Vanished votes

Many people in Hawaii were happy that Obama won but did not realize how crooked our local election for Mayor was.

Big money PRP spent over $3 million on attack ads and phone calls to all homes with lies about big Ben [Cayetano]. Then 70 voting polling places somehow run out of paper ballots on voting day even with the facts that 274,885 paper ballots were printed and only 160,415 people voted! Suppress the vote! Anti-rail areas [were] short the paper ballots. Each polling place had only one electronic voting machine. Miles of people waiting in line, who knows how many gave up and did not vote? Good luck to Kirk Caldwell in the pockets of big rail.
