pass the Senate and be signed into law... Protecting marriage and contraception for all American citizens....

Million-Dollar Settlement For Oklahoma County Inmate Death Will Raise Property Taxes

Thank you Clay Bennett, The Greater OKC Chamber and the OK County Jail Trust... The neo-fascism (the merger of commerce and government) experiment that is going to cost the property owners of OK County higher property taxes over the next 3 years.... Way to go Conservatives! You found a way to increase taxes through a major fiasco.... Because I am pretty sure, when the Sheriff was in charge of the jail.. This stuff did not happen...

(This is why a 25% turnout for voting gets you the government you deserve...)

S6:E1 (The OKGOP Has A Pervert Problem)

What's the big news in Oklahoma over the past few weeks? That would be Conservative pedophiles. One Oklahoma College Republican President has been arrested for lewd acts with a minor, while a deposition of Sen. James Lankford from 2010 surfaces about his assertion that a 13 year old can consent to sex... And all this just a few years after a (R) Oklahoma Senator, Ralph Shorty, was convicted of meeting a minor in Moore, OK hotel room to have sex and smoke weed.... The OKGOP has a pervert problem...
