Pechanga Chairman Mark Macarro Protecting Little Brother John from Attacks Within

Sources inside Pechanga are letting word out that Pechanga Chairman Mark Macarro, well known for eliminating 25% of Native American people from his tribe via TRIBAL Disenrollment is protecting his little brother John Macarro, and his $300,000+ salary.  He gets paid for being an attorney, yet hasn't passed the Califonia Bar according to sources.
Pechanga Chairman Mark Macarro

Here's how it was explained, based on what's happened at meetings..

The Basquez family went after John Macarro for trying to remove Raymond Jr. from the culture dept. They got a petition last summer to have John removed because he doesn't have his license to practice law. He admits that he's too stupid to pass the Ca. bar.
He is paid over $350,000 a year plus carte blanc credit card use to travel all over the world 1st class and take his family, all at the tribes expense.

The Macarros caught wind of the petition last summer and canceled the tribes monthly meeting to avoid problems.  So the Basquez clan waited for the next meeting to present their petition. They needed 20 signitures for it to be legal. They had 51 sigs. The Macarros told the tribe at the meeting that it was not a justified petition. But it really was. They're so corrupt and controlling. 

The Basquez said they'll be back with another petition. 

While we are amused at the infighting at Pechanga, it makes us wonder why the tribal citizens haven't asked some questions, such as:

WHY does John Macarro make so much money?
Why does he have such a large expense account?
Why does Mark Macarro say petitions with enough signatures are invalid?
What has John Macarro accomplished during his tenure?
Why hasn't John Macarro passed the bar?

I don't like to think to much about those boneheads. It just pisses me off. This is just more proof of the corruption that has taken over our tribe. I wish the remaining members could grow a pair and organize, or at least find a worthy opponent to run against Marcy.

Let me get this straight? Under Marks ruler ship, members have decreased. Per capita has decreased. But, no one asks where the money has gone? I guess it's obvious where it's gone.

Pechanga Resort ans Casino's employees are taking their share before the tribe sees any revenue. It was all detailed in the McKinney report. The NIGC (National Indian Gatekeepers of Corruption) know this yet do nothing about it.

Dear Reader: The disgruntled disenrollees continue trying to smear Pechanga and its people, using half-truths, false information, and factoids while speaking from ignorance of how things go at Pechanga. Thus, the disenrollees make themselves look foolish, if anybody pays attention to them.

Tribal Chair Mark Macarro did not and cannot disenroll anybody. Decades ago, the Pechanga people delegated this authority to a Pechanga Enrollment Committee for it to determine membership.

As for the petition, it went through two processes within the tribal government, and emerged as dismissed. End of story for the petition.

As for the rest of the tripe in this blog attacking Pechanga, I decline to comment at this time.

Meanwhile, to the disenrollees: Get a life.
