FBI Raids North Fork Rancheria Tribal Government Offices; Which Tribe is NEXT

The North Fork Indian Reservation is under federal investigation for fraud. An investigation some say could cost them their massive casino project.

Agents with the FBI and Department of Interior carried away several boxes of evidence after serving a search warrant. The warrant is sealed but tribal members who saw it say it relates to the casino.

A former tribal chair says agents interviewed her nine months ago asking about financial dealings with Station Casino's, which is the tribe's partner in building the casino. She says the FBI already has internal documents.

Jacquie Davis Van Huss said, "They did have financial documents and from my time on the tribal council I know they're confidential documents."

The Interior Department approved the North Fork casino in September. The tribe still needs approval from Governor Jerry Brown.

We had a story on North Fork Rancheria:   http://www.originalpechanga.com/2011/09/indian-vs-indian-despicable-picayune.html

Did another tribe drop a dime on them?

Hey guys, my "Christmas Wish? (Yes I said... "Christmas!") is watching "Mark Macarro and his Henchmen" being "Measured" for their "Federal Jump Suit!"...The "Feds" sometimes get it "Right!"

Mark was on the board of directors at Borrego?

What I or my brother Mark has regarding accounts is none of your concern. We do not care. If you really want to know, we diverted some from the Hunters, when they were disenrolled. Remember we cam do anything we want. Even the DOJ or the FBI can't do nothing. And That's all I have to say about that!

Article v of General Duty of Officers section 7 states (The treasurer shall have custody of all monies and valuables for the Band and shall deposit band monies valuables in a bank or other depository approved by the Band at a duly noticed meeting)So why does Mark Macarro have a bank account under Pechanga unbrella.

Probably not John, but who knows for sure? But in effect: "Factual!" Especially the part about "Diverting Money from the Hunters when we were Disenrolled."

It's funny how every single corrupt tribal chairman has a brother who is conspiring for him, dealing for him, doing his dirty work, etc.

Example:

Mark and John, Bobby and Ernie, Robert and Andrew. Feel free to add additional names here:___________________

Sometimes, I think we are the crazy ones, when the government stands by and refuses to take action against obvious illegal activity, being masked under tribal sovereignty

United States has tried again and again to terminate American Indians. Termination was ruled illegal...so...bright idea was to rename Termination.

Self Determination; aka sovereignty, IS termination.

"Indian Law' is the weapon of choice to destroy what is left of
Indian Country.

The irony is....All continental United States is still INDIAN COUNTRY.

The greatest tragedy of this dark chapter is that selfish;greedy effers have chosen the dark path to destroy humanity for their pieces of silver.

The ethos of Pechanga is one of greed and avarice at any cost.

Macarro is marketing himself as an activist...how's that for delusion?

Plain and simple, I truly cant wait for the soon day to write to Mark Macarro as he sits in his "Federal Prison Cell". Just to send him his bday cards and Christmas cards as he "Rots" in his cell. Such joy...

Also, our buddy Andrew. Hey buddy, if you haven't noticed, you're being watched. Cover your tracks next time, you recently purchased 3 luxury SUV's from a lot I work at. And on the paper work for proof of purchase, you used a tribal black card, aka(tribal funds)... Idiot!!!

What do you expect, tribal funds are an almost unlimited well of money, and there is almost no oversite. Unless you count the people in charge of the cookie jar, are those responsible for counting the cookies.

I'm VERY interested in your comments and would like to learn more information. I will be discreet, but it is imperative that I receive more information.

Thank you!

Don't make accusations you can't back up. We know the Masiels have a crime family, but wild, unfounded accusations help nobody.

Luiseno said...

It sounds like his accusations were personally witnessed by himself when he says "...you recently purchased 3 luxury SUV's from a lot I work at. And on the paper work for proof of purchase, you used a tribal black card, aka(tribal funds)..."

Now I myself don't know if this was a wrongful act or not. As perhaps the 3 luxury SUV's might be for prize giveaways or something similar.

Anonymous said...

Prize giveaways are only burchase by the casino GM and PDC.

smokeybear said...

If you personally witness this transaction, and it is "True," and you have paperwork to prove that this happened, send it off to the F.B.I. and D.O.J and let them investigate and sort out any wrong doing. It just might give the a "Heads Up" to the "Tomfulary" that is happening at "Pechanga" on a regular basis. The "Nature of the Beast" so to speak.

Even if you give this information to the DOJ and the FBI they may look into this and it could take them years to get any thing done. In the mean time the Tribe suffers. I know because we have been going through this for 3 years since the DOJ first called me in January of 2009 to give us a heads up since they started the investigation. We know that millions of Tribal funds have went to benefit two members, we know that the GM & CFO have spent casino revenue without our Tribes authorization. We handed the DOJ all they needed on a silver platter and here we sit today "its in Wong's hands" LOL they keep saying and he cant comment and is not moving on it. Oh then you know the BIA and IBIA can't make a ruling to save their own sole's. So really the bottom line is it seems that some Tribes get the help they need and other have to sit and wait. So I hope it works out better for other Tribes.
