Secret talks sunk recognition for Lumbee

Pembroke, North Carolina (AP)

A former lawyer for the Lumbee Indians says tribal leaders secretly met with gambling leaders for two years, even after a vote to keep gambling out of a recognition bill for the tribe.

The Fayetteville Observer reports that Arlinda Locklear wrote an open letter to the tribe, saying the negotiations led by former Tribal Chairman Jimmy Goins and his Tribal Administrator Leon Jacobs led to a contract with gambling consultant Lewin International in 2009.

Heck yeah

Heck yeah those secreat meetings and contact with Lewin hurt us and it hurt us bad and for anyone that says it did not like Prunell Swett and others in the Tribal office that supported the contract they are lying and have some serious head up the butt disease.
