Lobbyist reports say little on influence in Hawaii
HONOLULU (AP) — Lobbyist disclosures in Hawaii may be a misnomer — the records don’t disclose much.
Even the state’s legislative leadership admits that disclosure laws are weak and enforcement nearly non-existent. A perfect environment for unmonitored influence peddling. No one in authority seems to mind. And we just keep electing the same old faces to public office. We have no one to blame but ourselves. Ah, the joys of living in paradise. Aloha, Russ.
