I’ve been mentioning on a lot of different blogs about some of the ramifications that this Internet Scandal that Councilman Yagong has pretty much triggered.
I believe Mayor Kenoi himself may be in a bit of hot water.
His Domain clearly states that it’s registered under a county email address as well as the mailing address for the Hawaii County Building:

1 Candidate walk-throughs on County premises are strictly prohibited
2 County email accounts must not be used for campaign purposes
3 The distribution of campaign literature on County premises is strictly prohibited
4 The sale or distribution of fundraiser or other tickets even
complimentary ones on County premises is strictly prohibited
So do you think Mr. Kenoi will punish himself? Is it also considered distribution from a county building if he registered the building as well?
Hawai’i County Mayor Billy Kenoi has acknowledged that his office is investigating “very serious” and possibly illegal abuse of Internet access on county computers.
Kenoi said the investigation goes back to January 2008 and includes the potentially illegal use of county computers for political activity, as well as other serious abuses.
From what I can tell… Last Updated April 16, 2008 would fall under that time period.
