CHUKCHANSI CORRUPTION II: Civil Rights Abuser REGGIE LEWIS Responds to Fresno Bee Editorial
Chutzpah on display from Hall of Shame Member Reggie Lewis responds to
I am writing in response to your April 3 editorial, "Greed could bring the demise of Chukchansi."
According to Buddha, "three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth." The reality is that the Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians has existed as a cohesive unit for generations; the truth will eventually come out and this dispute will be properly resolved.
The Fresno Bee is right to say greed can drive people to do appalling things, but fails its readership when it does not distinguish between the parties to the dispute. Like the rightful mother in the story of King Solomon, one party is doing everything it can to gather the other and submit to the Bureau of Indian Affairs' binding dispute resolution process. We are hopeful the other group will agree to this process rather than see the reputation of our tribe continue to be tarnished and risk further division.
As The Fresno Bee rightly points out, all parties need to put the best interests of the tribe first. Only then will this dispute be rightly resolved.

Reggie fails to mention the harm he has helped cause to HUNDREDS of Chukchansi citizens. This is a corrupt enterprise through and through. Lewis has been hoisted on his OWN PETARD. Read more here: http://www.fresnobee.com/2013/04/07/3245184/chukchansi-responds.html#storylink=misearch#storylink=cpy
