The Special Committee's final report showed that There had already been another investigation of Kirby in late Summer. Former Speaker Jeff Hickman succeeded in keeping the investigations under wraps during the election season. But in Hickman's last day of state service, he signed a secret settlement agreement with one of the women filing a wrongful termination claim. It cost the taxpayers upwards of $50,000. It was not for the abuse Kirby, but for Hickman's own idiocy in terminating the employee just weeks after coming forward. He was covering his own screw up.
So the Special Committee Report was scathing. Kirby was to be the first member ever expelled from the Oklahoma House. Fourkiller was severely rebuked by the committee and severe sanctions placed upon him for the next year. The committe determined that not only was Fourkiller vulgar and rude, he was behaving so toward female minors whose parents agreed to let serve as volunteer pages to the House for the great experience of a close up knowledge of how the chamber operates.
