HONOLULU (AP) — In a story April 21 about Hawaii state representative’s college degree, The Associated Press reported erroneously the representative’s last name in two instances. He is Kaniela Ing, not Ige.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Hawaii candidate’s page lists degree he didn’t complete
The LinkedIn page of a Hawaii state representative who is running for Congress lists him as having a master’s degree though he never completed the program

HONOLULU (AP) — The LinkedIn page of a Hawaii state representative who is running for Congress lists him as having a master’s degree though he never completed the program.
Hawaii News Now reports Kaniela Ing’s page on the social media site used mainly for professional networking shows him with a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Hawaii.
The Democratic state representative says he never claimed to have completed the degree and it was listed by mistake.
Ing says he entered the information in 2011 under an expected completion date before he had dropped out of the graduate program. He says he plans to correct the entry.
Ing is running for the seat that will be vacated by U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa.
