Two members of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, both Republicans, were reprimanded today (March 14) at the state Capitol in Oklahoma City.
State Rep. Randy Terrill of Oklahoma City was reprimanded by the House of Representatives for comments, including foul language, eyewitnesses said he made while threatening Speaker of the House Kris Steele.
The incident occurred last Thursday (March 10), according to descriptions made during the debate Monday afternoon. The reprimand drew support from 34 members, with 30 in opposition. One member did not vote.
The remaining members, including every Democrat and several Republicans, took constitutional privilege and were recorded with a “C” next to their name as the vote unfolded.
State Rep. Mike Reynolds of Oklahoma City was reprimanded for behavior toward the chaplain of the day last Thursday, members said. That vote was 67 in favor, 18 against, with a few members taking constitutional privilege rather than voting.
Further details will be forthcoming from CapitolBeatOK.
