With the failed
1998confirmation by the Hawaiokinai State Senate of popular sitting attorney general Margery Bronster, as political payback for her actions to reform the corrupt Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate whose trustees were friends of various powerful legislators, many Hawaiokinai residents called for the right to elect the attorney general. Several attempts failed to create the constitutional amendment.
