In spring 2011, Mr. Kelly addressed the seven-member tribal council. “I am here regretfully, on a matter that brings me against the chairman,” he said, explaining that he thought Mr. Hall was violating conflict-of-interest rules.

Mr. Hall responded, “We’re not the ethics board here, Steve.”

Mr. Kelly asked him if he felt bound by the ethics code.

“There is none,” the chairman said.

Mr. Kelly waved a copy of the code.

“There is no ethics board,” the chairman said.


Could un-named democratic Senator behind bi-partisan drive for Hall be Cory Booker? (following up his recent heroic championing of health benefits).
