Navajos elect tribe’s vice president to top post

By Felicia Fonseca
Flagstaff, Arizona (AP)

Navajos have chosen tribal Vice President Ben Shelly as their next leader, despite both him and his running mate facing criminal charges in a probe of tribal slush funds.

Ben Shelly defeated New Mexico Sen. Lynda Lovejoy in the November 2nd election, becoming the first vice president elected to the tribal presidency and dashing Lovejoy’s hopes of becoming the tribe’s first female president. Shelly had 33,422 votes to Lovejoy’s 29,980 votes with just one precinct outstanding.
