Anna (God is on my team) Falling, one-time city councilor and current Republican candidate for Tulsa mayor, has kicked off her campaign by arguing against science.
It's true, Sooner fans. In defiance of reason, science and sound political judgment, Falling has come out in support of a "creationism" display at the Tulsa Zoo.
