Governor apologizes for letter comments

By 67AM KPUA News

Governor Neil Abercrombie has apologized for casting doubt on a letter from U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye that urged the governor to name Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa as his successor.

Abercrombie told the Los Angeles Times in an interview last week that whether the letter "could be construed as Senator Inouye's dying wish let me put it this way is problematic." Abercrombie instead appointed Brian Schatz his lieutenant governor at the time to replace Inouye.

He did not dispute that the letter reflected the Senators preference for Hanabusa.
