Foxwoods seeks to oust Chairman Michael Thomas for pledging to ignore Wall Street while dealing with possible $2 billion default

Mashantucket Pequot tribal councilors relieved Chairman Michael Thomas of his duties Monday, charging that he “betrayed our trust” by issuing a letter to tribal members describing his plan to deal with the tribe's dire financial circumstances.

The councilors sent an e-mail to Thomas in which they called for his resignation, closed his office and placed him on administrative leave, according to a tribal official who asked not to be named. The e-mail was sent by six members of the seven-member council. Thomas is the seventh member.
