I now live in Texas.
This man was my US HOUSE Rep while I lived in Oklahoma.
He represents the area around Tulsa.
I point out this article from my home town paper with a significant degree of extreme sadness.....
I do hope he gets the help he deserves.
When I lived in his district during the 2004 campaign, I distinctly remember this issue coming up. I also remember him tarnishing his opponent as a "mean person" - "a jackass" - and the constant refrain of how dare his opponent bring up this youthful indiscretion.
Well, Mr. Sullivan, THIS IS WHY THESE INDISCRETIONS MUST BE BROUGHT UP.
Anyone with a small amount of training could look at some of your behavior and note that you may very well have an alcohol or drug problem.
Now, unfortunately, that has been confirmed. And the city of Tulsa will be without representation for the whole time you are "on a leave of absence".
Thank you very much.
How many of you are sick and tired of all the "family values" and Jesus talk from people like this. We all have issues and problems, and I hope he gets help --- but he was the first one to pile on for years about how the country was going to hell because it had lost its "family values"
May God have mercy on us all.
