And Now It's Officially Worse

Lawyers for the Freedmen have asked Judge Henry Kennedy for an injunction to halt Federal payments to the tribe. These payments make up about 80% of the tribal budget, depending on who you ask. And just remember, especially when it comes time for tribal elections, the disenrollment of the Freedmen was a "war of choice" that Principal Chief Chad Smith led the nation into based on "faulty intelligence." Whatever happens, don't blame the Freedmen; blame the administration that blundered into this mess in the first place.
