Fort Sill vs. Gov. Martinez

The Albuquerque Journal reports on the ongoing war between the Fort Sill Apaches and the Governor, now back in the state Supreme Court for the second time in two years.  The new gaming compact negotiated by the state and approved by the Legislature specifically excludes the tribe’s little plot of land on I-10 near Deming, and the governor is adamantly opposed to a separate deal with Nana’s people,

But as far as I know, she’s never explained just why she’s determined to block the tribe’s ambitions. It can’t be because she opposes additional casinos in NM, since her new compact with the other tribes specifically allows at least four new gambling meccas.
