This is not even news worthy and his opponent needs to not be such a drama queen to try to win this election. He should be ashamed of himself and it really makes him (the one who is complaining) look like a complete idiot.

Am I the only one who was disappointed that it wasn't porn? He's hot!

Give the guy a chance! At least he wasn't flaunting himself doing drugs. That's more than a lot of college students of today can say.
leave the guy alone

This reminds me of the old saying,
"everyones normal until you really get to know them".

I think this falls into that category.

I really dont see any problem with whats posted. Just a bunch of crazy kids doin goofy stuff. I was in college once and ill be the first to tell you I was no honor student. We all live and learn. Its part of growing up.

You know everyone does things in their past to have fun. I dont see anything wrong with the videos. I live in Tahlequah and went to school with Hamby, he was a stand up guy then and he still is. He is not selfish or egotistical like a few of his oppenents. If he did not break any of the laws he hopes to help enforce WHO CARES! Seeing someone who can cut back and enjoy life without being drunk, stoned or ignorant makes him even better. I know when I was 18-20 I had no idea what it would take to become an adult and now at 26 I have grown up, so has Hamby, but if his opponets are nitpicking this part his past they may need to do the growing up first.

He would have my vote if i lived there. It would be great to break up the inner circle of good ol boys in that area!

Who cares?! He didn't do anything illegal or harmful, unless having a good time in college is a crime. Please find something of value to report on.

Really a crying shame to see people get put down for laughing and having a good time and harming NOBODY. Personally, I thought the videos was a riot.

only a stiff neck would be opposed to this guy. he was in college making somthing of him self, so does that not mean he's not entitled to have any fun.

Ha, as if Clay Mahaney should be the one to talk. He needs to look at his own family and if what went on there was exposed....but of course with the good ol boy system many people in the town of Tahlequah will cover things up.

Thanks goodness for someone like Steve Hamby who is willing to step up and change that system.

Yeah, I wish the police chief where I am from was this hot. I would be calling all of the time requesting back up or something.

I agree with Steve. It was back in college and he was having a good time with his friends. This does not conclude that he is uncapable of being the chief of police.

"...nothing illegal, no profanity, no laws were broken."

No problem. Watch his opponent post something silly just for some name recognition now.
