An Oklahoma lawmaker took to the social media app Snapchat this week to vent frustration with demonstrators at the state capitol.
Rep. Tess Teague of Choctaw claimed the demonstrators urging a rate increase on oil and gas production tax were paid and uninformed.
In the video, the 27-year-old Republican used a Snapchat filter showing her wearing cartoon animal ears and speaking in a high-pitched voice.

In a post on Facebook, Teague later called the video a mistake and said it was intended for close friends and colleagues, and not constituents.
