State Ethics Commission director fired

HONOLULU (AP) - The state Ethics Commission has fired its executive director, Dan Mollway. The commission said Wednesday that the dismissal was based in part on its investigation that raised concerns about Mollway's use of sick leave and his work habits.

Mollway says he didn't believe his firing was justified, based on his work performance. His attorney is contemplating legal action against the commission.
