Two Former Hawaii Lawmakers Plead Guilty To Accepting Bribes – Two former Hawaii lawmakers who allegedly took part in a bribery scheme to benefit a wastewater company pled guilty last month to felony charges brought by the US Justice Department after a years-long investigation. The felony indictments stemmed from the former legislators’ failure to disclose the receipt of tens of thousands of dollars in cash payments and other gifts on mandatory annual gift filings filed with the state.
