"Since an election was held three weeks ago for chief of one of the nation's largest American Indian tribes, the incumbent and challenger have each been declared the winner -- twice. Unofficial and official results, along with two recounts, have come up with four different tallies in the close and bitter race between Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Chad Smith and longtime councilman Bill John Baker. The second recount ended Sunday with Smith ahead by five votes, but that result has yet to be declared official." (07/18/11)
