10/16/08 - Chippewa Cree deny election results protest


The Chippewa Cree Tribe's election board on Wednesday denied a tribal member's attempt to protest the results of last week's primary election on the Rocky Boy's Indian Reservation. The protest was led by Kenneth Blatt St. Marks, who earned 320 votes in the race for tribal chairman during the primary election Oct. 7, but fell 45 votes short of advancing to the Nov. 4 general election.
