It looks like another Oklahoman will have the opportunity to be fired by President Trump!
Earlier this week, President Trump’s reelection campaign announced it promoted Stephanie Alexander, a political consultant with Oklahoma roots, as its new Chief of Staff. Her job duties will include lying, cheating and probably doing whatever else it takes to reelect her orange idol as president.
Here are details via The Hill:
President Trump’s reelection campaign on Tuesday promoted Bill Stepien to deputy campaign manager, making the longtime Republican political adviser a top aide to campaign manager Brad Parscale.
The campaign has also promoted Stephanie Alexander, a regional director for the campaign, to chief of staff.
“Bill Stepien and Stephanie Alexander bring decades of experience in political campaigns and also relentless dedication to President Trump and all that he aims to accomplish for the American people,” Parscale said in a statement.
That’s pretty cool. As we’ve pointed out in the past, the Oklahoma GOP leadership is, for the most part, a cesspool of unethical, sanctimonious, maniacal hypocrites who value authority, money and sticking it to their incompetent adversaries on the left — over logic, reason and just about everything else — so it makes sense that Trump would look within their ranks to fill key positions on his campaign and staff.
As an added bonus, Stephanie also carries some political baggage, which probably helped her get the job:
Stephanie Alexander, the newly promoted chief of staff for Donald Trump's presidential campaign was arrested in Oklahoma in 2016 and charged with conspiracy to violate state election laws after police seized her then-boyfriend's phone in a cocaine bust. https://t.co/2GTgp92lQ4

Yeah, remember all that?
Back in 2014, Stephanie’s then-boyfriend – influential Oklahoma lobbyist and politico Chad Alexander – was caught driving around town in his spiffy Mercedes while on a cocaine and pill bender. After the arrest, Oklahoma County DA David Prater – ever the opportunist – seized Chad’s notebook and cell phone, and claimed that he found some sort of the conspiracy between Alexander and State School Superintendent Joy Hofmeister. Then, just days before the 2016 election, Stephanie, Joy and a few other politico sellouts were indicted on felony charges.
The Frontier has all the details about that strange saga, but long story short, the charges didn’t stick and were eventually dropped – something that had to impress the folks at Mar-A-Lago.
Anyway, we’d like to congratulate Stephanie on the big promotion. We wish her the best of luck and sincerely hope she does a terrible job. Otherwise, it may be another long four years.
