TUPOLA PUT A CLOSET DEMOCRAT IN CHARGE OF THE REPUBLICAN LEGISLATIVE CAUCUS: Hawaii’s GOP Minority Caucus at the State Legislature is out of control. Support for Obamacare, Sanctuary Cities, Higher Taxes, Rail Project Bailouts, Wasteful Budgets, etc. And they are the ones who are supposed to be DIFFERENT from the Democrats.
In January 2017, Andria Tupola voted to keep progressive Beth Fukumoto in charge of the GOP caucus as its “Minority Leader” for the next two years. As if Tupola’s judgement wasn’t bad enough, Tupola voted two weeks later to get rid of Fukumoto. With the vote of just three people (including herself), Tupola took Fukumoto’s place as minority leader and spent the next two years putting up ZERO FIGHT against the ruling Democrats.
In fact, just like her predecessor Fukumoto, Tupola became Queen of the RINO’s and continued voting with Democrats the overwhelming majority of the time; supporting terrible policies which harm everyday taxpayers in Hawaii.
Knowing how terrible Fukumoto’s leadership had been, Tupola still supported Fukumoto at a crucial moment following the 2016 elections. Eventually, eager-to-please Tupola joined Fukumoto in actively ‘brown-nosing’ the Democrat agenda in shocking moves to savage taxpayers with massive giveaways to public worker unions, tax hikes, wasteful spending, bloated bureaucracies, giving driver’s licenses to tens of thousands of illegal aliens so they can take jobs and housing from Hawaiians, expanding welfare to every resident of Hawaii, and more.
Tupola’s idea of leadership is surrendering to Democrats by being a clone of Beth Fukumoto. The more things changed, the more they stayed the same. Auwe!
TUPOLA VOTED FOR THIS BILL MAKING CLOSET DEMOCRAT BETH FUKUMOTO THE GOP LEADER:
