Wampanoag members seeking financial information on tribe

Mashpee, Massachusetts (AP) 9-07

Political turmoil continues in the tribe that’s trying to build a billion dollar casino in Middleborough.

More than 100 members of the Mashpee Wampanoag have submitted a petition to the Tribal Council. They’re demanding a meeting to discuss controversies including an IRS investigation into the tribe’s finances.

The Cape Cod Times has reported that two nonprofit corporations run by the tribe are at the center of the probe. Neither has filed required annual financial reports.

One of the nonprofits lists former tribal chairman Glenn Marshall’s address as its own.

Marshall stepped down in August after revelations about his past rape conviction and his lies about his military record.

Tribe members say they want to discuss an independent audit of tribal finances.

They also want to talk about the fate of tribal members whom the council has formally shunned.
