State Senator Kyle Loveless resigns amidst allegations of campaign finance misconduct

District 45 State Senator Kyle Loveless irrevocably resigned his office Thursday morning amidst allegations of failure to follow proper procedures for reporting campaign donations. 

Loveless, a Republican from Oklahoma City, was first elected in 2012 and re-elected this past November.

Loveless is currently under criminal investigation by Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater with allegations of campaign fund misappropriation and embezzlement. 

In a brief, three-sentence letter to President Pro Tempore Mike Shultz, Lovess said "Mistakes I have made are the responsibility of no one other than myself." Shulz wished Loveless and his family "best wishes moving forward."
