Pit River leaders refuse to sign oath of office
Two leaders of the Pit River Tribe of California are refusing to sign an oath of office that bars them from participating in "any disloyal, subversive or insubordinate conduct or acts," The Redding Record-Searchlight reports.

Chairwoman Jessica Jim and council member Marina Martinez are the only two who won't sign the document, according to administrator Robert Boyce. He claims Jim and Martinez are trying to organize a recall effort, something that the oath of office was designed to prohibit.

Jim has been removed by the council in April but was reinstated later in the month. However, she has been without signing authority since last fall.
