PHOTOS: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Participates in Panel on Campaign Finance Reform and Ethics in Politics
This evening, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) participated in a panel on ‘Ethics in Politics’ sponsored by the University of Hawaiʻi William S. Richardson School of Law and Shidler College of Business. The panel explored various topics related to campaign finance reform, government ethics, money in politics, and more. The Congresswoman shared the panel with U.S. Senator Brian Schatz, State Senator Les Ihara, and Melissa Pavlicek. They discussed the many detrimental impacts of the Citizens United decision, how legislation like the Government By the People Act (H.R.20) which Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard has co-sponsored, would begin to provide much needed campaign finance reform. They also discussed political gridlock in Hawaiʻi and in Washington, the importance of voting and staying engaged in the democratic process, and more. The panel is part of an eight-part lecture series examining business and legal ethical dilemmas in the U.S. and beyond.
Following the public event, the Congresswoman and other panelists met with students at the Richardson School of Law and Shidler College of Business to further answer the students’ questions on ethics and government reform, and how the topics discussed earlier in the evening applied to their coursework on ethics in business and law.
