Faleomavaega Fails Again
In response to Faleomavaega's plea to the Government of Chile not to remove protesters occupying a hotel over traditional land ownership issues on Rapa Nui, the Government of Chile promptly evicted the protesters. The outcome is nothing new for Faleomavaega, who has been on the losing end of scores of causes over his 22+ years in Congress. What is different this time is that he dragged Hawaii Sen. Dan Akaka (D) into the issue, so now the both of them have gone down in flames. And so it goes.
