Hawaii Republican Party  Calls For Investigation of Misconduct by Senator Donna Mercado Kim

News Release from Hawai'i Republican Party May 22, 2013

The Hawaii Republican Party is deeply concerned about alleged improper influence and contact between Senator Donna Mercado Kim and M.R.C. Greenwood, Chancellor, University of Hawaii, regarding admission of Senator Mercado Kim's son to the UH Law School.

These allegations of misconduct are very serious and must be investigated. If substantiated, Senator Mercado Kim must be held accountable for violating her public trust. The citizens of Hawaii are entitled to integrity, transparency, and ethical conduct from all of our public servants, especially our leaders.

The Hawaii Republican Party will continue to champion the cause of honest government and holding all of our elected officials to the highest standards of integrity for official conduct. We call on the Democratic Party of Hawaii to publicly demand ethical conduct from its members who are elected officials and support a full and transparent investigation of this alleged misconduct.
