Who's Who guide to complaint filed against former Mashpee tribe chairman Glenn Marshall

Who's Who guide to the five count complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney in U.S. District Court and alleging criminal wrongdoing by former Mashpee Wampanoag tribal chairman Glenn A. Marshall including allegations of federal campaign finance violations, wire transfer fraud, tax fraud, embezzling $380,000 to pay personal expenses and fraudulently accepting payments from the Social Security Administration.

Investor A - Herb Strather; Detroit-based casino syndicator; founding member of AtMashpee LLC (see docs); has acknowledged to reporters that he is "Investor A." Herbert J. Strather is Resident Agent of AtMashpee Notes LLC, an enterprise established one year ago (12.08.07) when Strather's corporate counsel Jason Q. Wilson filed articles of organization for the LLC.

Laurence B. Deitch, an attorney at Bodman LLP, is Resident Agent and manager of AtMashpee LLC. Deitch and Strather, who lead the efforts to legalize commercial gambling in Detroit, were original partners in Atwater Entertainment Associates LLC which eventually morphed into Detroit's MotorCity Casino (a d/b/a for Detroit Entertainment LLC). Both Strather and Deitch opted to sell their interests in MotorCity Casino before it opened its doors -- Strather because he reportedly feared the Michigan Gaming Control Board might find him ineligible for a license and Deitch, a University of Michigan Regent, because reportedly he anticipated a future constantly questionning conflicts of interest.

Investor B - Floyd Gallegos; resident of Battle Creek, MI; an MIT-educated Yaqui Indian who helps tribes obtain grants and other assistance; an acquaintance of Strather's; reportedly investor in AtMashpee LLC.

From Middleborough: My town is now a mess due to the scare tactics and abuse of the now known about "scripted" events used by these casino backers.
They came into town using their mouthpiece, Glen Marshall, verbally promised the town everything from how much money our business's would make to how much happier our town would be, and yes, our town leadership fell for it, hook, line, and sinker! Shame on these greedy investers, shame on the greedy Marshall's of this country. Shame on my Town's leadership for not doing any homework, they were forewarned by Amhelia Bingham a true Mashpee Wamponoag elder in the very beginning of this fiasco! Everything she told them did come to pass, watch the video of Mrs. Bingham trying to tell our board of selectmen what was really going on with her tribe. If interested please go to web site, very sad to see how they treat her, YES big shame on them!!
