Tulsi Gabbard's Opponent? He's the Smoking Guy08/28/2012
Gabbard, the former Honolulu City Council member, state legislator and war veteran, you've heard of her.
Crowley, a handyman with a diverse background, is much less well known, except for those who have paid attention to recent battles over curbing smoking rights in bars, restaurants and other places.
In Monday's Q&A with Crowley, the candidate talked with Civil Beat about his campaign platform, which focuses on the need to apply common sense to fix a dysfunctional Washington, D.C.
In this second and final installment, Crowley explains how he will defeat Gabbard by playing up his anti-rail, pro-traditional marriage positions.
He also shares the information that as many as 150 bars across the state allow smoking in their establishments in spite of anti-smoking laws. The interview was conducted at O'Toole's Irish Pub in Honolulu, where Crowley puffed away on a cigar.
