Maui candidate Kaniela Ing fined
WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) — Democratic South Maui House candidate Kaniela Ing has been fined for what is being described as “simple mistakes.”
The Hawaii Campaign Spending Commission fined Ing $375 on Thursday after getting complaints from the Hawaii Republican Party.
The fines are for failing to report expenditures for ads placed before the Aug. 11 primary in The Maui News, failing to file a timely loan document and failing to file a notice of a Sept. 5 fundraiser at Maui Meadows.
Gary Kam, the commission’s general counsel, described the infractions as “simple mistakes.”
Ing has 20 days to appeal.
