OKG:  Loveless Resigns Effective Immediately

It is with deep regret, we announce the resignation of Kyle Loveless effective immediately. The news broke today on multiple outlets. We sincerely hope that someone else will pick up the torch and continue the battle on civil asset forfeiture in Oklahoma.

Our prayers are extended in the hope that this will occur in this situation as well as all the others facing us as a state this year.
