Who is the real Brian Schatz? When did Schatz evolve from a Palin-type conservative to the liberal he claims to be today?
When running for the state House, he said: "I support traditional marriage. I support traditional family values. When family traditions and values are honored, society has fewer problems. Crime is reduced. Literacy rates are higher. People are healthier." Homophobic at its worst or pandering at its best. Little wonder he could not get re-elected to a fourth term in his then district.
In 2005 he declared that state campaigns should be 100 percent funded by taxpayers. He blasted candidates for taking out-of-state monies. Maui should know that the majority of his monies are coming from Mainland environmentalists and some Democratic senators. Who then, under and with Schatz, will control us or determine how we will live? What hypocrisy.
Was that all hyperbole to get votes then? You decide, Maui, whether leopards can change spots.
