Choctaw Election Appeal to be Heard Friday

The Choctaw Tribal Council will hear an appeal of the results in the chief’s race later this week.

Beasley Denson lost the election to incumbent Chief Phyllis Anderson by about 160 votes in June. He has challenged the results, citing several alleged discrepancies.

The Tribal Election Committee has rejected the claims and affirmed the results.
