OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO) – Representative Dan Kirby, a sitting member of the House, may be kicked out. If he is expelled, it will be the first time in state history a representative has been removed from office.

Two women have accused Kirby of sexual harassment. A House investigative committee has already recommended Kirby’s dismissal. The committee has been investigating the legality of a taxpayer-funded payout to an alleged victim since January.

The 113-page report released by the committee yesterday details Kirby’s harassment. In the report, the $44, 000 settlement was deemed legal.

Kirby claims he was in a consensual relationship after business hours and out of session with one of his legislative aids.

The expulsion recommendation will now go before the House of Representatives where it will need a two-thirds majority vote to kick Kirby out.

    Plaintiffs suing local oil and gas companies for damages caused by the earthquake that struck Prague six years ago have found what could be vital incriminating evidence. Yesterday, a district judge made two key rulings in a pair of lawsuits against New Dominion LLC and Spess Oil Company. First, that the former state seismologist could face a deposition hearing if his current employer approves.
