My oh my…..  Illegal firearm purchases, explosives, ATF raids, reckless endangerment, violent criminality, lawlessness, reckless, fatally flawed are just a few of the things linked  to republican Markwayne Mullin, according to Oklahoma GOP state senator – George Faught campaign website (as of 9/2012).  Oklahoma State Senator Faught  who lost to Mullin in GOP runoff for US congress  Oklahoma district 2 , did a luke warm endorsement of Mullin via his official campaign website.   But that’s not the only thing on his campaign website in reference to Mullin as he used some strong worded characterization of Mullin which is hardly an endorsement for the job as public servant or even entering one’s home to fix the plumbing for that matter  … well.. you know… ah…. I wont be calling his plumbing company to fix the faucet.  And No .. I wont be voting for Mullin either.

In case Oklahoma & National GOP got wind that some of those pages that were still Live as of  9/18/2012 on Faught’s website & they put pressure on Faught to scrub it down, I had already web captured Faught’s campaign website back in September 19, 2012.  The video files were embedded from another external site.  When I checked to look at Faught’s campaign sight again I found most of the incriminating stuff against Mullin had been scrubbed off.  I figured the power-that-be of the GOP got hold of him.

Considering all this, I found it another matter that’s troubling to me &  that was recently brought to my attention since Im blogging stuff that may not be to Mullin’s liking.   Its the issue about his campaign allegedly threatening a Claremore Daily Progress female reporter –  Salesha Wilken.  I hope Mullin nor his campaign play rough with me for my bucking him w/my reporting on the internet.   Oh well, I guess time will tell.  But I  find it necessary to post this issue before matters get turned up a  notch – JUST IN CASE!

Will FourKiller (D-OK) Fights against abolishing Oklahoma Affirmative Action Law

William (Will) FourKiller, democrat incumbent for re-election 2012 as state representative, supports Oklahoma “affirmative action law” & said that it needs to stay intact.  There is a proposed eradication of affirmation action from Oklahoma law that will on voting ballot in the general election – November 2012.  FourKiller says that he believes in the affirmative action law whole heatedly, and that as a minority himself, he feels that we need that opportunity to not be discriminated against in employment, contracts, etc..  He added that affirmative law is working as it was intended to work &  that there was no reverse discrimination as certain others claimed it was.  He did mentioned that proposed abolishing of affirmative action in Oklahoma, was a political move by a state house member who was seeking to be promoted to speaker of the house.  It was not until later today, that I had learned that a T.W. Shannon was the 1 who presented this anti-affirmative action initiative.

FourKiller said that he was OSU to explain this affirmative action law that is threatened to be abolished by the republican held House of the Oklahoma state legislature.   He said that he explained to the NAACP OSU chapter that the Affirmative Action question on the 2012 ballot also affects women that young women especially need to attention as it affects gender as well.   The affirmation law on the ballot will be SQ (State Question) 759 & that if voters want to keep that law then VOTE NO.

His opponent, Russell Don Turner – a republican, was interviewed on Affirmative Action law repeal.  Turner response was negative towards affirmative action law.  Turner indicated the law was no longer needed & causes division.

FourKiller currently is a state representative for house district 86 in Oklahoma.  District 86 covers northeast Cherokee county,  southern Delaware county and all of Adair county.

This interview was videoed at the Armory center in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on October 9, 2012 after a political forum sponsored by Tahlequah chamber of commerce.

Calvin, Oklahoma use non-partisan efforts for political candidate participation at its forum

Joyce Sells – coordinator of the meet-the-candidates forum held at Calvin Senior Citizen Center in Calvin, Oklahoma explains how this political forum was put together. I interviewed her after this forum basically because I was curious why no republican candidates were in attendance. Ms. Sells explained that all candidates were invited regardless of party affiliation. She further explained that deliberate & massive effort and methods were used to reach out to all people to attend & participate in this forum. The methods this coordinator used were: publication in newspapers, invitations were sent to all candidates, and posting of fliers.

At this political candidate speaking forum, there was an estimated attendance of little over a hundred people. It appeared to be standing room only.

The candidates who spoke were running for the following offices: Hughes County sheriff, Oklahoma state house of representatives district 18, and Oklahoma state State district 7. There was 1 other politician who spoke who I do not believe is running – Susan Paddack. All candidates & the politicians who spoke were democrats. As already stated, no republican candidates / politicians were present at this forum.

