Coyote Valley Pomo Band Kicked Out Old Thieves Got New Thief in Return

Boy, some tribes really know how to hurt the image of Tribal Gaming in California. Pechanga, Redding, Chukchansi, San Pascual eliminate members, others just steal the money. Is this what is meant by Self Reliance?

The treasurer of the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians has been charged with embezzling from the tribe, the second tribal member to face charges since the tribe was scandalized by the 2006 federal indictments of its entire tribal council.

Tribal Treasurer Sharlyne Elizabeth Burke, 37, was booked and released last week on suspicion of felony grand theft embezzlement of casino funds

I heard a rumor that Jennie Miranda and the Masiel family are trying to keep Gabriel Pico's son out of the tribe. I guess it looks like the Masiels might go after the Pico family. I also heard that Andy Masiel is running for council later this month.

Soon we will have more of the Pechanga tribe out of the tribe than we have in… maybe then the majority will rule!! Sometimes justice comes in the ironies of life.
