Cayetano vs PRP: You're corrupt so you have no right to say I'm corrupt

Borreca: During Cayetano's uphill campaign for mayor in 2012, PRP may not have lied in the particular, but their commercials absolutely deconstructed the truth.

The irony of the PRP campaign was that it darkly claimed that Cayetano while governor ran a "pay-to-play" scheme to force money from contractors in return for government business.

First, if that were true on its face, it is illegal under state and federal laws. Second, the claim is being made by one of the biggest hidden conglomerations of people who benefit from the construction industry.  (LOL!)

(Translation: You're corrupt so you have no right to say I'm corrupt!)

The hypocrisy of PRP came from its executive director, John White, who assisted in the campaign and defended it and today will not talk about the apology.

Mazie Hirono was Cayetano's lieutenant governor; she also received contributions that were ruled illegal. When she served in Congress Hirono's executive assistant was John White, but there is no discussion about "pay-to-play" involving Hirono from White....

What can be said is that PRP showed the way to a new depth of negative campaigning that will hurt, not help, Hawaii...('s political elite to stay in power.  Above all, we must remember to avoid opening Pandora's box as explained >>> here.)

Reality: Pay to Play: Will Cayetano Retaliate Against Hirono?

The following letter will be printed as an ad in the Sunday June 15, 2014 Star-Advertiser:

Dear Governor Cayetano,       June 10, 2014

During the course of the 2012 Honolulu mayoral campaign, Pacific Resource Partnership (PRP) paid for a widespread media campaign regarding former Governor Benjamin J. Cayetano. Governor Cayetano believes that these radio and television advertisements gave many the impression that Governor Cayetano personally had broken the law or acted corruptly. To the extent any viewer or listener reached that conclusion, PRP apologizes to Governor Cayetano.

PRP commends Governor Cayetano for his long record of public service to the State of Hawaii. In recognition of Governor Cayetano's service to the community, PRP will donate $100,000 to the University of Hawaii Medical School and $25,000 to the Hawaiian Humane Society in his name.
