Office of Hawaiian Affairs CEO survives clash

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The CEO of the Office of Hawaiian Affairs has emerged vindicated and relieved after an all-day board meeting that had him worried for his job.

Kamanaopono Crabbe and OHA's board of trustees met for more than six hours Monday behind closed doors.

Crabbe and the trustees had been tangled in an awkward public spat over a letter he sent on May 5 to Secretary of State John Kerry.

In the letter, Crabbe noted the U.S. government had acknowledged that the U.S.-backed overthrow of the Hawaii Kingdom in 1893 was illegal.

Crabbe and the trustees emerged after 5 p.m. to say they had reconciled. They then sang the official state song, "Hawaii Ponoi," before an emotional gathering of dozens of supporters outside the board chambers.
