Wadena files another challenge to White Earth election

Darrell "Chip" Wadena has filed another challenge to the election he lost on the White Earth Ojibwe Reservation in Minnesota.

Wadena lost to Erma Vizenor by a margin of 59-41 percent. Vizenor won on the strength of off-reservation voting, which Wadena, the tribe's former chairman, says is illegal.

Wadena's first challenge to the election, alleging widespread fraud, was rejected last week.
