At the time, Hanabusa made a commitment to move into the district from her home in Ko Olina.
UPDATED She and her husband, John Souza, have listed the Ko Olina house for sale. Earlier this week, Hanabusa told Civil Beat that she had applied to rent a place, but the property manager selected another tenant. (Note: An earlier version of this story said Hanabusa’s application to purchase a condominium had been rejected.)
Hanabusa is considering running for the U.S Senate in 2012, for the seat Sen. Daniel Akaka is vacating. If she were to win a Senate seat, the location of her residence in a specific congressional district would become a moot issue.
The statement adds, “Souza and the couple’s beloved dog, Little, will remain in the home until it is sold. And while the apartment will be Hanabusa’s primary residence during the approximately one week a month that she is in Hawaii, she is also likely to spend some weekends in Ko Olina … visiting the dog.”
