Lui certainly sounds biased [but, seriously, what good investigator doesn't cheer privately when his mark goes down?], yet the stories have passages like these that go by without comment:Those included a report that Lui lobbied a senator to vote against Young's confirmation.As a result of Lui's bias against Young, Mollway said he will not turn over his report to a special Senate-House committee investigating allegations that bureau employees received gifts, trips to Las Vegas and hotel upgrades from companies using the bureau's services.The Ethics Commission paid Lui $14,860 for work performed from February to May, according to Mollway.Those documents were to include a report prepared by Hilton Lui, an independent investigator hired by the Ethics Commission to conduct its probe into the bureau.Lui, a former FBI agent, also was appointed by the legislative committee to serve as its lead investigator.The $14,860 paid to Mr. Lui was public money, so the work Mr. Lui did is state property.Even if Lui is biased, state property is not subject to the unilateral editorial whim of Mr. Mollway.The report should be handed over as the subpoena requires and the contents of the report should be reviewed by the Comiittee with consideration for the allegations against Lui.

Allegations surface that Ethics Commission investigator Hilton Lui was biased.This, more or less, is what happened to former state Ethics Commission investigator Hilton Lui.Last week, when Lui was out of the country, it became public that a letter was sent on June 28 by Hawai‘i State Ethics Commission Executive Director Daniel Mollway to the joint Senate-House Investigative Committee alleging that Lui's report on the Bureau of Conveyances was biased.The commission hired Lui to do the snooping for them.After Young's ouster from the DLNR in April, the state Senate decided it would be a good idea to get into the sleuthing business itself.The man who would be their Sherlock Holmes?Why, Hilton Lui, who had recently finished his duties with the Ethics Commission.The funny thing is at least one legislator, Sen.Lorraine Inouye, was aware that Lui, who was supposed to be conducting an unbiased investigation of the Bureau, had lobbied against the former DLNR head back in April.The reason Inouye knew Lui had urged a state senator to vote against the ex-DLNR chair?She was that senator.Now according to a Honolulu Star-Bulletin report, Inouye says that at the time she wasn't aware Lui was investigating the Bureau for the Ethics Commission-not a particularly good admission for a state senator to make.You would think that she would have heard about the investigation in the halls of the State Capitol sometime before her meeting with Lui.That said, we'll give her the benefit of the doubt.While pleading ignorance can be an excuse, Inouye's decision to wait until June 27 to speak with Mollway about Lui's alleged lobbying is strange.Coupled with the fact that these allegations made the papers while Lui was out of town and you have a genuine mystery to solve, one where the motivations of Inouye and perhaps others are suspect.Why did it take so long to find out about Lui's alleged bias?

Hilton Lui, a private investigator, resigned in a letter to the committee dated Monday.Lui had done investigatory work on the bureau for the state Ethics Commission.Mollway has told the committee it was improper for Lui to meet with a state senator to oppose Young's confirmation and to cheer in the Senate gallery when it became clear Young would not be confirmed.Lui, in his resignation letter, said he was present at a meeting between bureau workers and state Sen.Lui also said that any expressions in the gallery during the Young confirmation debate did not violate his duties as an investigator.Lui said he stood by his work on the bureau for the Ethics Commission and believes the committee will find his work was not biased, tainted or inaccurate."Because I do not want any allegations against me to affect the most important work of your committee, I believe that it is best for me to resign so that any factual determinations and conclusions you may reach as the result of your investigation will not be tainted in any manner," Lui wrote.Several senators had said privately that Lui would likely have to step down because Mollway's accusations could leave a cloud over the committee's investigation.Lui was traveling out of the country when Mollway's criticisms first surfaced in the news media, and Tokuda and others wanted to give Lui the opportunity to respond.Lui was traveling out of the country when Mollway's criticisms first surfaced in the news media, and Tokuda and others wanted to give Lui the opportunity to respond."We appreciate Mr. Lui's utmost concern for the work of the committee," Tokuda said.

Hilton Lui, a private investigator, conducted the work on the bureau for the Ethics Commission and has since been hired by the committee as an investigator.Mollway claims Lui was biased against Peter Young, the former director of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources, which oversees the bureau.Committee leaders have said they want to talk to Lui, who is traveling, before making a decision.One Republican on the committee, state Rep."Mr. Lui is traveling outside the country, so we will wait for him to return and give him a chance to present his side of the story," state Sen.
