No on 94: Schwarzenegger Scalping Tax Dollars?

Steve at ONE CITIZEN SPEAKING has a good synopsis of why we should be voting NO on the expanded gaming compacts. Here's one:

Suspect or manipulated accounting?
With all large sums of money, it is a question of having adequate safeguards and controls in place to prevent under-reporting income. There are those who believe that the state may be cheated by allowing the Indians to collect and distribute the money without strict state guidance.

OP: Look, Pechanga tried to sneak in 2,000 additional class II machines, claiming the "looks like a slot, works liks a slot, but it's not a slot" slot machines weren't included in the limit.

If Pechanga is allowed to kick out their own, with no federal recourse what makes the Governor think that Pechanga will pay up?
Its never good to have blind faith in Pechanga...Look at the 300 disenrolled indians...

Exactly. The Hunter clan trusted that the truth was enough. But when you have those in charge who don't care about truth, or justice or doing what is right, the truth does not set you free.

Vote NO on 94, No to Pechanga

Governor Schwarzenegger is being totally dishonest. He talks about "Billions for California" when, he already spent the "billions". This is to pay the debt and it's not going to be enough. Also, why should the Pechanga tribe get 3 times what the state gets? They hurt their tribe, instead of helping them. They helped a few and hurt many. This tribe does not deserve our vote! My wife and kid are voting NO on 94. Pechanga, you deserve scorn not Billions.
And don't try to throw that "poor Indian" crap at us anymore, you aren't poor, You are now rich, making money off the backs of the members you kicked out. you've made other Indians poor.
No Billions for Pechanga
