San Pasqual leaders face recall over membership flap

Three leaders of the San Pasqual Band Of Mission Indians are facing a recall for trying to invalidate the addition of 212 people to tribal rolls.

The Chairman Allen Lawson, Secretary-Treasurer Angela Martinez-McNeal and Councilman Dave Toler attempted to cancel the meeting in which the new members were added, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The leaders are also accused of holding meetings and conducting business off the reservation.

The tribe currently has 300 members. The tribe's enrollment director said the 212 people being added to the rolls have been waiting as long as 20 years to become enrolled.
