Mashpee Wampanoag casino deal questioned

A Massachusetts leader wants to reopen a casino deal with the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, citing the recent guilty plea of the tribe's former chairman.

Adam M. Bond, the chairman of the selectmen in the town of Middleboro, is concerned about the corruption admitted by Glenn Marshall. “He admitted to fraudulent charges, and that bears on the agreement,” Bond told The Brockton Enterprise.

But other town leaders say they made a deal with the tribe, not Marshall. They want to wait for the tribe to resolve its issues before looking at the casino. The tribe is holding an election next month and two top officials who were close to Marshall aren't running.

“We need to take a breath and fix the situation, not trash it,” Muriel C. Duphily said.
