We wrote earlier about the Chukchansi tribe nearing a deal to open the casino. But this tribe still hasn't gotten it's act together.
Our friend Cathy Cory, a terminated Chukchansi member says:
Reopening the casino should be the LEAST of Picayunes worries at this point. How 'bout working on just being a TRIBE?
First things first...our people need to come together, bring ALL Chukchansi people home in order to heal, put a totally new tribal council in place, and implement a forensic audit to determine just which tribal "leaders" are responsible for the theft of $50 million from the tribe.
Provide consequences for that behavior--NOT reward them by leaving them in power to start the same destructive behaviors all over again with impunity...
