Recognized Seminole Nation of Oklahoma Chief Jerry Haney says nearly 30 tribal bank accounts have zero balances.

Haney says he tried to access the funds but wasn't told the accounts were empty. He accuses his political rivals, the Ken Chambers administration, of taking the money and putting it somewhere.

The tribe's casino is shut down pending resolution of a dispute which has put as many as 600 people out of work temporarily.
