I can understand him not knowing where the money came from when he accepted it. But now that he knows, is he anxiously making an effort to give it back, as a matter of principle? Would really do wonders for his credibility. I'm a staunch Democrat and liberal, but would seriously consider giving Mullan my support rather than Wallace, if he returned the Obama stimulus money to the Indians.

There is no way he didn't know. When you sign a contract with someone who is using Stimulus money, you sign a contract that clearly states that the funds are provided through the ARRA program, and details the regulations that must be followed as a result. For example, you must agree to use American made materials and comply with the Davis-Bacon.

No matter who you sign the contract with, you do not get federal money without knowing it is federal money.

Now, having said that, his receiving Stimulus dollars was a good thing. That $370,000.00 allowed a lot of people to feed and house their families for a while.

What do you expect? All right wing anti government Republicans are nothing but phonies. These are the most hypocritical people to ever walk the earth. Whatever they say, take the opposite as being the truth.

Keep in mind....ALL five Civilized Tribes are pure Socialist Organizations. All members work for the tribe. All employees are public indian employees of the Tribe. Bill Baker supports Socialism and gave his support to Obama at the DNC.

Typical Republican attacking the stimulus while at the same time holding out their hands to take stimulus money for themselves.

NEVER re-elect a politician if you want the people to be represented. Clean House in Washington in November, 2012.

Mullin is just flat caught lying to the people right out of the gate. Right-wingers like these kind of people because they are just like them. He will probably get elected and the same folks who elect him will complain about government not serving them the way it should.

They have a chance to not send the same kind of people to office by voting for Wallace, but watch them vote for Mullin.
