Bemidji Pioneer: Opponent, 2 council members oppose LaRose certification for Leech Lake election

CASS LAKE—Leech Lake's longtime secretary/treasurer Arthur "Archie" LaRose was certified Tuesday as a candidate for the band's upcoming June election over the objections of an opponent and two other members of the tribal council.

During an acrimonious meeting Tuesday morning held at the Palace Casino Hotel, District II Representative Steve White and District I Representative Penny DeVault voted against certifying LaRose. At issue is LaRose's criminal record. He was convicted of third-degree assault and trespass in 1992.
