Pechanga's "Whistleblower" Was Fired For Exposing Corruption At The Casino, Including Pechanga Elected Officials?

I'm  working my way through the filings from the court filings of Benedict Cosentino, because, well, the Press Enterprise won't/didn't think to do  it.

Here are some statements from Mr. Cosentino:

In acting as a confidential informant, I risked my personal safety to help prevent theft from the Pechanga Band and to protect the integrity of the Pechanga Casino's gaming activities. I never asked for any payment or reward, and never received any. I was just doing what I thought any decent person was obligated to do.

Pechanga's attorney calls this..... self serving.

Pechanga's decease elder, and PGC commissioner Norman Pico Sr. brought in the DOJ, the CA DOJ and Riverside County District attorney

the  Commission sought the assistance of the United States Department of Justice, the California
Department of Justice and the Riverside Country District Attorney's Office in investigating
criminal corruption at the Pechanga Casino involving vendors, employees, and elected officials of the PECHANGA BAND.   OP:  MONEY on more than one occasion when the Commission met with investigators to discuss the investigation at the Pechanga Casino, Chairman Pico insisted that Defendant Fuller leave the room.  Recusal?  Why?  Were Pechanga tribal family members involved?  YES! See below:

26. After I left work on March 29, 2011, I made three calls to agents at the California
Department of Justice with whom I had worked in my capacity as a confidential informant.
27. Each of those agents told me that if the Commission asked me about my activities as
a confidential informant, I could not reveal any information about open cases because some of
the open cases involved family members of Defendant Fuller.   OP:  That would be MIRANDA family members.  

NO MASIEL BASQUEZ CRIME FAMILY INVOLVED!   How do we know? This:

Tribal member Raymond Basquez and his wife Linda contacted me in or about October 2011, and asked me to meet with Pechanga Tribal Council member, Ken Perez.  OP:  If FELON Basquez's family were involved, he'd be working to protect them, not report them.  And guess who earned the Basquez  ire for standing up against the crime-family manufactured disenrollments? Yes, Stella Fuller's brother, Anthony, the former head of CNIGA

Stella Fuller was protecting her brother and Father from the DOJ investigation.  Shortly after Fuller's dismissal, Pechanga tribal members Anthony, Andrew and Raymond Miranda were disenfranchised from the tribe for theft.

Read the filing linked above, it has words, TRIAD as part of the claims that Pechanga didn't argue against, they didn't dispute any of the charges, simply focused on the sovereignty issue. Defending sovereignty at all costs, prevents legal exposure of tribal members.   Hiding behind sovereignty prevents CRIMINAL EXPOSURE.....

Removing let's say 300 voting, enrolled members out of let's say 1,100 voting members is cause for internal investigation. Then taking their share of votes out of the band kinda cuts a voice wouldn't you think? Internal investigation is just a lead. Mark could legally look straight at the truth and honor our ancestors. The band could see that the U.S. Government could step in and close the casino at anytime? If you were to lose your share today, how would that effect your life?

Can't the disenrolled all get together and hire Gloria Allred to get the word out? That woman would probably do it for just the publicity alone. She claims to be a human rights attorney and she would get tons of publicity.

Mark said "We have a right to determine membership." Correct, the truth is WE ALREADY DETERMINED MEMBERSHIP, and our Ancestors were honored and respected. Now to have a faction led by Macarro et al thinking it's legal and ok to dishonor our Ancestors, determine membership on enrolled members who meet the requirements, take away all their rights and spend their share of everything the band has been allowed to participate in. Pechanga deserves to be honored with truth. Hunter family is Pechanga, no other family is more Pechanga than Paulina and her descendants. Your Ancestors knew the truth and filed oral depositions on Allotted Indians. The reservation and Casino would not be here today if the Ancestors did not record the truth. Honor them NOW!

The B.I.A. and congress said the tribe has a right to determine tribal membership based on tribal law and tribal constitution. This means the tribes can deny membership and disenroll following the criteria of tribal by laws and their constitution. Now this is were tribes like Pechanga , Pala , San Pasqaul and others have broken tribal by laws and constitution just because they are in office disenrolling who they dislike or threatens their political power. Not enrolling others but enrolling their family for votes. So if congress , senate and the B.I.A. make strong statements of tribes rights to disenroll based on tribal laws and constitution then they need to make shore that the disenrolling tribes are following their tribal laws.

I met with the McKinney Group as part of their investigation as well. And met with members of the gaming commission and PDC as well, and yet they did nothing to stop the theft and corruption at the casino.

They are letting the rope strangle as many law breakers as possible. At this rate the whole band may go down to complete the investigations. The band at any moment could honor our Ancestors bring back the clans who belong and move on. The criminals will face the truth always and forever. The question is do want the criminals to have open doors to disrespect our Ancestors who brought us to Pechanga?!

The truth is crystal clear. This is why other bands are stepping up and saying we would never do such things within our own band. The saddest part is this truth is dishonoring our Ancestors who were the targets of the greedy land grabbers when our lands were targeted by settlers. Now we have the greedy land and cash grabbers doing the same things to the heirs of our people and our Ancestors had these issues settled in the creation of the reservation. Honor our people and gives us back our rights. Paulina Hunter is Pechanga and so are her recorded heirs. That's why we are enrolled in the first place. Taking our rights and thinking its ok is not honorable.
