Theron Parker, 45, provided U.S. District Court in Tacoma with statements to that effect as he sought leniency in the sentence he will receive on Monday.
"Theron asked if he would have the Makah Tribal Council's support.
"Ben [Johnson] said they would support the whale hunt if Theron decided to go out for a whale."
Talk about hypocrisy. Not to mention a public-relations nightmare. This could sink the tribe's chances of ever getting approval for another whale hunt.
