Summary:

A Connecticut anti-casino group, Town Action to Save Kent, hired powerful Washington, D.C., lobbyists who allegedly convinced the White House and the Department of Interior to reverse federal acknowledgment of the Schaghticoke tribe, according to documents obtained under FOIA by Indian Country Today. The tribe sought federal recognition so it could build a casino.
