Kickapoo in Kansas expands legal complaint

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kickapoo Tribe has expanded a legal complaint against its former chairman to include a former treasurer.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the northeast Kansas tribe announced last week that Bobbi Darnell was added to the lawsuit in tribal court. Darnell was the tribal treasurer from October 2011 through October 2014.

The tribe is accusing its former chairman, Steve Cadue, of falsifying meeting minutes to fraudulently pass an unbalanced budget. The lawsuit now includes Darnell.

Cadue said earlier that the lawsuit is without merit and should have been handled through the tribal council, not in a courtroom.

There was no published phone number for Darnell in Horton.
