Clean Elections gaining support in Hawaii

Voter Owned Hawaii aka Hawaii Clean Elections has made awesome strides this summer. It's a time between legislative sessions when many activist groups take a vacation, but not these folks.

Among other things, they have obtained pledges from incumbents and candidates to support a comprehensive public funded financing bill in the 2007 session. The list is quite long, and they're not done yet. To see current signatures, go here.

Maine, Arizona and Connecticut have clean elections laws. Hawaii could be next. Given how cheaply some of our legislators sell out to special interests, we could really use one.
