New Ethics Law Still Doesn't Stop Congressional Freebies

The fundraiser for Lungren was held at sundown on the private terrace of the lavish Hapuna Suite, which the hotel brochure describes as an "ultra-exclusive 8,000 square foot private estate" with two levels, a private butler and a private swimming pool. Lungren raised about $20,000 in a two-hour time span from the industry lobbyists and executives in attendance. He says all aspects of the trip were done in full compliance with the new ethics law.

Sen. Inouye's fundraiser was a luncheon affair which raised $ 37,950, according to Inouye's office and campaign finance records recently filed.
