And [Seneca Nation President Matthew] Pagels didn’t stop there. He also took aim at Bill Hochul, the governor’s husband, who is senior vice president and general counsel for Delaware North, which runs concessions at the Bills’ current home, Highmark Stadium, in Orchard Park, New York.
Delaware North could reap big dividends if the Buffalo business keeps feeding Bills fans in the new stadium.
“I’m sure that was welcome news to the governor’s husband, whose company not only operates video lottery terminals within the Seneca Nation’s supposed gaming exclusivity zone with the state’s blessing, but the company will also make millions of dollars in concession business inside the state-owned stadium. And it’s being paid for on the backs of the Seneca Nation. Quite a sweetheart deal.”
The governor’s new stadium won’t be a product of progress, Pagels said.
“It will be a monument to Albany’s vindictive desire to punish the Seneca people,” he continued. “Unfortunately, it’s something we’re all too familiar with.”
Pagels had issued a clear demand for New York State to begin Compact discussions with the Seneca Nation.
“Don’t use the people of Western New York as pawns in your obvious desire to destroy the Seneca Nation,” he said. “You have an obligation under federal law to negotiate a Compact with the Seneca Nation in good faith. Honor it.”

Now it is being forced to admit that their story is a pack of lies.
