Just another NON-native Alaskan Indian DC-Native ex-Govt Senior exploiting Govt contracting loop-holes! Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) has consistently introduced legislation to strip Alaskan Native Corporations (ANCs) of their “special contracting privileges” where they get billions of dollars worth of federal set-aside contracts. Beginning last Sep, the Washington post did an expose on this set-aside program that McCaskill described as ANCs "masquerading as a solution to the problems in Alaska" without providing sufficient benefits to taxpayers or native shareholder." Relatively little of the money from the contracts into the Native-Alaskan Indian shareholder pockets, as shown by audits, annual reports and congressional documents.
