: It is my opinion that Wes has extreme talent on the screen as an actor, however his embracing the Chad Smith faction of the Cherokee Tribal election was in bad form for someone I once admired for his projection on the screen as a honest American Indian Idol. Chad Smith according to newspapers has a wife and three children and a second family of three children , which he is not married to, roughly the same ages as well. Chad Smith was Charged in court with a couple of charges to boot for distrubances as well at the Cherokee Courthouse.My Question to Wes is why?
Let me answer this one. Chad Smith was separated from his wife and yes, did during that time begin another family. Then he and his wife get back together. He supports both families and is a very good father to all his children.
Wes supported Chad because Chad is interested in returning the Cherokee government back to the Cherokee people and not allow it to stay in the hands of a few. He is also fiscally responsible. His "arrest" on the courthouse was in response to the BIA manhandling a elderly woman who he defended.
Wes did a wonderful video about why he and so many others supported Chad in this campaign (me included) and it lays out exactly why he felt Chad was the best man for the job.
My question is, do you lose respect for everyone who votes differently than you do?
Sorry, you got my dander up on this one!
