|Top - Rep Kevin McDugle continues life with his mistress|
Bottom - Rep. Inman receives reconciliation to his wife.
This legislature has lived down to the worst reputation for corruption and moral decadence. Even as the leadership started out the 56th legislative session, they vowed to put an end to the antics of Dan Kirby, Randy Grau, & Will Fourkiller. But within months there were even more. Ralph Shortey was prison bound for his escapades with a 17 year old male prostitute. Bruce Marlatt and Travis Brauer added their scandals to the immoral narrative.
But this summer there emerged more extramarital scandals. One was a Democrat Leader and the other was a Republican freshman. They are both still in office.
- The Democrat chose to humble himself, and beg his wife's redemption. That's the story of the Democrat leader, Scott Inman.
- The Republican abandoned his wife and children and still lives in adultery with the mistress, in an OKC apartment that is paid for with per diem reimbursement from our state govt. That's the story of Republican freshman, Kevin McDugle.
Last fall, Scott Inman was a clear example of the humility we read of in the biblical hero, King David. The biblical patriarch also had a public scandal involving marital infidelity. Like King David, Inman immediately and completely changed his course. His wife confronted him in the rotunda of the state capitol and refused to remain silent in her rage and betrayal.
The arrogance is even more egregious when McDugle produces videos, preaching to Christian men about their duty to be faithful to their wives as Christ gave himself for the church.
