OKLAHOMA CITY - As the session of the legislature enters the vital last few days, the Oklahoma City police were called to the capitol on an anonymous tip. The complaint cited was that a few prostitutes were moving in on turf which a rival group was operating in. Officer Jones of the OKC vice Squad said; "It remains illegal to solicit personal services for a fee unless the 'john' is registered. And this 'john' was clearly not a lobbyist for a proper corporate interest." Jones added; "lawmakers are the only individuals not prohibited by law, whereas other common prostitutes will aggressively be prosecuted for soliciting". So both the unidentified man & the prostitute were cited, because he was not previously registering as a lobbyist prior to offering money for services at the state capitol, and she was not covered by legislative immunity. "When you offer money in this capitol complex for these kinds of special favors, law enforcement has a duty to regulate it." The members of the legislature have explicitly exempted only themselves [for obvious reasons], but everyone else must follow the law." One unidentified lawmaker expressed relief about the arrest; "What's this place coming to?" he said.
Back at the station, Captain Anderson released this statement; "On behalf of the OKCPD, let me say that we don't write the law, We just enforce it because that's how an orderly society must operate."
