OKLAHOMA CITY -

Sen. Kyle Loveless, R-Oklahoma City, has resigned his seat, effective immediately.

Loveless sent his letter of resignation to Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Schulz, R-Altus, Thursday morning.

Schulz said in a press release:

Today, I received and accepted the resignation of Senator Kyle Loveless, effective immediately. I wish Senator Loveless and his family best wishes moving forward.

District Attorney David Prater told News 9's Justin Dougherty "we are still in the middle of the investigation" into Loveless over possible misappropriation and embezzlement of campaign funds.
