Just Co-Incidence, Of Course

The JSOnline reports that the Menomonee and Potowatomi are in a fight over "territory"--they both claim to have inhabited the Kenosha area long, long ago.

But the interesting paragraph in the story is here:

Nonetheless, the heightened concern over whether the Menominee tribe has historic Kenosha ties dovetails with legislation introduced by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) last month that would ban new off-reservation casinos unless a tribe had a proven "temporal, cultural and geographic" connection to a proposed casino site.

IIRC, there's a good deal of lobbyist money and campaign contributions being spent by various tribal gambling interests.

Has Marty Schreiber been visiting with John McCain?
