Hawaii Is Very Naughty !!

HI Department of Health refuses OIP’s request
THAT THEY DISCLOSE PUBLIC DOCUMENTS BY DEC. 21st
by John Charlton
(Dec. 22, 2009) — By now it is 5:00 pm in Honolulu, Hawaii. And the offices of the Department of Health are closed. So The Post & Email can go public with the fact that the Department is in open violation of Hawaii Law regarding the request made by its editor, Mr. John Charlton, on Sept. 27, 2009, and which on Dec. 8, 2009, the Office of Information Practices warned them of the violation and demanded they respond to the request by Dec. 21st.
The request I made did not regard Barack Hussein Obama’s vital records. And that is what makes Dr. Fukino’s refusal to respond to it all the more revealing.
What my request did refer to, was documentation which Hawaii Law clearly indicates must be disclosed to the public; documentation, which regards the manner in which the Department of Health conducts its public business.
The UIPA request of September 27, 2009
Here is the noxious request, that the citizen “dared” file with Janice Okubo, on Sept. 27th:
Dear Mrs. Okubo,
I am writing to request some information in accord with Hawaii Rev. Statutes §92F-12
§92F-12 Disclosure required. (a) Any other provision in this chapter to the contrary notwithstanding, each agency shall make available for public inspection and duplication during regular business hours:
(1) Rules of procedure, substantive rules of general applicability, statements of general policy, and interpretations of general applicability adopted by the agency;
(2) Final opinions, including concurring and dissenting opinions, as well as orders made in the adjudication of cases, except to the extent protected by section 92F-13(1); (snip)

OIP DEMANDS DOH TO REPLY BY DEC. 21st
On December 8th, the Office for Information Practices put the Department of Health on notice, with this letter:
Dear Ms. Okubo:
The Office of Information Practices (“OIP”) has received a request for assistance from Mr. John Charlton with respect to his request made under part II of the Uniform Information Practices Act (Modified), chapter 92F, Hawaii Revised Statutes (“HRS”) (“UIPA”), for access to documents pertaining to operations and procedures. Mr. Charlton has indicated that he made a written request to the Department of Health (“DOH”) dated September 27, 2009, and that he has not yet received a response from DOH. Copies of Mr. Charlton’s request to OIP and his record request to the DOH are enclosed for your information. (snip)
This request from OIP was made by Linden Joesting.
I had thought Joesting was no longer with OIP? Where did I get that idea from? But this article is so interesting in terms of further proving that Hawaii is blatantly ignoring it’s own laws. The more proof provided to the world of this the stronger every case pending against obama becomes. I know I’m expressing this in a very simplified way :), but I find it encouraging because Hawaii has publicly purported to be doing everything according to it’s law and the proof to the contrary is lovely to have.
So listeners, hop on over to The Post & Email and read the full article and don’t forget to read the comments!!
