NESPELEM — The Colville Business Council on Thursday expelled tribal councilman Benjamin “Benny” Marchand, Jr. from office, citing misuse of a tribal credit card.

A news release from the Colville Tribes said expulsion means Marchand is removed for the remainder of his term and is banned from running in future elections. Marchand was initially appointed to the council two years ago and won election last year. He declined to comment.
