Navajo President Ben Shelly, Tribal Council Speaker Johnny Naize, Bates, former President Joe Shirley Jr. — likely tribal presidential candidates — all have been targets. But Shelly, for one, is taking the attention in stride.

Deswood Tome, who will be managing Shelly's re-election campaign, burst out laughing over the president's supposed antics.

"Anybody who is in elected office is fair game," Tome said. "Andrew is targeting them, and he's bringing awareness through satire and humor."
