Accused Perjurer Calls Out San Manuel Leader James Ramos on Tax Payments

The battle for the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisor Third District seat officially began Monday following San Manuel Tribal Chairman James Ramos’ announcement that he intended to run against incumbent Neil Derry.
Ramos made the announcement before a group of friends and supporters, according to a written statement released by Ramos.

“Over the past several months, I have received numerous phone calls from leaders in our community asking that I consider running for the Board of Supervisors," Ramos explained through the written statement on why he decided to run.
And after Third District Supervisor Neil Derry was accused of felony perjury and filing campaign documents that failed to report a $5,000 contribution, Ramos said the call for his candidacy gained a sense of urgency, he said.

“After discussing the idea with many leaders who I respect, and with my family, I have decided to announce today that I am a candidate for supervisor,” Ramos said Monday.

On April 26, the Attorney General’s office filed a complaint against Derry accusing him of felony perjury and failing to report a $5,000 contribution from Arnold Stubblefield-Highland Town Shops. Derry is also accused of failing to report Stubblefield as a contributor, which is a misdemeanor.
"The people of San Bernardino County have been let down time and time again," Ramos said. "Public faith in our institutions and elected officials is crucial in our democracy. The people cannot have faith in their government when key government officials are being indicted and being forced to recuse themselves from important duties and votes due to legal problems."

Soon after the announcement, the Derry camp released its own statement.

Painting all Casino Indians with broad brush, Derry apparently says if one Indian doesn't pay his taxes, they all must be cheats.   Well, Mr. Derry, I can tell you that is quite wrong.  Before the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians cheated our family out of $1.3 MILLION each, I can tell you we paid taxes, a LOT of them.

Referring to Ramos as the San Manuel Casino Boss, Derry called for Ramos to release his personal income and property tax records. He challenged the tribal chairman to prove he’s has been paying state or local taxes, citing a Los Angeles Times report that that his tribal chairman predecessor did not.
“Is Mr. Ramos a tax scofflaw too?” Derry wrote.

ON THE NEWS STANDS TODAY, THE LEAD STORY WAS THE CHAIRMAN OF SAN MANUEL WAS SLAMMED BY HIS OPPONENT. I THINK IT WAS THE "SUN." YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT ABOUT BRINGING THE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS, HAPPENING IN INDIAN COUNTRY, TO THE FOREFRONT OF HIS CAMPAIGN AND FIND OUT WHERE HE STANDS ON DISENROLLMENTS, BANISHMENTS, AND ALL THE OTHER DISPICABLE ACTS THAT IS BECOMING COMMONPLACE THOUGHOUT CASINO MEMBERSHIPS. HE BEING "THE TRIBAL LEADER OF SAN MANUEL," CAN HE TELL US WHAT HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS HAVE ACCURED IN THEIR MEMBERSHIP, AND BETTER THAN THAT "WHO IS HE GOING TO SIDE WITH" AT THE "TRIBAL LEADERS CONFERENCE AT PECHANGA JUNE 2&3? IS HE GOING BE THE CORRUPT AND GREEDY CHAIRMAN, AS IS THE "THE CHAIRMAN OF PECHANGA, MARK MACARRO," WHICH WOULD MAKE HIM JUST ANOTHER "CROOKED" POLITICAL HACK IF ELECTED. THE CONFERENCE WILL MAKE OR BREAK HIS CAMPAIG

To the Anonymous 4;34 poster:

This is MY BLOG and I choose the content of it. I'll post what I want to post.

If YOU have something YOU think that's worthy of a post, I'll make the determination.

There is NO information on the proposed protest, which is being spearheaded by the Tosobol family. We are waiting for information.

Did you tweet anyone? Are YOU a member of AIRRO? IF not, WHY not? Have you got YOUR signs ready? How many are YOU bringing, should it come to pass?

Well?

YES, THERE IS A "CORRECTION" ON THE TIME OF 8:00AM, IT HAS BEEN CHANGED TO "4:00PM ON JUNE 2" AT THE PECHANGA CASINO FOR THE PROTEST/RALLY OF THE "TRIBAL LEADERS CONFERENCE." AS STATED ABOVE, OUR PRESENCE WILL BE THERE THROGHOUT THE DAY PREPARING FOR THE CONFERECE WHICH WILL ACTUALLY START AT 3:00PM. THE REASON THAT 4:00PM WAS CHOSEN IS TO MAXIMIZE OUR TURNOUT AND MOST EFFECTIVELY UTILIZE OUR NUMBERS. THIS WILL ALSO ALLOW AN EFFECTIVE TURN OUT OF OUR WORKING BROTHERS WHO WOULD POSSIBLY NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND. IT'S ALOT EASIER TO GET OFF A LITTLE EARLY AND BE ABLE TO ATTEND, THEN TO TRY AND GET THE DAY OFF WITH SHORT NOTICE. WITH THIS BETTER TIME FRAME, ALL "TRIBES" WITH A VESTED INTEREST IN BRINGING TO THE FOREFRONT THE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS,DISENROLLMENTS, BANISHMENTS AND ALL THE OTHER DISPICABLE ACTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN PERPETRATED AGAINST LEGITIMATE "NATIVE AMERICANS" BY THEIR RESPETIVE MEMBERSHIPS BY IGNORING THEIR CONSTITUTIONS AND BY LAWS. ALL TRIBES ARE INVITED TO COME OUT AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR WHAT IS RIGHT, AND CONTEMPT FOR THE CORRUPT AND GREEDY TRIBAL LEADERS.
