    Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi said that his county credit card being taken away is sufficient punishment for his history of using it for personal purchases.

The Attorney General’s Office confirmed Tuesday it will investigate Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi’s use of his county-issued purchasing card.

In a press release, Attorney General Doug Chin announced that at the request of Hawaii County Prosecuting Attorney Mitch Roth, the attorney general’s office will investigate facts related to Kenoi’s PCard use. 

"In discussions with the county prosecutor and Hawaii County Police Chief (Harry) Kubojiri, we have concluded an independent investigation may guard against an appearance of conflict under these circumstances," said Chin. "I appreciate Prosecutor Roth and Chief Kubojiri for their cooperation and support of the law enforcement community." 

The office said the investigation will determine whether to pursue or recommend criminal charges, administrative discipline or no further action.
