    Sen. McCain breaks promise on Tohono O’odham casino

    McCain has been an odd player during this west-side casino controversy.McCain, during his days as a U.S. Congressman, co-sponsored the Gila Bend Indian Reservation Lands Replacement Act that was signed into law in 1986. That Act gave the Nation the legal right to purchase up to 9,880 acres of private lands in Pima, Pinal, or Maricopa counties to replace all of the reservation land that the federal government inadvertently — but carelessly — destroyed when it built the Painted Rock Dam near Gila Bend.
