Dammit, Oklahoma City. Why is it that every time we teeter on the edge of Big League City status, something happens to nullify the progress we have made?

You might not see eye to eye with Tim Murray, the Republican candidate for Oklahoma’s 3rd District, but you don’t have to worry about him owning or using a robot look-alike. According to a press release from Timothy Ray Murray, “Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike.”

CFN

Gazette staff
Hobby Lobby’s self-righteous stance on a host of issues ranging from healthcare to same-sex marriage makes it so much fun to highlight the deceptive practices of this Oklahoma City-based company.
