Interesting PR piece. The largest slot tournament with a payout of $100K total. Yet not getting news, is the fact that Pechanga has pulled off one of the largest thefts in California's Indian Gaming Country: http://www.originalpechanga.com/2011/09/follow-money-per-capita-theft-by-tribal.html Over $350 MILLION has been stolen by the tribe, from rightful members who have had their tribal citizenship stripped. That doesn't include what they've kept from rightful members via an unconstitutional moratorium.
The violations of civil and basic human righs is staggering, as a tribe that practices APARTHEID: http://www.originalpechanga.com/2010/09/does-mark-macarros-tribal-council.html is not called out on it by civil rights groups such as the NAACP and ACLU.
I think that the people of CA should make this attempt a failure. Do not stand with civil rights abusers.
