It did not take Gov. Kevin Stitt long to become a politician. He wants to spend the money belonging to the descendants of the Trail of Tears.

His politician instincts are telling him he can spend their money better than they can.

He may find himself one and done, and the good Oklahomans will be singing the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans song, “Happy Trails to You, Gov. Stitt.”
