Osborne named to oversee election complaints

HONOLULU (AP) - Assistant U.S. Attorney Leslie E. Osborne Jr. has been named to oversee the handling of complaints of election fraud and voting rights abuses in Hawaii for next Tuesday's general election.

In making the announcement Wednesday, U.S. Attorney Florence T. Nakakuni said every citizen must be able to vote without interference or discrimination and to have that vote counted without it being stolen because of fraud.

She says the U.S. Department of Justice will act promptly and aggressively to protect the integrity of the election process.

In addition, the FBI will have agents available to receive allegations of election fraud and other election abuses on election day.

Those who know of discrimination or election fraud are asked to contract authorities.
