Attorney says suspended tribal chairman acted courageously


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Suspended Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate Chairman Bruce Renville should be commended for trying to clean up rampant drug abuse on the Dakotas reservation, not taken to task for an act of courage, a former state U.S. attorney said.

The Tribal Council suspended Renville earlier this month for ordering a surprise mass drug testing of hundreds of tribal government employees in August, calling it a misuse of power. The council will hold a hearing Friday on whether to remove him from office.
