OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The filing period begins Monday for an Oklahoma House seat that opened up following the resignation of state Rep. Dan Kirby.

The filing period runs until Wednesday in the House District 75 contest. The winner replaces Kirby, a Republican from Tulsa who resigned after a House committee recommended he be expelled following an investigation into sexual harassment claims.

The special primary election is set for May 9 and a special general election will be held July 11. If no primary is needed, the general election will be May 9.

Kirby has admitted he used poor judgment but denied harassing legislative aides.
