  • Attorney: Tribal judge refuses to block election

    Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin (AP)

    A tribal judge refused to halt the October election on a northern Wisconsin reservation racked with allegations of political corruption among existing leaders, an attorney said.

    The lawsuit sought to block the general election Oct. 2 on the Lac du Flambeau Chippewa Reservation on grounds that five candidates were wrongly removed from the ballot to silence critics of the existing government, said Glenn Reynolds, an attorney for the five.
