|Hawaii||Brian Minaai||Ross Segawa Debra Kawaoka Clifford Uwainewas||M||1982||Democratic primary||D||1983-02||Registration fraud||1||Brian Minaai pleaded* guilty to a misdemeanor in the 1982 Democrat primary. Prosecutors found that 27 participated in a scheme to illegally register Honolulu voters in order to boost Democrat candidate Ross Segawa, a student in the University law school, into the District 19 state House seat that encompassed Manoa, where the university’s main campus is located. The students, including some working in the Legislature or attending the university’s law school, were caught when Segawa’s opponent noticed that some of Segawa’s youthful supporters claimed they lived at the Arcadia Retirement Residence on their voter registration forms. They recruited people from outside the 19th district – a total of 32 known names – and used false addresses to register them on the 19th district rolls.||*Plea deal: Criminal record to be wiped clean within a year||http://www.hawaiireporter.com/university-of-hawaii-procurement-officer-involved-...||http://www.nytimes.com/1983/02/13/us/around-the-nation-hawaii-state-senator-accu...|
