Sometimes Votes Can't Be Bought

 Chip Carter Spent about $60 per vote, and it wasn’t enough! It appears that the voters just wanted someone to knock on their door and hear their concerns. Cyndi Munson did a lot of that.

Oklahoma Cop Calls For Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform

Police officer, Stephen Mills has dedicated his life and career to be an Oklahoma peace officer.
