The following sentence is taken from Senator Harry Coates senatorial website.
Sen. Coates and Betty, his wife of 41 years, are members of the First Baptist Church of Seminole. They have four children Jeremy, Heather, Eddie and Brandon.
This week The Oklahoman released a story tying Senator Harry Coates (R-Seminole), pictured right, with lobbyist Haley Atwood.
The Oklahoman revealed this week that Atwood, 29, and Sen. Harry Coates, 60, were having an extramarital affair at a time they were helping Rite of Passage win the contract.
Were this story about another politician who can’t keep his pants zipped, it would be tragic enough–yet none of our business. But there’s more. It seems a contract has been awarded to the Ada Youth Academy Authority to build a high security multi-bed juvenile facility, complete with a 10 million dollar year operating budget, to a company represented by Haley. The story is tragic on many levels.
We could go on and on. What does Senator Coates say about all of this?
He welcomes the investigation and is confident there was no wrongdoing.
Bravo Senator! There really is no fool like an old fool!
