Hawaii stated plans to take fire victims' homes with eminent domain. That requires market value compensation. Then the governor alarmingly barred private offers that'd give victims bargaining power.

Instead of trying to connect the dots with conspiracy theories, let's try something new to get justice for Maui Fire Victims:
Let's donate DIRECTLY to a whistleblower who leaks proof of foul play. Use the button below to start a post with #MauiFire #factbid, edit with your donation pledge, and post. Within 15 minutes it will be added on the list below for potential whistleblowers, who can 'claim' by posting the evidence and donation instructions. All bids and claims for #MauiFire are below. Bidders can donate directly to whistleblowers when satisfied.

To promote this novel concept in citizen activism and show how it can effectively hold powerful institutions accountable, on Sept 1 all posts on X with a pledge amount and #MauiFire #factbid will be sent to RandomPicker to select one at random to receive a $200 award. There's no catch, no ulterior motive, FactBid is non-commercial, ultruistic, self-funded and any donations go to whistleblowers directly. FactBid receives no revenue nor accepts donations.

It seems this happens a lot in Hawaii as the Institute of Justice wrote: "Hawaii received a D- for its eminent domain laws.... Communities targeted by eminent domain for private development are much more likely to be communities of color [with] lower levels of income."

With this week's very publicized example, let's send a message that we will come together to root out corruption. The Maui victims need hard facts now--not in 10 years after court battles following the loss of their homes.

Does Hawaii's new law prevent or perpetrate a land grab from Maui fire victims?
