Two snips for you, but better to click over and read Cheating allegations at Capitol during same-sex marriage public hearing (Hawaii News Now, 11/4/2013).
Suspicious activity during Saturday night's public hearing on a controversial same-sex marriage bill has prompted officials to change their procedures.
Capitol officials confirm they're investigating who took a list of registered names and numbers from the check-in desk Saturday.
Officials say it's unclear how many people may have been involved. Testifiers will now have to present a photo ID when they initially check-in and right before they testify at the podium.
New Hope Metro's Senior Pastor Elwin Ahu posted this message on his Facebook page Sunday:
If you organize people from your churches who can stay at the capitol all day and "read testimony" on behalf of others, that may be a start.
I’ve omitted a lot that is important. Please read the original report at the link above.
