Democrats put $2M in Native American Bank

The organizers of the 2008 Democratic National Convention have put $2 million into the Native American Bank.

The money comes from $16 million in federal funds that will be used to pay for the convention in Denver. The bank is based in Denver.

The money will be left in an account until it is needed for the convention. Frank LaMere, a member of the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska and the chairman of the Democratic National Convention Native American Coordinating Council, praised the decision.
