KITV-TV revealed the "Honolulu Liquor Commission spent $580,000 on investigations and lawsuits about corruption, workplace violence and sexual harassment" over the most recent three-year period -- 20 percent of its annual budget. The commission paid thousands for lawyers to protect employees accused of misconduct. Also, "at the same time, the commission failed to collect hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines from bars and nightclubs, and does not have investigators on duty seven nights a week." A former whistleblower who testified before a grand jury about the situation was threatened and subsequently forced to leave Hawaii; another employee revealed that workers had been "openly threatened with harm or even death, if they talk to the media or the feds or any other investigation."
