Activist charges Calvin Say not living in the district that he represents

In an email widely circulated on May 4, 2006, Big Island activist Jack Kelly said that he had filed a complaint with the City Clerk of the City and County of Honolulu charging that Speaker of the House Calvin Say has lived at a residence in Makiki, House District 26, for the past 15 years with his wife and two sons although he represents Palolo, House District 20.

The text of the complaint, also circulating via email, is here (pdf).

Although Kelly states “Continuing to serve in office may render any bill now being considered void and invalid," it's not clear what the consequences of these charges, if proven, would be. Does Kelly have standing to bring the charges? Will they be investigated as he requests?

If true, would Say merely have to move back to Palolo? Would he be charged with some crime? Would he lose his seat?

Stay tuned, but I think it's too early to get excited.
