There have been many posts on facebook about the District 7 election. Timothy Houseberg has compiled a list comparing and contrasting the dramatic donation discrepancy between all of the candidates. (Financials Attached)
Robert Eagle and Frankie Duncan are not taking donations for their campaign and are self-funding.
This is not the case for Canaan Duncan who reported a staggering
$33 thousand in campaign donations.
$15 thousand came directly from officers or directors at Cherokee Nation Businesses. Most notably our non-Cherokee CEO Shawn Slaton.
The most significant contributor was Tribal First. A company out of San Diego that has a history of abusing Cherokee employees and not paying workman’s compensation. https://www.tribalfirst.com/
Duncan started raising funds before the tribal council had a chance to even vote on a special election. He started raising funds while he was still a Cherokee Nation employee, showing that Duncan abused his position in the Cherokee Nation government.
According to numerous reports, Canaan or his team of paid “volunteers” fanned out across District 7 to gather absentee ballot requests starting November 2, 2018. Once again this was before the Tribal Council set an election date or even had a chance to vote on a special election.
The election commission and the current administration is making a mockery of the Cherokee election process.
