KHON TV: Where Politicians Spend Your Money


From Senate Minority Blog, May 15, 2014

On Monday, May 12, KHON TV Investigative Reporter Gina Mangieri reported on how State Legislators use their annual Legislative Allowance. Senator Slom has not used his annual allowance since first taking office in 1997. The KHON report focuses on legislative allowance expenditures for the last two years (2013 – 2014).

From her report:

“Over the past couple of years, Sen. Malama Solomon’s office (D-Hilo, Hamakua, Kohala, Waimea, Waikoloa, Kona) has turned in the most for allowance reimbursements at more than $21,000. Sen. Sam Slom (R- Hawaii Kai, Kuliouou, Niu, Aina Haina, Waialae-Kahala, Diamond Head) has turned in the least — as in none — followed by Brower at second-lowest with only about $5,800 reimbursed over two years.”
