Reel Wamps details MORE financial abuses by Cromwell administration

Do Governor Deval Patrick, Senator Therese Murray and Economic Development Director Greg Bialecki still want to hitch their wagons to this horse?  This is one big train wreck smack in the middle of the Commonwealth's new casino plans for 2012.

Reel Wamps has documented a series of recently exposed fiscal abuses detailing use of Mashpee Wampanoag funds which includes:


  • Purchases of thousands of dollars in American Express travelers checks - cash - which were then dispersed without documentation for how they were spent to tribal council members
  • Personal expenses for gas, cars and even pornography
  • Travel and entertainment expenses for limousines, first-class airline tickets, high end hotel suites, theater tickets, booze and meals
How this is even possible is beyond comprehension.  It will be really embarrassing for the Massachusetts officials who supported the Mashpee Wampanoag special interest carve-out when the records show they benefited from these abuses when hobnobbing with Cedric and his cronies.  This saga simply won't stop unfolding, yet our elected officials seem intent on letting the State's interests get dragged further down the Indian casino abyss.

  2. It is a fact that purchases that are made on the American express card, if not validated properly, all items must be paid for out of pocket and reimbersed in full by the card holder. I wonder who is authorizing these cards. Why do they have lawyers and advisers if they do not give proper advise. Where is the money coming from to pay for these purchases? Why use the Tribe card when you are getting paid over 90K. I know that the Governor, MK, and everyone nationaly is looking at these ghetto con artist.

  3. It is time that the tribal members demand that this administration and that means all of the council step down for allowing this to go on .How could they do this to their own people all for a paycheck and a good time ,trips ,money golf, and do not forget porno,that dinner at Michael Jordan's must have been good .

  4. A provision in the casino law, states they must open their financials back to 2004...there is just no way they can cover their tracks on this one. Don't know how Mashpee could ever be considered, even if they joined forces with Aquinnah...well actually I wouldn't want Aquinnah tarnished by the likes of these fools. my bet is no tribal casino in the SouthCoast.

  5. why has this information not given to the DA or AG it is a crime ? Why are not members of this tribe doing anything about this?

    ReplyDelete
  6. In answer to your question, I personally hand delivered a petition and plea to the office of Attorney General Martha Coakley. We have heard nothing. Another Tribe member also did the same with the Barnstable County DA. Again we have heard nothing. It is extremely difficult to accomplish anything when the junta in control of the Tribe has a connection with the local media, via Paula Peters, a Cape Cod Times columnist and "wife" of Tribal treasurer Mark Harding.

  7. If the investors provided the tribe with the dollars and the tribal council spent it as it is being reported, I am not certain the state or federal officials can do anything. If the money spent was federal dollars designated for specific uses, different story. And, certainly the tribal membership must have a means by which to put a halt to the alleged expenditures.

    ReplyDelete
  8. If the investors provided the money to the tribe .Yes they did at the rate of 16% interest that the tribe has to pay back . And the means to put a halt is have a recall on grounds of malfeasance and nonfeasance.

  9. Truley Mashpee is out of control...those in power within the tribe have lived far beyond their means, with the hopes of landing a casino deal in the SouthCoast. Massachusetts Bureau of Indian Affairs is headed by Jim Peters a Mashpee.(Related to that Paula in article??) He only looks out for his tribe and wants them to rewrite Wampanoag History for their short termed financial gains, throwing everyone else under the bus. Aquinnah, Herring Pond, Chappaquidik, Royal House of Pokonoket,Nemasket and Pocasset. Mashpee has not honored their ancestors and Indian Affairs only awards grants to Mashpee....

    ReplyDelete
  10. I know you are talking about the people in office now. I am no fan of Jim Peters but he does not award grants only the Bureau does and if I am correct you must be Federal to get them, also Aquinnah gets them .

    -- John A. "Jim" Peters Jr. collects a paycheck as Commissioner of Indian Affairs for the Commonwealth of Mass. In that position he has been as worthless as taurine mamaries. Yes he is Paula's first cousin.

    -- The junta in power has indebted the Tribe for millions at usurious interest rates, and has nothing at all to show for it.

    -- The junta in power has stiffed vendors and consultants and generally destroyed the good will that we have earned over the years. We no longer have any real friends.

    -- The junta in power have been more concerned with consolidating their power and enjoying undeserved privilege than serving the Tribe at large.

    -- The junta in power moves to crush dissent and prevent any dissenter from holding or running for office. Any who succeed are excluded from certain meetings and are denied information. One candidate, who eventually won a seat, was mysteriously arrested the NIGHT BEFORE TWO DIFFERENT ELECTIONS HE WAS IN. The police later admitted that one was not an "arrestable offense." Not going to name any names, but the one Tribe member on the MPD is associated with the junta. The same police officer who abandoned his post at the election polls instead of watching the ballot box so his cousins could steal the election. (I'd better keep my tail lights lit and my speed in check!)

    These people have brought shame to our Tribe. It is high time that they, minus one or two, resign their positions. Do something decent for a change.

  14. every time you hear and get more information on what is going on with this tribe it gets worse.Maybe at the Sunday meeting the members should ask this admin and i mean all of the council to step down Because you know the finance report will be all lies and will not even add up.How much more abuse does this tribe have to take by this admin before something is done.

  17. Hey Cedric
    I hear you and your other corrupt councilors say they will pay back the money(In charge card use) that you all misappropriated back .Can not pay back money that was stolen. Why don't you and all the other council step down and bring some integrity back to this tribe. Chinese food and Dino's on the tribe hear you all were slapping that amex so hard this weekend it was interfering with other card holders.

  21. Paula I was wondering where you were. It is a mess and a shame what is happening to this tribe all so this Council can get a paycheck.the ego spending is called theft,malfeasance .Honor Cedric for stealing from Elder's and young people that is what your saying .The Ancestors are digging their way out of their resting place to get this tribes integrity back .

  23. Ia it true that the Mashpee Council officers and select Council were in NY celebrating with Genting and touring their slot and slop? Also getting MONEY to sell the TRIBE down the river by selling the tribes rights. Also the Council and employees are getting big bonus's this week? More money to steal more AMEX.

  24. Truly greatful that someone gets a Christmas bonus...give me a break. Do you realize how many kids we could train to take care of the land and be true stewards on just one of the councils saleries...No wonder no one trusts this tribe. Cedric go back to Dorchester and stay there.

  36. The SO CALLED COUNCIL will be giving the tribe a budget.How will the members know if the figures are correct since they have not been given a true finance report since when? All this smoke and mirrors is to take the heat off of their corruption and stealing from the tribe at 15% or is it more interest that we do not even know about? Tribal members should rise up and demand this Administration step down and then do a full accounting of the books.

  38. Well Cedric where was your good news at today's meeting, a lot of smoke and mirrors if I must say so. And the First Lady (sick) crying when she was called out on a lie as usual. The meeting was a waste of time ,lie lie lie. Your Boss (Genting) was there to watch over their investment and make sure your not messing up things. Also the Loan interest was dropped to 10% ,what loan thought there was no loan, more lies that have been told to tribal members

  39. its too bad on us that ceddie got us a loan we didn't want so we could pay all the council the big bucks we know where Ceddie is going and you can always spell it with 4letters.
