Arkana has told Shovel Ready Ceddie to do some serious push back. So he did an election dissertation, written by his White PR firm, on the tribal Facebook page (established by his 21 year old protege, Enrollment Chairman, election day gadfly and campaign manager to the 5 incumbent Woebegone Women candidates, Brian Weeden). This was some serious spinning to make us believe he’s worried about low voter turn out. There’s also a condescending lecture about the role of elections in a “Democracy”…..ain’t that White of them.
He goes to great lengths saying the electronic voting machines are credible. But if members want to vote the old fashioned way, why not give them what they want? Why is he so frightened of an open process that will satisfy tribal members? Because he will not get the result he wants.
Course that’s democracy right? Doing what the tribal members want.None of that here.
The more important question is why are the immediate relatives of of 3 candidates ( including his wife ) still on the election committee?
Again, his protege Brian Weeden is the chair of enrollment,which establishes the voter list in
collaboration with Election Chair Kimmie Frye, (sister of candidate Cheryl Frye Cromwell and first cousin to candidate Yvonne Frye Avant). Melissa Hill (sister to candidate Danielle Hill) is also a member of the committee. Lots of collaboration on addresses, phone banking, and shenanigans going on that Tribal Core challengers cannot overcome or participate in.
For God sakes ! Talk about rigged! They have access to the membership rolls ( voter list of those eligible to vote over 18), can add whoever they want to it and they present that list as the voter check off for election day. We have no election laws, so we have no idea what they are promising these new so called members…no idea whatsoever. It’s election 2009 all over again.
No government tribal or otherwise, runs an election process that is so without credibility. Despite what Brian Weeden says (that tribal law tops the federal law) adults know that federal government still rules us. We are still citizens of the United State aren’t we? Damned right. The Woebegones break tribal law all day long but not state or federal law…ever notice? Disenfranchisement of any kind and voter fraud outlined above is taken very seriously by the Justice Department. You see the power these so called elected officials have over our lives? That’s why federal law places a high penalty on bad elections that put bad people in office.
WHERE IS THE OVERSIGHT? Where are the Elders to keep non members from voting? We have no idea who the hell has been put on the damned roll because of Messy Jessy and her efforts to throw elections by enrolling people who should have never been accepted into the tribe.
The process is so corrupted, it is scary.
Do you ever notice that Shovel Ready Ceddie nor his cohorts ever address the issues we bring to light….They can’t answer cause they’re leading a shell government in our name.
Give us the ballot, let us mark the ballots and count them ourselves in front of everyone. That’s a clean election.
Oh yah His Hokaness? Where’s that LIT Arlinda said would be in place this month? (Crickets)
