Wampum: No way, no how.

Hillary Clinton, Dick Gephardt and Peabody Coal? An expose from Wampum:

I vaguely remember the news last spring that Gephardt was setting up an “energy” lobbying firm. I had other things on my mind (the Griles and Federici indictments) so didn’t look into it much. Then this morning, Melissa reported that Hillary Clinton has now brought on Gephardt as a ” senior economic advisor”, and reminded us of one of his clients: Peabody Energy, e.g., Peabody Coal.

Wampum: Chad Smith’s October Surprise…

From Wampum: A rumor started gaining steam yesterday over on John and David Cornsilk’s Cherokee board. Apparently, Chad Smith approached the lawyers for the Freedmen with a deal: Ask Congresswoman Watson to hold off on introducing her anti-Cherokee bill, and he would work to get the Freedmen separate “federal recognition” and gaming operations. Well, the Freedmen bit, and Watson put the bill back in her pocket for seven days.

An interesting article on the Wampum blog. It pretty much represents my opinion of the Chad Smith crowd, and what’s happening with the Cherokee Nation elections:

Of course, those seven days aren’t up until tomorrow, two days before the election, when it will be too late to have an impact on the outcome of the Cherokee election.
