Documents indicate tribe misled voters on casino sites

Officials of the Tohono O’odham Nation were discussing possible sites for a casino in Maricopa County even as tribes were telling voters in 2002 there would be no new tribal gaming in the Phoenix area if they approve a ballot measure.

Documents the tribe was forced to disclose in a pending lawsuit show officials were already looking at land west of Phoenix before the vote over tribal gaming. And the hand-written minutes of the closed meeting also show there already was interest in moving close to Glendale where, while the land was more expensive, the profits from a casino would be greater.
