In the affidavits, Glenn Hudson, who has been defeated by Chief Stevenson three times, the last time by just 29 votes, appeals on the basis of allegations that Chief Stevenson indulged in "corrupt practices" and tampered with mail-in ballot boxes. One former band councillor said in the affidavits he estimated Chief Stevenson "gave between $75,000 and $100,000, in exchange for votes."
Mr. Hudson's claims are supported by a petition of 270 members of the Peguis band, who have formed a group called Peguis First Nation for Democracy. Eleven band members have signed affidavits detailing what they claim are widespread irregularities.
