Tribe votes to impeach chief after residency flap

 


NARRAGANSETT, R.I. (AP) - Members of Rhode Island’s Narragansett Indian tribe have voted to impeach their chief sachem of nearly two decades following reports he may be a Florida resident.

WPRI-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2dkamce) members of the tribe’s executive board voted to impeach Matthew Thomas last week. The full tribal assembly unanimously agreed in a vote taken Saturday morning.

The move comes several months after an investigation by the news station showed that Thomas obtained a Florida driver’s license and registered to vote in Florida. Florida tax assessor’s records show that Thomas owns a home in Port Charlotte, Florida.
