Caldwell’s Daughter Burns One Down

Whoops.

That might be what Honolulu mayoral candidate Kirk Caldwell's 18-year-old daughter Maya is saying now after photos of her burning a Ben Cayetano campaign sign wound up on local television.

Cayetano, Hawaii’s former governor, is running against Maya Caldwell's dad in the Nov. 6 election.

According to this report from Hawaii News Now, photos posted to Instagram show Maya Caldwell setting fire to one of Cayetano’s campaign signs with a lighter. A friend who is with her in the pictures is holding a bong.

Caldwell told the TV station he was going to have a long talk with his daughter Friday as she heads to Massachusetts for her first year of college.

He said he also apologized to Cayetano, who seemed to take the incident in stride according to his statement to Hawaii News Now.

"We’ve all done foolish things when we were young, and I’m sure she regrets what she did," Cayetano told the TV station.
