State Rep. Faye Hanohano sat down for a 45-minute interview with the Big Island Chronicle over the weekend and faulted state House leaders, House communications staff and the news media for her recent troubles.
The questions, by Tiffany Edwards Hunt, a former reporter for West Hawaii Today and aide to former Hawaii County Councilwoman Emily Naeole, were largely sympathetic.
Hanohano, who was reprimanded last week by the House, has declined interview requests from the Star-Advertiser. She has done brief interviews with KITV and KHON where she explained that she has done nothing wrong and that her words have been misunderstood.
