REP TOKIOKAʻS ATTEMPT TO BLOCK GMO LABELING BILL FAILS
Check out H. Doug Matsuoka's Youtube video entitled: REP TOKIOKAʻS ATTEMPT TO BLOCK GMO LABELING BILL FAILS! If there was ever any doubt about which side he is on- and to what lengths he will go to serve his biotech corporate masters- this is the smoking gun.
In it Rep Jimmy Tokioka tried to convince the rest of the committee the bill had been deferred earlier in the day (which would have killed the bill) while actually (as the video shows) the committee had been recessed due to lack of quorum. He essentially continues with his "that's my story and I'm sticking to it" attempt to block the GMO labeling bill- the one that was eventually passed by the full house- from a committee vote.
What a weasel.
