    Hawaii has passed the “vexatious requester” law. It has been sent to the governor for her signature.

      And they changed it to say that an agency doesn’t have to make the record available if they’ve already answered a request once and their answer isn’t going to change. (It used to say they didn’t need to respond if they had already provided the record or if the OIP agrees that they don’t need to provide the record.)

      IOW, if they wrongly deny a request the law no longer requires that they either answer the request OR disclose the document. If I’m reading this correctly, this allows them the option to deny a request and be done with it. I wonder what the role of the OIP is supposed to be in all this.

      If I’m reading this correctly, all an agency has to do is deny a response and say that their answer isn’t going to change on that request – and then the law no longer requires them to disclose that record. I wonder if that means that when you appeal to the OIP on a wrongful denial the OIP will say that since an answer has been given already to that request the law no longer requires disclosure. If so, then Hawaii has just suspended UIPA until July 2013.

      Does anybody else see this the same way I do? The text is below.

      I think I’m going to e-mail them and make sure they know that none of the requests I sent which they dithered around on are completed until they obey the law that was in effect when I made the request. Those requests will remain open and I will continue to e-mail them for follow-up until they give me a lawful response. They’re going to get an earful. This isn’t going to stop anything. But it says a lot that Hawaii was willing to suspend their open records law just for Obama – the sunset date makes it absolutely clear that this is just for Obama.

      Wow. Could they bend over to be screwed by Obama any more obviously than this? I think they should be arrested for indecent exposure. lol

      Here’s the measure as passed:

      SECTION 1. Section 92F-11, Hawaii Revised Statutes, is amended by amending subsection (b) to read as follows:

      “(b) Except as provided in section 92F-13, each agency upon request by any person shall make government records available for inspection and copying during regular business hours[.]; provided that an agency shall not be required to make government records available or respond to a person’s subsequent duplicative request, if:

      (1) After conducting a good faith review and comparison of the earlier request and the pending request, the agency finds that the pending request is duplicative or substantially similar in nature;

      (2) The pending request has already been responded to within the past year; and

      (3) The agency’s response to the pending request would remain unchanged.”

      SECTION 2. Statutory material to be repealed is bracketed and stricken. New statutory material is underscored.

      SECTION 3. This Act shall take effect upon its approval and shall be repealed on July 1, 2014; provided that section 92F-11(b), Hawaii Revised Statutes, shall be reenacted in the form in which it read on the day before the effective date of this Act.

    They will get an earful, and you will get complete silence in return. That is the clear and direct intent of the law.

    So Butter…. what’s your spin on Linda Lingle’s confirmation that Obama was born at Kapiolani?

    • Posted May 10, 2010 at 1:57 am | Permalink | Reply

      I’ll simply note that she said Fukino stated that in her news release. YOu have only to look at the news release and find that Lingle couldn’t even find her rear end to wipe it if her life depended on it. It’s sad that anybody would give her comment any credibility when she couldn’t even get the basic fact regarding Fukino’s announcement straight.

      Regarding anybody’s claim that Obama was born at Kapiolani, it makes no sense that Obama would forge a certificate number and/or a “date filed” if he was born at Kapiolani. And for him to claim a Tuesday “date filed” blows the Kapiolani birth claim out of the water. Kapiolani delivered their BC’s to the state registrar’s office on Friday. Since Obama was born on a Friday after office hours and the Nordykes were born the next day, all 3 BC’s should have been delivered to the state registrar’s office the following Friday – Aug 11, 1961. The Nordykes’ were, as expected. Obama’s wasn’t.

      The basic data refutes any claim of a Kapiolani birth.

      Also, if Obama was born at Kapiolani, then it is foolish of him not to simply say that he signed the letter on White House stationery with raised seal – since it was almost certainly a forgery by Neil Abercrombie if Obama never signed it. Abercrombie has resigned from Congress but it would be hard for him to be Hawaii governor from a jail cell. Why won’t his friend, Obama, admit to having signed the statement (even if he didn’t) just to clear Abercrombie’s name?

        So it is your contention that the Republican Governor of Hawaii is lying.

        Why would she do that? Exactly?

        Either lying or ignorant; not sure which.

        If Obama is found to be ineligible Hawaii will lose a LOT!! of federal money AND the chance for Hawaiian sovereignty, which Lingle has wanted for a very long time.

        Federal aid including (among many, many other large federal grants awarded since Obama was sworn in) all the aid that Obama gave for the advancement of Pacific-Islanders (including native Hawaiians) via a presidential order shortly after Fukino made her statement that they have multiple birth records for Obama and at least one of them claims a Hawaii birth…

        Money can buy the world. At least in corrupt circles, and I think I’ve shown pretty clearly from the laws and rules the entire Hawaii government has broken that we’re dealing with massive corruption. That’s why this bugs me. Obama himself is a small side issue.
