It looks like someone got their chair pulled out from underneath them!

Last night, GOP voters in south-central Oklahoma played a little prank on our old pal State Senator Paul Scott – the 15th ranked Derplahoman of the 2010s – by voting him out of office.

Here are details via The Duncan Banner:

After months of campaigning, the runoff for the State Sen. Dist. 43 Republican race is over as Jessica Garvin defeated incumbent Sen. Paul Scott with 51.56% of the vote.

Garvin started the night a little behind as early voting came in, but numbers from Stephens County started to roll in and other counties helped to give her first lead of the night…

Garvin, after spending the night with close family and friends and after hearing the final results, said she felt gratified with the results declaring her the winner of the Republican nomination.

As an Internet publisher who’s always in search of good, clickable material to write about our dumb politicians, this news is bittersweet. Sure, Paul Scott is an immature right-wing nutjob and the less of those we have in office the better, but he’s also been a master at generating content for us over the past couple of years!

Here’s a look back at some of his greatest hits…

It all got started back in 2017 when Scott – as a newly elected Senator – threatened to remove Thunder taxpayer subsidies over Anthem protests, and then called us stupid after the local newspaper asked him about it. Give Scott credit – he was ahead of the times on that pandering issue.

In 2018, Scott targeted the societal pariah’s known as “low-income pregnant women” with draconian legislation. He also got in trouble on Facebook for making fun of an upset constituent’s spouse and sharing a Bill Clinton meme that made light of the sexual assault allegations.

Then, just last year, we broke the story that Paul Scott was forced to apologize to the State Senate for his “unprofessional behavior” on the chamber floor after he pulled a juvenile prank on State Senator Carri Hicks and didn’t fess up to it. Remember that? He removed a wheel from her chair in the Senate chambers on the first day of the new session, causing her to fall out of the chair and to the ground when she tried to take a seat.

Here’s the letter:

Yeah, you’re definitely not going to act in that manner again on the Senate floor. Unless, of course, he somehow weasels his way back into the Senate.

Anyway, I guess in a strange way we’re going to miss Senator Scott. We wish him the best of luck and hope he knows that even though he’s no longer going to be an elected official, he can still do and say stupid things for us to write about.

  1. Well! Beaten by a GIRL!! Guess she took the wheels OFF him!


    1. He’s a jerk. He also secured VA contracts for his business while on the appropriations board at the VA? How does that happen?


  2. True story, I called this idiot out on Facebook after he was first covered here on his anti-OKC Thunder comments. He then sent me a private message talking about how he wanted to meet me at the capital. I laughed hysterically as I deleted his comment.


    1. At the Capital or behind the Capital?


  3. He apologized to the chair of the Republican caucus. Never did hear that he apologized to Sen. Hicks for trying to embarrass and possibly injure her. Come on, Teresa, tell us one last time for old-time’s sake what a wonderful and fine man he is. Good riddance.


  4. Not to worry, Patrick. There are sure to always be plenty of satire-worthy Derplahomans still in our politics to last for several lifetimes.

    We’ll always have Jim Inhofe too. He’s not welcome anywhere in the afterlife, so we’re stuck with him forever.


    1. I’m hoping against hope that Abby Broyles kicks his ass, but that will rely on rural Oklahoma having enough of his stupid ass.


  5. His campaign was pretty dirty, looks like he might have had help from Terry Neese. Evidently the website against his opponent
    http://truthaboutgarvin.com/ wasn’t enough to send voters his way.

    I’m sure this will not be the last Oklahoma voters will see of him, as he needs another term to qualify for the state retirement.

    Perhaps Stitt will put him into a policy role, or as an unqualified Interim Agency head as more of his “team of experts” bail from the sinking/stinking SS Stitt.


  6. So which Oklahoma company will now hire him as a lobbyist?


    1. He’s already got the sweet gig with the veteran mobile x-ray …


      1. Yes indeed Jan. Paul Scott was on the appropriations committee for the VA then fanagled a contract for mobile x-ray services from them???? How does that happen Former Senator Paul Scott? I asked him the same question a while back. We reap what we sow.


        1. Not Former Sen. Paul Scott just yet — only a lame dork.


  7. Don’t forget about the incident with the Newcastle police officer and the speeding ticket. Just another example of people thinking they are better than everyone else. His pride in thinking this run-off was a waste of taxpayer’s money and that he would just have a shoo-in victory says a lot about his true character.


  8. He would make a fine HOA manager. He has enough Karen points to be qualified.


  9. I was way ahead of my time on this one. A wonderful, well qualified small businesswoman from Goldsby, owner of an earned master’s degree, great husband and kids, ran against Senator Scott in 2016 when he was just plain human Paul Scott. i worked in her campaign, held a Norman fundraiser for her, got support from famous names like Boren, Switzer, Hal Smith and many others, plus real checks, and watched her get wiped out by the phony Paul with all that Jesus stuff, family stuff, education stuff, charity stuff, etc stuff. I had hoped she would run again but her business was growing and the Democrat numbers in SD43 are so daunting.

    Anyway, fast forward four years. I don’t know a thing about Jessica Garvin but I do know even more about the soon to depart Scott and his one term in the senate was even worse than a former senator from 43, by the name of Martin, which I didn’t think was possible. But it was. Paul embodied all the worst traits in a ‘senator’ – arrogant, self serving, pious and worst of all greedy. I never thought the voters out west would remotely figure this out in time but Paul helped them a lot by revealing so much about himself…all bad.
