Actually, your guess is as good as ours. According to the investigative news non-profit organization ProPublica, none of Hawaii’s people in Washington – U.S. Senators Daniel Akaka and Dan Inouye or Congressmembers Colleen Hanabusa (1st District) and Mazie Hirono (2nd District)– have taken a public stance on the contentious Stop Online Piracy ACT (SOPA).
But you can click here for ProPublica’s breakdown of the four, including how much campaign money they’ve taken from pro- and anti-SOPA industries (Note: for the most part, the dollar amounts, which are relatively small, don’t really make predicting their votes any easier. Of course, Akaka apparently took no money from the movie, television and music industry, so he might be the strongest vote against SOPA of the four…)
They’re all Democrats, but they’re also all politicians, which means they’re still keeping their options open. Given that, we think you should call them up and tell ‘em what they should do. Just click on their names below, and you’ll go to ProPublica pages for each, which includes all the relevant campaign finance and contact information:
