More scoop on the Mike Hunter divorce, affair and resignation…

Earlier this morning, I woke up to an email from an Ogle Mole letting me know that Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter had recently filed for divorce. The email included Hunter’s divorce petition that’s still not on OSCN.

I made some calls around the Ogle Mole Network to get a scoop and quickly hammered out an article so I could, once again, brag that The Lost Ogle – a small publication with only one full-time employee and a few freelance contractors – scooped the entire Oklahoma City media on a big political scandal.

Then, just minutes after that story dropped, Mike Hunter made a bombshell announcement that took everyone else in the media off guard. He was resigning because of “personal matters” that may become public!

As we now know, that personal matter had to do with his divorce and an alleged affair.

Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter files for divorce…

We have learned via the Ogle Mole Network that Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 40 years, Cheryl Hunter.

(Update: Minutes after our story published, Mike Hunter announced his resignation. Here’s an update on everything.)

Although it’s still not available on OSCN, we acquired a copy of the divorce petition he filed on 5/21/21.

In the document, he claims “that a state of complete and irreconcilable incompatibility has arisen” and that it’s “destroyed the legitimate aims of the marriage.”

Pres. Biden to Pay Respects at the Tulsa Race Massacre’s 100th Anniversary

Even though our government still pretends that the Trail of Tears never happened—out of sight, out of mind, I guess—at least President Joe Biden is duly recognizing that the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre occurred and will be here in Oklahoma on Tuesday, June 1st, to mark this important historical event.

Commemorating the 100-year anniversary of one of Oklahoma’s infamous race-related evils, Biden will be in Tulsa to solemnly remember the time a vicious mob of angry white people destroyed a burgeoning part of Tulsa because, you know, racism.
