Land for the aborted Star Lake Casino project in Otter Tail County was purchased for as much as 10 times its assessed value, according to an anti-corruption task force (the Other Governmental Project) in White Earth, which is recommending that its findings be turned over to the FBI for criminal investigation.

Bemidji-based attorney Mike Garbow, who is leading the investigation with the task force, said the land purchases were made by a limited liability corporation - the Central Minnesota Land Company, LLC - which was set up by tribal attorney Joe Plumer. The land was later transferred to the White Earth Band of Minnesota Chippewa Tribe.
