Hirono to Case: “Leave my mother out of it!”
By News Release @ 9:44 PM :: 4624 Views :: Energy, Environment

Statement Released today by Mazie Hirono:

In just the past four days, Ed Case has compared me to a “bowl of warm jello,”called me “pathetic,” and labeled me “sad.” This pattern of behavior is profoundly disappointing but no one should worry—I can take those insults. I have faced far greater challenges in my life than personal attacks from an opponent in a political campaign. But last night, Ed Case crossed the line that we do not cross in Hawaii, denigrating my personal background and my family. I would ask, in his campaign of escalating insults, that Ed Case leave my mother out of it.”

Hirono is responding to an interview with Ed Case posted on YouTube.

Here is the transcript of Case’s remarks:

I think really, uh, uh, with eighty days to go, as the poll just showed, people know generally who we are. We know that Mazie was born in Japan and then immigrated to this country at a young age and was brought up by a single mother.That’s something that she’s been very clear about right from the get-go. And people know, I hope people know, I was born and raised in Hilo, fourth generation of my family in Hawaii, and I have deep roots here, and worked in the private and public sectors. So I think people have a general sense of who we are. Now it’s time to discuss, what does that translate into? We’ve both served in the United States Congress, we both have comparable public service careers, I’ve had thirty years in the private sector which she hasn’t had any. But I think the bottom line is what have we done with our upbringings. What is our record in Congress. What do we think,today. And what is our agenda, going forward. I think those are fair questions. And I think what’s going to happen in all honesty is we’re going to get into the last eighty days and Mazie is just going to remain stuck in the past, keep on talking about you know, her background and never translating it to, you know, record, thoughts, agenda.
