United Keetoowah Band officials say they'll move forward with impeachment proceedings

Updated:
(Muskogee-AP) -- The United Keetoowah Band Council is going forward with impeachment proceedings against two tribal officers despite a restraining order from a tribal judge.

The board voted 8-to-3 to impeach tribal treasurer Julie Moss and secretary Ernestine Berry.

Moss is accused of not giving up her membership in the Cherokee Nation when she took office. Berry is accused of not keeping adequate records, mishandling funds and hiding an audit from the council.

Tribal Judge Dewayne Littlejohn issued a restraining order on Saturday to stop the council's action.

But Council member Don Adair says the council is the tribe's governing body. Adair says the judicial branch of the tribe does what the council tells it to do.
