Akaka Election Challenge Tossed, Filed Too Late09/04/2012
The Hawaii Supreme Court has tossed an election challenge filed by U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka’s granddaughter.
Akaka was running for the Democratic nomination for House District 6 on the Big Island. Nicole Lowen won the primary.
Most of Akaka’s concerns with the primary involved polling places staying open later than expected due to slip-ups by Hawaii County Clerk Jamae Kawauchi.
