    The American Indian leader spearheading the campaign to change the name of the Washington Redskins is not a legitimate member of the tribe he leads, according to a New York State Assemblywoman, but rather an Obama crony who is raking in casino money and paying back only small stipends to his tribe members.

    Oneida Nation Representative Ray Halbritter, who is also the CEO of Oneida Nation Enterprises, is not recognized in his position by the Grand Council of Chiefs governing the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy. Halbritter is not a legitimate member of the Oneida tribe, Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney told The Daily Caller.

    “He is not even technically an Oneida. There is not a drop of Oneida in him,” Tenney said.

    Halbritter traces his lineage back to a woman who lived on traditional Iroquois Confederacy land, but as a non-member of the Six Nations.

    The intellectuals are saying that the name is no longer valid in the dictionaries. I am thinking that they should call the team after the bureaucrats--the Washington Pointy-heads.

    Goodell repeated Sunday night that the league would listen to all parties about the nickname, not just NFL fans. "We want to make sure what we're doing is not insulting in any way to anybody," Goodell said.

    Sorry, that's the only size the website has, and its a waste of time for me to download and resize a JPG file I've already used the one time I ever will.
