In a shameful act, the Democrats from Riverside County gladly accept money from a tribe that practices APARTHEID on their reservation, is looking to steal water rights from reservation allottees and a tribe that has lied to Congress.
Howard Katz accepted $10,000 to turn a blind eye to Pechanga's atrocities.

Republicans are just as bad, quit being so one-sided.
Native American Republican Super PAC formed in California
Posted by Cicero on July 16, 2012
According to the latest FEC filings, a new political action committee has been formed in Sacramento named the Native American Republican Super PAC.
As the name clearly indicates, the focus of the group will be on advancing Native American interests through conservative candidates and initiatives.
When many Californians think of Tribes in California, they think of the 64 casinos currently operating throughout the state. Although for many Tribes this has been a lucrative source of financial support, the concept of gambling and casinos is in stark contrast to the conservative values of many Republicans.
But as Kilma Lattin, one of the founders of the Native American Republican Super PAC described, beyond Indian gaming, Tribes and Republicans do share a lot of common ground. Both are strong supporters of our military – Native Americans have the highest per capita enlistment rate of any minority group going back even before the Revolutionary War. Both are also staunch advocates of self-determination and preserving the traditions of the past for future generations.
Lattin, a member of the Pala Band of Mission Indians in northeast San Diego County and former member of the Tribal Council, also stated, “Republicans have the right ideas to spur growth in the economy, and Tribes should be paying attention because a strong U.S. economy will give Americans the discretionary income necessary to visit Tribal enterprises.”
Lattin, who recently graduated at the top of his class with an MBA from USC and is a former U.S. Army Aviation Officer continued, “If the U.S. economy is doing well, then Tribal economies are doing well also. Democrats continue to ‘double down’ on Keynesian Economic Theories, mainly federal spending. This recycling of tax dollars does nothing to promote the generation of new dollars. Continued federal spending and ‘public works projects’ along with increased healthcare costs on businesses, and the possibility of new taxes on top earners do not promote a safe environment for businesses to invest.”
The Native American Republican Super PAC notes that over the last decade Tribes in California have progressed to be some of the most influential groups in politics today, but much of that influence has gone toward a wide variety of candidates to further the specific interests of the Tribe. This super PAC is unique because of its blend of a conservative agenda with the relatively new-found influence of Indian Tribes.
The Native American Republican Super PAC has said it is looking to hit the ground running and expects to be involved substantially in the election this November. Lattin and other leaders of the Native American Republican Super PAC are currently soliciting contributions from the 110 Tribes throughout the state.
It appears upon further study that this group has no interest in the civil rights of the disenrolled. In fact Pala and other tribes are members of this pact. Tell me that this does not look like pandering to the congressional republican membership.
Find me any articles that are worth posting and I will post them.
A 15 month old article is fine, but something current, like this one is more appropriate.
I also sent tweets to the Good News Foundation on holding their awards banquet at a reservation that has an Apartheid policy.
Lattin is only in it for the money so he can use it any way he wants without checks and balances, he is using the Republican platform to gain notoriety. He offered money to voters in Pala to vote him in as Vice Chairman recently and he is running again. He is under Robert's control, this way Robert gets support from either side when he needs it. It is like he is covering all angles to keep his power, he does not really care about the actual agendas of either party, he just cares about himself. That is why Teresa Nieto donated $50,000.00 to the Republican campaign, probably not her own money, but it made Kilma happy and kept his mouth shut. There is always an ulterior motive with these guys, it comes out about 6 months down the line.
Come on OP you know its true. Both sides accept money from the tribes.
I just want to mention, and this has nothing to do with the above article, that the "Riverside Press Enterprise" was sold to the "Orange County Register". Maybe they won't be so much in Pechangas pockets. One can only hope.
The Democrats are supposed to be the GOOD guys. They have Andrew Masiel as the leader of their Native American caucus.
