With little more than a month before the 1996 elections, the mayoral candidates were invited to a televised debate sponsored by KHON Channel 2 and the Honolulu Advertiser. Candidates Frank Fasi and Arnold Morgado agreed to participate but Jeremy declined. The debate went on anyway without Jeremy. Immediately after the debate, Channel 2 News anchor Joe Moore did a lengthy one-on-one interview with Jeremy. Fasi and Morgado were outraged, as was the public. In spite of hundreds of complaints from viewers, Jeremy, Joe Moore and Channel 2 News executives believed they had done nothing wrong. Honolulu Weekly 9-25-1996
