What's the matter, McCain, wrong Indian Tribe??
So what?? What is so interesting about this??
As we have documented before, in the article, "Indians, Lobbyists and Arizona Politics...OH MY!", McCain is BIG on Indian Casinos, that is when it's the same Indians filling his campaign coffers.
McCain's history with the Indian Tribes has been an obvious 'follow the money' endeavor, as shown before, " McCain was betting at a casino he oversaw as a member of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, and he was doing so with the lobbyist who represents that casino."
Read on from the headline:
But, then, the Indians have a long history of believing the WRONG politicians!
U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is pushing a federal measure that would stop American Indian tribes from building new casinos outside their historical reservation lands.
A number of tribes in California and New York and the Tohono O'odham Nation in Arizona have plans for new casinos that are not on their reservations. The McCain bill would codify a Bush administration policy against such operations, according to Empire State News.
It's not clear whether the bill would impact the planned O'odham casino on unincorporated land between Glendale and Peoria. A 1986 federal law gives the O'odham Nation the right to buy county land in the Phoenix area to replace some land lost as a result of construction of a dam. McCain sponsored that bill.
However, he opposes the O'odham casino near Westgate City Center and University of Phoenix Stadium.[snip]
Susan Bradford has a good article about McCain and Indians, including this quote:
McCain has said, “There have been times when I put my personal ambitions before the public interest.” Probably more times than he or anyone else could imagine.
AND still losing!
