The evil in front of you

From "Davis makes pre-emptive strike on recall camp":

Although Davis denied it, his visit [to the Morongo Indian Reservation near Palm Springs] appeared to be a pre-emptive move. Morongo and other wealthy, politically powerful tribes are being courted by the Davis recall campaign. While none has signed on so far, at least publicly, that's a prospect the governor clearly wants to avoid...

But the governor and his political handlers undoubtedly were aware that Morongo had hosted a recent meeting of tribal leaders at the behest of Rep. Darrell Issa of Vista, a Republican who has made a growing, six-figure investment in the recall.

Morongo tribal Chairman Maurice Lyons acknowledged the meeting took place, but said only four tribes participated. Other tribal leaders also have confirmed the meeting, during which Issa appealed for their financial support — reportedly $100,000 per tribe. Representatives of the recall committee could not be reached for comment yesterday...

"We said no. We're not going to get involved with the recall efforts," [San Manuel tribal Chairman Deron Marquez] said. "There is something to be said about knowing the evil in front of you. We know what we're going to get with Governor Davis."
