Case to work at Outrigger; likely to end political career
Former U.S. Rep. Ed Case says he's going to work for Outrigger Enterprises Group and will likely end his political career.
Case sent supporters an email Friday saying he will be senior vice president and chief legal officer for the Hawaii-based hotel chain.
He says he won't be a candidate for public office so long as he's with Outrigger. He says this "likely ends any further political career" because he hopes to be at Outrigger for a long time.
The Democrat served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2002 to 2007. He's been an attorney in private practice since he unsuccessfully challenged then-Sen. Daniel Akaka in the Democratic primary in 2006.
Last year, Case lost to Mazie Hirono in the Democratic primary to succeed Akaka in the Senate.
