Will Fourkiller is seen her with Dan Kirby, and the assistant who later charged that Kirby sexually harassed her.
A list of candidate withdrawals
Without any fanfare or press release, Will Fourkiller has withdrawn his candidacy for reelection this year. The incumbent was facing 2 challengers within his party and a Republican nominee in the general election. Fourkiller became the 2nd named member of the House to be investigated in December of 2016, shortly after securing more than 62% of the vote in the previous month. His wrongs were mild compared to Dan Kirby's. Kirby resigned but Fourkiller faced a reprimand and mild sanctions. It appears he made an off-color comment to a teen female page. There is no indication that Fourkiller will cut short his term. The House is hoping to adjourn within 2 weeks.
The news of Fourkiller's decision to end his public service was only made known when we were researching the list of candidate withdrawals, at the state election board's website.

"No politician 'checks off every box" in your list of issues. You have to prioritize and use personal discretion regarding every current and future issue that you can imagine. Then you have to also judge integrity & consistency. A candidate's openness to study the issues & courage to think for themselves. Then you need to review their honesty & work ethic. I respect any voter's decision, when they've informed themselves and took voting seriously." - David Van Risseghem
SoonerPolitics.org is committed to informing & mobilizing conservative Oklahomans for civic reform & restored liberty. We seeks to utilize the efforts of all cooperative facets of the Conservative movement... Content of the diverse columns are solely at the discretion of the dozens of websites who create the content. David Van Risseghem is the founder of this platform. Sooner Politics News is a platform, not a media site. All our bloggers get their feeds promoted regardless of content. As soon as We suppress or delete even one posting, we become an endorser of whatever We didn't censor..The publisher doesn't (and could not) logically agree with all the content, so we would not expect any rational reader to agree, either. What we do hope, is that readers will think for themselves, and at least be better informed of the issues, events, and values that our citizen journalists work hard to provide for free.. We automate much of the tasks so that our sources' content gets as much exposure as possible. We encourage constructive discussion & debate. The solution is more free speech, not less.
