kubo should keep his job. he is one of the very few hawaii lawmakers worth their keep.

kubu is a fair and ethical person who has the law in mind when he makes decisions. he has nothing but integrity and has consistently worked earnestly in a very tough position.

i rarely commend anyone, especially in hawaii government, which is big time corrupt. Ed Kubo is one I would commend....what a shame if he loses his job well done over politics. what a loss for hawaii if he leaves.

some, in the corrupt local government want him out,(and you know who you are!). he is on their case and some may be indicted as a result of his effort.

kubo needs to stay or hawaii falls down ANOTHER level into the savage anarchy that it's journey is taking it today.

Seems like he's doing a good job so far. However, I went to one of his dinner speeches at Alan Wong's Pineapple room and I was as bored as he was. Food was good though but I had to stop by Jack in the Box because they feed you like a rabbit there.

Kubo is not a "hawaii lawmaker". He is the "U.S. Attorney". That renders are your other comments as irrevelent.

How is it that someone from another state knows that Hawaii's government is "big time corrupt."?

Anyway, with regard to Kubo....he knew he served at the pleasure of the president. If he is really good, he can be moved to another position within the government so he can live out his one year and get his pension.

He knew the job specs before he took the appointment.

8 years as U.S. Attorney qualifies Kubo for retirement benefits??? NO WONDER THE GOVERNMENT IS BROKE AND GETTING MORE BROKE BY THE SECOND!!! Ex public servants AT ALL LEVELS (that's from the local councilman up to and including the president himself, folks) deserve NADA for pension benefits...that's how the system would rid itself of career public "servants" (LOL).'Nuff said...

perfect hawaiian english...can someone translate what it is trying to say?

"How is it that someone from another state knows that Hawaii's government is "big time corrupt."?"

i am sure that i am more hawaiian than you are, having been born there, grown up there, and serving the state there for many years. everyone in law enforcement knows that hawaii is corrupt.....your former hpd officers jump ship and share their stories of corruption in hawaii all of the country.

you don't really believe it is a secret do you?

by the way, start your taro patches. you will be selling food by the side of the road soon enough.
hawaii has sewn seeds that it will be reaping with many upcoming years of well deserved pain.

He should keep his job at least for one year. A condition of his continued employment would be that he omplete his investigation of Bob Awana and his shenanigans in Guam. He might lose his nomination from the Hawaii bench but at least he would save his federal retirement.

HPD would certainly know how corrupt Hawaii is, seeing as how they are the center of corruption.

As for Kubo? Fire him.

it is apparent your nom de plume is an oxymoron. the article indicates that kubo was an assistant us attorney before being appointed by bush and that he needs to work one more year to earn pension benefits, not just the eight years he served admirably as the us attorney for hawaii.

hey david from irvine, probably the hpd is corrupt thats why they think everyone else is.kubo should do the honorable thing and resign but thats what we have come to expect from a republican and being born and raised in hawaii does not make you hawaiian by birth or blood

Ed Kubo was an Assistant US Attorney before becoming US Attorney. He had been in the federal system for almost 20 years.

Kubo has been a huge disappointment in fighting crime. Let him retire to Lanai.

It's time to say "Aloha" Ed. I voted for a "change". Change means you gotta to go. Change of political parties ruling. It's time for the Democrats to mislead us now.
Ed, you ask us to respect the system and now you disrespect the system. Power hungry? Give it up Ed and do the right thing and resign.

Oh Please! read the story better. He was already in the federal government when President Bush appointed him as the US Attorney. He needs to wait until President Elect Obama makes a decision whether to have all political cppointees submit their resignations. I remember Clinton insisted on having all former appointees submit resignations but President Bush did not. He let many Clinton appointees keep their jobs. Kubo has been an excellent US Attorney and he should be allowed to keep his job.
