Traitors: Oneida Business Committee & Oneida Election Board Illegally Schedule Unlawful Election

On February 25, 2015, the Oneida Appeals Commission’s Appellate Body dismissed Docket # 14-AC-018, Debraska, Dodge, Cornelius & Graham v. Oneida Business Committee, Oneida Election Board & Oneida Law Office stating:

This case will not be concluded prior to March 1, 2015. Pursuant to the provisions of Resolution 1-7-13-B as enacted by the Oneida General Tribal Council this matter is therefore dismissed without prejudice.

Plaintiffs-Appellants have until March 30, 2015, to file an appeal of that dismissal with the Oneida Tribal Judiciary, a body whose election circumstances, ethics, basic competency of jurisdiction, and legitimate existence are all questionable at best.

Today the Oneida Business Committee illegally adopted the unlawful recommendation of the Oneida Election Board to schedule a Special Election to address an OBC vacancy:

The Oneida Business Committee has approved the recommendation of the Oneida Election Board for a Special Election to fill the vacancy on the Oneida Business Committee.  The election is set for Saturday, April 11, 2015 with polls open from 7 am to 7 pm. Should you have questions please contact the Oneida Election Board at

As we’ve noted, OBC member Tehassi Hill wrote in his Kalihwisaks OBC Forum column that he agrees that General Tribal Council never voted to hold an election to fill the OBC vacancy:

Normally we would have had two votes in the reconsideration process. The first vote would be to see if there is support to readdress the previous action to vote down option B. If that vote succeeded, then we would revote on option B. We only voted once and it was recognized as the actual vote for option B. I feel this action was out of order.

Article III, Section 3 of the Oneida Tribal Constitution is clear:

The General Tribal Council may at any regular or special meeting fill any vacancies that occur on the Business Committee for the unexpired term.

Only GTC is allowed to decide whether to fill an OBC position or to just leave it vacant.

Nothing in the Election Law allows OBC nor the Election Board to usurp GTC’s sole Constitutional authority on this matter.

Why can’t OBC Chair Tina Danforth just admit that she was flat-out wrong to falsely claim that a ‘Motion to Reconsider’ is the same as a ‘Motion to Adopt’ and simply allow GTC to decide whether to fill the OBC vacancy in accordance with the Constitution?

Because – like other OBC members and Election Board members – Tina Danforth is an ignorant and unethical traitor undermining the authority and violating the rights of the General Tribal Council of the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin.

The Oneida Business Committee and the Oneida Election Board are merely demonstrating that they are willing to openly violate the Tribal Constitution and Laws, presumably with the assistance and blessing of the Oneida Law Office led by Chief Counsel Jo Anne House who is also a traitor.
