Abercrombie tripped himself up with his ‘furloughs’ scam. This signals a long four years ahead for this despicable crook.
It was all fake and it cost the General Fund $10M dollars. Governor Neil Abercrombie’s “first gubernatorial action” to abolish furloughs did no such thing. In fact Abercrombie’s December 6 release undid parts of a May 25 agreement between Governor Lingle and the BoE/DoE/HSTA which DID abolish instructional day furloughs. But politicians and every single media outlet in Hawaii went along with the scam.
