The religious right’s scheme to take the governorship of Hawaii hangs by a thread…
Hawaii has an open primary system and in a story I wrote last April 22, 2010, Christian Right Claims Both 2010 Hawaii Gubernatorial Candidates I predicted exactly what is now happening–an effort to convince evangelical Christians in Hawaii who are registered as Republicans to cross over in the Democratic Party primary this coming Saturday, September 18, and vote for Democratic Party gubernatorial candidate Mufi Hannemann.
Former mayor of Honolulu Hannemann, as I detailed in an extended April 2010 two part series (part 1, part 2), is (along with Republican candidate for governor Duke Aiona) tied to a virulently antigay, eliminationist stream of the international Christian right that’s seeking to place its people in positions of political power.
But last week an angry email from the Hawaii GOP head that leaked out to the press and gained national media attention has thrown a wrench into that movement’s plot to place one of its chosen politicians in the Hawaii governor’s office.
