I just finished reading a post on Kaniela Ing's Facebook page. He writes this about Rep. George Fontaine:
"Fact: no laws were passed, and no funds were secured for South Maui since 2010. These are the two main jobs of a representative.
The Maui delegation needs a South Maui representative who will work with them, not against them, to receive any funding or pass any law benefiting South Maui. This means we must elect a Democrat in order to fund the high school."
For Ing's information, the funds that he mentions had lapsed in 2008 and Fontaine was elected in 2010. This only proves that Ing has no idea on how the funding works, or was too lazy to check his facts and was only out to slander Fontaine. Shame on Ing.
In The Maui News on Oct. 5, the headline is that Ing faces spending allegations from state Republican Party. Ing had a chance to answer to these charges but chose to dig himself into a deeper hole by ignoring them. These are serious charges that could legally bar him from any public office. Ing needs to learn the laws before he ever can be considered to make them.
