Mazie Hirono

The former vice president and 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner is catching flak for supporting a prohibition on federal funding for abortions.
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) called the attorney general a liar, and told him to his face that he had "betrayed" Americans' trust.
His voice is gravelly. His suits are rumpled. And the Ohio Democrat *really* needs to smile more.
Sens. Tammy Duckworth and Mazie Hirono and Rep. Mark Takano have renewed efforts to prevent another atrocity like the incarceration of Japanese-Americans.
Mazie Hirono dropped the curse word on MSNBC's "All In With Chris Hayes."
"Women have had to put up with this bulls**t for way too long," Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) said.
“To say that she thinks that Dr. Ford thinks that she was assaulted, what is that?"
Hirono said the probe was “a fig leaf for the Republicans to hide behind.”
Addressing on CNN some people's belief that women make up sexual assault stories, the senator said, "It's not true."
Senators Kamala Harris walks out of the Senate Judiciary Committee because of what she calls a “failure of this body to do what it has always said it’s about.”
The senator from Hawaii did not hold back when discussing the sexual assault accusations against Brett Kavanaugh.
"Guess who’s perpetuating all of these kinds of actions? It’s the men in this country," Sen. Mazie Hirono said.
Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) asked him whether he had engaged in such behavior as a "legal adult."
Sen. Mazie Hirono said Trump's Supreme Court nominee was selected only to "protect, as we say in Hawaii, his own okole.”
"It's a legitimate area of inquiry," said the Democratic senator with a key role in the Supreme Court confirmation process.
"As you know, women and men all across the country have been speaking out about their experiences with sexual assault and harassment. And it started in Hollywood but we know that it occurs in many other settings."
"This corruption is hollowing out America's middle class & tearing down our democracy," Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted.
