  • Anther one for the US Theocratic Party: Joan Farr Heffington (R) [pictured] is running for governor of Kansas with a platform that includes requiring that there be a “Biblical and Constitutional reason” for any new laws and “allow[ing] teaching of Christianity vs. evolution in schools”.

  • Maryland Air National Guard staff sergeant Anthony Graber is the one who had a cop pull a gun on him at a mere traffic top and then had his parents’ home ransacked and his property seized.
