FBI INVESTIGATING OFFICE OF HAWAII AFFAIRS
HONOLULU – After a scathing state audit revealed massive financial and management problems and with two other internal audits under way, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) has definitely entered new territory. Secrecy and general lack of transparency continued during OHA’s Wednesday March 9 board meeting when Chair Collette Machado refused to divulge the name of the new investigating entity (FBI) even though the Attorney General’s office had sent a letter to OHA advising them of the FBI involvement. All such communications are in the public domain. After the board went into executive session behind closed doors, it was soon leaked that OHA attorney Robert Klein had advised the nine board members to hire their own attorneys. Stay tuned as this story develops.
