APARTHEID Tribe Hires Gary Condit's Firm to Lobby his Son in Law Adam Gray (D)
The LATIMES reports that The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, whose chairman Mark Macarro's wife, Holly, is a Native American adviser to Hillary Clinton, has hired former Rep. Gary Condit's firm to lobby the state Legislature at a time when the legislative panel overseeing gambling issues is chaired by Condit’s son-in-law.
Condit is a founder of BBC Public Affairs, which was hired Aug. 2 by the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians in Temecula to lobby in Sacramento on “utility/energy” issues. The hire came just before Condit's son-in-law, Assemblyman Adam Gray (D-Merced), proposed changes to his bill legalizing Internet poker in California in a way that specifically addressed concerns by Pechanga.
A Pechanga spokesman said there is no relationship between the hiring of BBC and the tribe’s efforts to get Gray to change his bill.
On July 29, Pechanga announced the formation of the first tribally owned and operated wholesale electric utility located in the state of California.
BBC is “monitoring utilities issues for us and have nothing to do with I-poker,” said Jacob Mejia, a representative of Pechanga. OP: Like THEFT OF WATER from ALLOTTEES JACOB??
