Senate panel to release University of Hawaii probe

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 04:46 a.m. HST, Nov 19, 2012

A state Senate committee will announce the findings of its investigation into the University of Hawaii's operational and financial management.

The Senate Special Committee on Accountability began its probe after the athletic department lost $200,000 setting up a fundraiser concert.

The committee will hold a briefing on its findings and recommendations this afternoon at the state Capitol.

Committee Chairwoman Sen. Donna Mercado Kim says the panel hopes the university will seriously consider the recommendations.

A task force reporting to the Board of Regents last week announced its findings. The task force blamed the loss on a lack of judgment on the part of those involved in the financial transactions as well as their failure to take overall responsibility.

Too little, too late. The errant BOR has already caved in and we're stuck with a mostly inept President, Chancellor and AD. Time for the BOR to resign....en masse.

Correction Keith. We don't have an AD right now. We have a former AD collecting a check for a make work position.

We have an interim AD who wants to be AD but has taken his name out of contention claiming he doesn't want to be AD yet conjured up a coaches petition to draft him as AD. Sadly he has the head football coach as his point man. They both need to retire.

First thing she needs to do is fire the main inside manipulator Rockne Freitas. Taking advice from Freitas was one of her problems. She then needs to get her own house in order. Greenwood is not blameless in this matter. Things will not get better if she is allowed to sweep things under the rug.

They paid the consulant $50000 to tell us it was a lack of judgment. Quit analyzing it and just call it a scam.
