An investigation into a loan of tribal funds to the late Bill Bieloh of Walker led to a Monday morning Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe Tribal Council vote to prosecute Secretary/Treasurer Mike Bongo and former tribal Legal Director Eric Lochen and Executive Director Robert Aitken. Aitken and Lochen had already been terminated, and a petition for removal or recall of Bongo is in circulation.