For the political offices for Oklahoma state house of representatives district 18, there is no republican candidate running. The incumbent is Donnie Condit. Carolyn McNatt is challenging him for that seat.

However, for State Senate district 7, there is 1 republican running for that seat, namely Larry Boggs. Since Boggs is the only republican running, he will not be running opposed in the primaries which will be held on June 26, 2012. But, Roger Shirley & J Paul Lane (both democrats) will run in the June 26th primaries against each other & which ever 1 of them wins in that primary will compete against Larry Boggs. This state senate seat is currently held by democrat Richard C. Lerblance, but he is retiring. So 1 of the 3 candidates (Boggs, Shirley & Lane), if victorious, will be a first timer for this state senate district 7 seat.

According to the Oklahoma Sheriff association website, all candidates running for Hughes county sheriff are democrats.

This political candidate speaking event that was held on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 was located at Calvin Senior Citizen Center (Calvin Nutrition Center) in Calvin, Oklahoma.

Hughes Co Oklahoma jail inmates in unsanitary conditions? Then Undersheriff want 2 cut back on groceries?

As a counter attack on Sheriff candidate Kenny Snyder, the undersheriff Doug Sipes of Hughes County Oklahoma at a political forum defended the sheriff dept as being timely in its response time to police calls.

Sipes complains that there’s only 2 good computers that he feels need upgrade w/new programing so that they could get information from other agencies. And that the jail needs to sell guns so basement can be cleared out.

The county jail sanitation is a problem, as Sipes mention it needs to be disinfected. Considering that this unsanitary jail is where inmates are housed, there may be health & disease issues. However, Sipes wants to bring in commissary snake food and cut back on the kitchen meals. I would had thought that if he’s going to make inmates live in disease infestation, at least he could allow them to keep their strength up with a nutritious cooked meal to give then a fighting chance of survival. Just saying!!

Regarding his credentials that he feels that qualifies him for job as sheriff is his 23 yrs of law enforcement experience.

The other candidates for Hughes County sheriff were: Kenny Snyder,Todd Hignite and Nolen Grizzle . According to the Oklahoma Sheriff association website, all candidates running for Hughes county sheriff are democrats. Doug Sipes & these 3 other candidate wants to be the new sheriff of Hughes County. The current sheriff, Houston Yeager is retiring.

At this political candidate speaking forum, there was an estimated attendance of little over a hundred people. It appeared to be standing room only.

Deputy of Hughes County Oklahoma Sheriff Dept denies that sheriff dept not responding to crime calls

Nolen Grizzle, a deputy for Hughes County Sheriff Dept.  rebuked remarks of  Kenny Snyder who is a candidate for sheriff to replace Grizzle’s boss.    Snyder  had blasted the sheriff department for its slow response time to calls; and that at times the sheriff department would not show up at residents homes when called.

Grizzle is also running for sheriff as the the current sheriff in office  is retiring.  So he shows up at a candidate forum in Calvin,  OK to give his presentation to the voters.    I had seen him before and thought he would be a suitable candidate, but I had never seen the other candidates; nor had I heard Grizzle speak at public events on law enforcement prior to this event.   At the forum he displayed somewhat of a text book over view of law enforcement work as he tried to outline his work history as  a security guard &  private contract prison guard where he said he learned some things about inmates &  as a police officer for a few years. He also disclosed what he had learned from a movie he watched in a class.  Throughout Grizzle’s entire presentation, he failed to point out anything that needed improving within the Sheriff department where he presently works.  Grizzle had the least qualifications in comparison to the other 3 candidates at the candidate forum.

Grizzle introduced himself to the voters in attendance at the Calvin Oklahoma political forum, as a Hughes County deputy sheriff and that he had been working there since June 2011.

The other 2012 candidates for Hughes County sheriff were: Kenny Snyder, Todd Hignite and Doug Sipes. According to the Oklahoma Sheriff association website, all candidates running for Hughes county sheriff are democrats. One of these 4 men will be the new sheriff of Hughes County, as the current sheriff – Houston Yeager is retiring.

At this political candidate speaking forum, there was an estimated attendance of little over a hundred people. It appeared to be standing room only.

This political candidate speaking event which was held on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 was located at Calvin Senior Citizen Center (Calvin Nutrition Center) in Calvin, Oklahoma.
