Farley was the Representative for District 1 in the Oklahoma House of Representatives. House District 1 encompasses all but the far northwestern corner of McCurtain County (the only county in the district), located in the southeastern corner of the state. Farley ran unopposed in the 2010 primary and once again faced Bailey for the District 1 seat.
Farley upset the incumbent in a District where 81 percent of the residents are registered Democrats.
Even more shocking was his political financing – Farley raised a grand total of only $170 and spent only $70 on a single newspaper adjunct Farley died on July 4, 2011 from a pulmonary aneurysm at a Paris, Texas hospital.
He was 57 years old.
