Senator Barbara Boxer, an Inland Empire Resident adds her voice to the Desert Sun's Investigation of the Torrez- Martinez Tribes' misuse of taxpayer funds.
Will she give equal weight to tribe's like Pechanga, which told Congress that they wanted to preserve land to the tune of 700 acres because of its "sacred to the Pechanga people" who then put a golf course on the land and called it a 'zoning change'!
Step up Senator Boxer. INVESTIGATE!
The tribes have had a very difficult time in the past — a lot of difficulty getting the funds they feel they deserve to have,” Boxer said. “Now there's been a settlement decree, and we're trying to put that into law, to make sure the tribes are being treated fairly.
“It would be very sad if the tribes lost the confidence of the public. (But) everybody has to play by the rules.”
What about what the tribes have done the INDIVIDUAL INDIAN, SENATOR?
