One General Accounting Office study on federal recognition wasn't enough for one Connecticut paper. The New London Day is calling for yet another review of the process.

"The whole Indian recognition process needs a thorough examination and reform by Congress," the paper writes.

The paper, without much supporting evidence, suggests Republicans as much to blame as Democrats. A GOP lobbyist who was paid $500,000 over the years by the Eastern Pequot Tribe happens to be the brother-in-law of Andrew Card, White House chief of staff, the paper points out.
