Samoa News Editorial: Thank you Senator Tulifua Tini Lam Yuen

rhonda@samoanews.com

The recent brouhaha about Sen. Tulifua Tini Lam Yuen voicing on the Senate floor what ‘everyone’ has alleged goes on in the Fono, as well as the government — the behind door deals, the pointed investigations into pet peeves, votes on behalf of friends and family, etc. is an interesting turn of events in this local campaign 2012 season.
