Standing Rock primary goes to court with Little Eagle challenge

Fort Yates, North Dakota (AP) 9-09

The tribal chair candidate who finished third in the primary election on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation wants a tribal court judge to decide whether she should have another chance to be on the September ballot.

Avis Little Eagle, the tribe’s vice chairwoman, says some people who wanted to vote for her were not allowed to.

The top two vote-getters in the primary move on to the general election. Little Eagle finished third, one vote behind current Chairman Ron His Horse Is Thunder. A tribal election committee upheld the results after a recount.

There is no question that former chairman Charles Murphy will advance to the general election on the reservation that straddles the North Dakota-South Dakota border. He received more than double the votes of His Horse Is Thunder and Little Eagle in the July 15 primary.
