Abortion access initiative petition, same-sex marriage protection, Gov. Stitt's son and more

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel about a new initiative petition to allow Oklahomans to vote on protecting abortion access in the state, the U.S. Senate rejecting an amendment to a same-sex marriage protection bill ultimately passed in the chamber and the Department of Justice opening an investigation of the State of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City and the Oklahoma City Police Department over the treatment of people with behavioral disabilities.

The trio also discusses an incident in October involving the son of Gov. Kevin Stitt and the nomination of Kim Teehee as a nonvoting delegate to Congress from the Cherokee Nation.
