Another Political Fallout

Indian Fund Investigator Angrily Quits

Basically, a court-appointed investigator quit over disgust with the government's delays. Alan Balaran was appointed to investigate a class-action lawsuit over energy companies bilking American Indians out of oil and gas on Indian land. Balaran states he was disgusted because the Interior department was delaying the case with frivolous motions, and he had found evidence of different prices based on race, trust informatin being destroyed and bad record keeping.

What sad is that this isn't shocking.
