The Oklahoma House of Representatives censured a Democrat state representative for allowing a fugitive who allegedly attacked a highway patrol trooper to take refuge in her office.
Rep. Mauree Turner, a state lawmaker in Oklahoma, allegedly hid a fugitive wanted for an investigation surrounding an attack in her office on Feb. 28. Fox News reported that she denied requests from officers to see the fugitive.
Throughout its coverage, the network refers to Turner in the plural form, calling her place of work, “their office.”
Meanwhile, BlazeMedia appeared to ridicule her grammatically incorrect use of pronouns, writing that, she “refers to herself in the plural.”
This alleged attack took place after the passing of House Bill 2177 on Feb. 28, which forbids healthcare professionals from engaging in genital mutilation procedures or hormone treatments for gender-switching purposes on any minors below 18 years of age.
Members of the GOP stressed that the new law aims to safeguard children from permanent, life-altering changes to their bodies, reported KOKH-TV.
“This legislation is about protecting our children from those who would seek to profit from their gender confusion,” explained State Rep. Kevin West (R), who authored the bill. “As a state, we must not be partner to irreversible health practices that permanently change the bodies of our children before they are of an age where they can fully understand the consequences of their decisions.”
State Rep. Jim Olsen, who co-authored the new law, said, “Even one child who undergoes a life-altering procedure and later laments their decision is one too many. I’m proud to stand against these reprehensible actions and proud to protect Oklahoma’s children.”
Rep. J.J. Humphrey (R) reportedly compared getting surgery to affirm the delusion that one is the opposite gender to launching off a building due to a belief of being Superman.
“The very fact you have to request a surgery to change your [gender], Scooby-Doo would call that a clue,” said Humphrey. “And Scooby-Doo would also say, ‘Ruh-roh.’”
Prior to the bill’s passing, a group of so-called ‘LGBT activists’ reportedly engaged in a public meltdown, with one protestor bellowing, “You’re killing children.”
Speaking on Turner’s decision to hide the fugitive who allegedly attacked an officer, Highway Patrol Trooper Eric Foster commented, “When we go up to the representative’s office, we were not allowed in, even from opening the door.”
Videos of the fiasco went viral across social media.

Turner indicated she has no sorrow for her actions, stating, “an apology for loving the people of Oklahoma is something that I cannot do… It’s something that I actively refuse to do.”
The Oklahoma representative was officially censured following an 81-19 House vote on March 7 over her role in allegedly hiding the accused man.
