Once again the Cromwell Administration is engaged in coverup.This time it’s becoming more apparent that panic has set in. Boy, video cameras at the last Council meeting would have provided wonderful evidence of the total idiocy we are subjected to day in day out. And it’s heaped upon us by people who aren’t even real Mashpee!
Enough of that. Back to the story. There’s not enough seaweed to cover the many disbursements to that fascinating Indian maiden Marie Stone, affectionately known as “Tah Tah” or Firebug. Before Tah Tah snuck on to the Council, she had trouble paying her mortgage. We’ve all had that problem. But that was because she didn’t have a job and hadn’t had one in 10 years probably because she was setting cars on fire. But what’s the excuse now? She’s the Tribal Secretary (or whatever) with a huge salary in excess of $ 70k ( and now 2 assistants) she needs money from Housing? Not to mention grabbing more cash from the slush fund operated by her ever so close bud Cedric the Tobey to pay for you know, fines and an impounded car about to be repossessed.
Well, Tah Tah hit the internet when she found out that Carlton Hendricks, Jr. wanted to verify reports of serious irregularities discovered by some Housing Committee members (everybody is scared now). Tah Tah starts trying to scare the tribal members with claims that Hendricks wants their SS#s….wants to steal their identities and on and on. Little too close for comfort and Tah Tah wants no more scrutiny. Course no one believed any of that, and it only confirmed Tah Tah’s sad mental state.Tah Tah is a powder keg. The longer Cedric let’s her stay on the Council, the more danger she represents to everyone. And besides, her mood swings are prone to make her call Tribal Elders weeping and searching for sympathy. No luck there.
According to the HUD Regional Director, there is no regulation that prevents a Council member or any elected official from reviewing Housing disbursements.The only thing standing in the way of a review are those with something to hide….the Cromwell Administration. Cedric and his new Lieutenant Jessie (Tobey) Baird said Hendricks was not looking at anything and that was “it.” Ya Jessie. This is coming from the person who has as much credibility as those pine needles and sea foam that she says we came from. More foolishness visa vi Jessie….she is now performing naming ceremonies. Great. Who made her Medicine Woman ?
But the hidden secrets in Housing are actually well known. Confirmation of the discrimination against certain tribal families is another pitiful fact ….but none the less a serious federal crime.But it was also disclosed and confirmed that former Vice President David Pocknett reviewed housing disbursements and books…
The messy Council meeting was not only dominated by the Housing coverup….there was more scandal. Yvonne Frye Avant got her step daughter a very nice IT contract rumored to be $75k or more. Yvonne gets to move back home, and there we are. She had the nerve to ask,.” What are you trying to say?” What the hell do you think? Yvonne holds the Slimy Award record for all time, Jessie is a close 2nd.
They were holding the meeting in the new tribal building. They tried to move into it last week without an occupancy permit. Right….. Jessie’s lies and handy work ….she never got the permit and was going to just occupy the building that isn’t even finished. The temporary permit comes with a hefty $75k bond. Anyway the Mashpee Fire Department came down and told everyone to get out until they got the permit.
Yah that’s SOVEREIGNTY HUH? Ha! The overpriced boondoggle (that we pay 21% interest on) is parked on land we don’t even own….course there isn’t too much conversation about that old Land in Trust bugga boo….eh Dr. Jo? So different from your gigantic nation eh? A small tribe is a nightmare to manage when the worst ones are running the government like it’s a brothel, shaming us every day with their ignorance and destruction of traditions.
Cedric the Tobey jumped on the elevator with his private swat team. They also substitute as friends. Hendricks asked him, how could he go up to his fancy penthouse while the Mashpee were suffering? Cedric had no comment.
