Rep. Cabanilla hit with $500 fine over campaign finance reports

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 09:47 p.m. HST, Nov 18, 2013

State Rep. Rida Cabanilla has been fined $500 by the state Campaign Spending Commission for filing an inaccurate or false campaign-finance report.

Cabanilla held a fundraiser in March but reported raising no money when she filed her campaign-finance report for the first half of the year. She subsequently reported raising $5,830.

Cabanilla was named House majority floor leader in October after Rep. Karen Awana resigned the leadership post after facing campaign-finance violations.

The Campaign Spending Commission imposed the fine at its meeting last Wednesday.

I'm sure it was an oversight... just like missing the marriage equality vote must have been.

The $500 fine imposed on Cabanilla is nothing more than a slap on the little finger which somehow caused her to raise her middle finger at the state Campaign Spending Commission. The fine should have been equal to the amount of money she failed to report.

I agree and all this wrong doing by politicians should be placed in their campaign brochures to let voters know what kind of person will be in charged of tax payers earned dollars if elected.

Interesting how people are more forgiving of people that think differently than people that don't think at all.

Campaign finance violations appears to permeate State House Democrats in leadership positions. They cannot seem to get that correct so it's no wonder that meaningful legislation ever gets done.

Last March, I received a flyer from her asking for input on cameras at intersections/red lights. I sent her an email (address was on the flyer) with my concerns, and I still have not gotten a reply.

How can she report raising no money at a fundraiser? Even if she sold one plate lunch, that's about $5.00.
