Denson Challenges Opponents to Debate

Choctaw Miko Beasley Denson has challenged his opponents to a debate on the issues.

Denson sent that challenge to Phyllis Anderson and Shirley Berg, with copies to the media. He said he's open on the terms of the debate.

Choctaw voters will go to the polls Sept. 6 to elect a new chief.

Anderson actually beat Denson in a previous election in July, but the tribal council threw out the results of that runoff and the general election June 14.

    AGT is closed and Tribal members were laid off.

    A debate??? Beasley would only lie anyway, like he's been doing all these years. What an embarrassing figure he turned out to be. We need leaders with sober actions and thoughts.

    MIKO BEASLEY DENSON Lied to everybody and even had a party for Bok Homa Casino being paid off. PAID OFF IN FULL. HOWEVER, on Monday, at the Tribal Council Meeting he confirmed that the Tribe still owes the bank for the Bok Homa Casino and there's another thing he admitted but said he knew nothing about it. Whack!!!

    Pattison's pay is another issue under scrutiny. It went from $60,000 a month until February to more than $200,000 a month.

    Denson said the hike was because Mercury is now also consulting on the Bok Homa casino in Jones County. "Businesses don't do these things for free," he said. -clarion ledger
    Sounds to me that doug got a raise. As Miko says, businesses don't do things for free. Defered payments? Yeah right, I don't believe that and I also don't believe YOU'RE deferring Miko's payments. You should be smart enough to not listen to his lies.

    That's why there should be a debate one smart chata. Have you been listening or reading? Besides, what was your degree in? Sure hope it wasn't in English.

    We in PR are for Shirley Berg. We need a chief from Pearl River! When are you going to start your campaign? Please post.

    Well concerned you just be concerned with yourself. Tribe's money is in jeopardy and I guess you are a puppet to Beasley Denson so maybe you are just as bad as he is when you came back. I looking to the future which you are not. For four years he has run our tribe to the ground. Get real here if you are concerned! My smarts are for my people! You should be ashamed if you follow Beasley Denson. You know he wants non-indians to be poll watchers for the upcoming election using your money to treat these people right. The ordinance states tribal member only This means Beasley does not trust his own people and that is bullcrap. He is not using his own pay for that. come on see the hurt he is doing to our tribe instead of being his puppet like Dorothy, Peter, Berdie Steve, Lola, and those sit on the council defending him. How blind these people are. Our Tribe needs to flourish again and it's not happening.

    I saw Bobby Tubby after Beasley got beat in the runoff election and he could have tripped over his own lip it was hanging so low. Now he and Beasley are thanking god for another chance. What a laugh!

    Beasley Denson has no integrity whatsoever! Opps I almost called him Miko but he is not a Miko or a Chief. I am ashamed of myself for voting for him in the 1st place!

    ...tell us one good thing Beasley has done when he was in council? Remember, not everyone has been a chief to show their accomplishments. Beasley says his accomplishment is Bok Homa casino. He says it's paid in full and gave Doug a huge raise! Well...turns out Bok Homa is not paid off. Tribe still owes millions on it. Uh oh! And this came from the current administration. So how else does anybody want to defend him? Time to give Phyliss a chance, just like Beasley had.
