I was doing some research on OPENSECRETS.ORG and did some calculations on what The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians paid the TRIBAL CHAIRMAN's WIFE's LOBBYING firm, IETAN CONSULTING.
From 2010 to 2014, IETAN received $1,220,000 according to their filings. Pechanga now has SPIRIT ROCK, run by Aurene Martin.
Makes one wonder, why so little is now spent by Pechanga to lobby our politicians? When HOLLY, Mark Macarro wife was gettin' paid....she got $20,000 per MONTH, the new lobbyist is getting $2,000 per month.
WILL MARK MACARRO set up a GOFUNDME account to make up the difference? That's a big HIT to one's income.
PECHANGA MEMBERS should be asking, "WHAT DID WE GET for that $1.2 MILLION? It wasn't a water rights bill, because WE beat HOLLY's ass in the halls of congress and got that bill stopped. We didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express, but we did have two FREE nights at the Marriott. I think an itemized accounting of IETAN's spending that got little or no results is in order, don't you, Pechanga members. Maybe during OTHER BUSINESS...
We discussed our trip to CAPITOL HILL, remember?
