Graton Casino Rohnert ParkIn a recent cover story for the North Bay Bohemian, investigative journalist Peter Byrne told of how local power brokers Darius Anderson and Doug Boxer – yes, former Senator Barbara Boxer’s son – defrauded the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria in the guise of helping them build their casino in Rohnert Park.

We haven’t independently confirmed Byrne’s reporting – but you can read it in the Bohemian and judge for yourself.

Byrne also provided the original document recording the arbitration award in favor of the tribe.

The writer described his research to KRCB News Director Steve Mencher, starting with his pleasure at using a word that investigative reporters often shy away from.
