Chippewa Cree Tribe bars ousted leader from running again

Filed Under: Politics
More on: chippewa cree, elections, montana
     

The Chippewa Cree Tribe of Montana won't let former chairman Ken Blatt St. Marks try to regain his old job.

St. Marks filed as a candidate in a special election for the chairman's post. But since he was removed from office for "neglect of duty and gross misconduct" in March, he won't be allowed to run again.

“They’re running scared, that’s what it’s about,” St. Marks told The Havre Daily News in response. “This council does not want me there, because I’m there looking, and people are going to do things right.”

St. Marks said he was removed from office because he he has encouraged federal agencies to investigate corruption on the reservation. Five people have been indicted in connection with theft of tribal funds.
