I mean, who isn’t?” But don’t tell that to Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., who can’t seem to get past the remarkableness of Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren’s Cherokee heritage.

Gazette staff
Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Muskogee, really hates government waste. Each year, he compiles a report showcasing government spending he deems ridiculous. Though he still has the rest of the year to drum up his 2014 report, he’s not wasting any time. This time, he’s after the National Technical Information Service (NTIS).
