HILO, Hawaii: During her brief time giving testimony at the Board of Ethics meeting on Tuesday, the embattled County Clerk made mention of the voter fraud investigation that police say is underway in Hawaii County.
Jamae Kawauchi has said little on the matter, but during the public meeting, she shared a little more information.
Law enforcement officials say the investigation was launched based on information provided by the Hawaii County Office of Elections involving elections that were conducted in 2010.
Police say that Voter Fraud is a class C felony.
The investigation is being handled by Detectives of the Area I Criminal Investigation Section, but aside from that, no other details were released.
The Office of the County Clerk also sent out a media release, only to say that since this is an active investigation, they will not provide comment.
