Just received the following information regarding the impeachment of George Tiger.
Either click or copy & paste to make comments.
On other related topics, the threads have become quite long, so VOC is opening up this one for additional comments.
1st of all, lets give thanks to the Tulsa World & their investigation on our Chief’s corruption and his use of illegal means.
We realize our tribal paper and all its media will never acknowledge any negative things about our elected officials. We always get such news from outside sources. There is more about George than the Kialegee deals, and it will be flushed out.
At the Council’s emergency meeting, there were 13 members present with 12 voting (Speaker votes only on tied voting). Absent were Shirlene Ade, Johnnie Green and 2nd Speaker Robert Hufft. I’m sure they phoned in their excuses for their absences.
ALL 12 VOTED UNANIMOUS ON BOTH THE ITEMS, THE NCA ON ASKING GEORGE TO RESIGN AND THE NCR TO VOTE NO CONFIDENCE. Thank you to all 12 of them.
By now, all other outside news sources have picked up on this mess and will be printing & broadcasting what they now know.
There are now IMPEACHMENT PETITIONS hatching and that will happen. I’m certain the petitioners will need assistance in getting the signatures so please be ready to do petitions. Let’s let George that more of us are not in his pocket nor on his side.
All right, folks. Remember that big past controversy when Ole George and Roger Barnett fought OUR tribe with their shady methods trying their best to assist Kialegee so they could build their casino in Broken Arrow. George will say he fought them. Don’t believe him. He could NOT bring himself to simply say NO, YOU CANNOT BUILD A CASINO ON OUR LANDS, AND AS MUSCOGEE CREEKS, WE WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO BUILD A CASINO ON OUR LANDS. What he seems to have told the Kialegees is OK, I will do what I can to let you build your casino as long as you pay me thousands of dollars UNDER THE TABLE, because I know how to get it done.

New Topic per request by Grayhead:
This piece of crap was published in the latest edition of the MCN. It is supposed to be informational- meaning supply answers. Do you see any answers?
Okmulgee, Okla.—We the National Council in majority make this statement. We have taken an oath to protect the assets of the Nation.
Also, the Nation has opted for a policy of accountability and transparency.
Throughout this Nation, citizens have questioned the expenditure of tribal funds in addition to a situation involving the previous second chief. We are all are of the penalty of unauthorized expenditures.
To determine if any tribal funds have been misappropriated or misused, it is necessary to perform a forensic audit and the National Council authorized the audit in July of 2014 and such review continues until the present date.
The purpose of the forensic audit is to gather evidence to ascertain the true fact concerning an issue and thoroughly review the record of the Nation as opposed to an annual audit for compliance of required procedures and lawful expenditures, at random selection of files.
The auditors have faced obstacles to prevent collecting pertinent documentation.
But, there is an avenue to complete this task and we will utilize those means.
In closing, we the National Council are allowing our legislative body to be audited as part of the forensic audit, as we have nothing to hide.
The Nation, up to this time has not conducted a forensic audit on the expenditure of tribal funds and all documents relating to expenditures.
