These are the busy final days of the Hawaii’s Legislature’s 2015 session, with the fate of numerous bills being decided. But that didn’t stop seven members of the House of Representatives from teaming up to hold a fundraising event Tuesday evening, according to documents filed with the state Campaign Spending Commission.

A $100 donation was requested of people attending the event at the Jade Dynasty restaurant in the Ala Moana Shopping Center, with the proceeds apparently divvied up by the lawmakers.

The participating legislators included Reps. Isaac Choy, Sharon Har, Ken Ito, Jo Jordan, Derek Kawakami, Calvin Say and James Tokioka

There are a lot of people paying close attention to a lot of bills right now, and many of those same people give money to lawmakers.
