Yup. No Corruption Here!

FSIN elections

"Among the winners was a familiar name in Saskatchewan First Nations politics: Dutch Lerat. He was elected third vice-chief.

Lerat was once the chief executive officer of a corporation known as the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority, which oversees a number of First Nations run casinos in the province.

Lerat was fired after a scandal erupted over spending by the agency. It was revealed that hundreds of thousand of dollars had been spent, on items ranging from trips to vehicles. Some of the spending was not authorized and some money was never accounted for.

Lerat said on Thursday that he was happy to be back in a leadership role with the FSIN."

Why, it was just earlier this week that I linked to a report from First Nations member Don Sandburg saying the same thing as I say.
