David Arakawa is the executive director of the Land Use Research Foundation and lobbied on its behalf between 2008 and 2014 without registering himself or the foundation, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported.
Also, according to an Ethics Commission report issued Monday, neither Arakawa nor the foundation filed lobbying expenditure and contribution reports during that period as required by law.
According to the commission, Arakawa appeared to have "genuinely misunderstood the law" and fully cooperated with commission staff, immediately registering as a lobbyist when told of the delinquencies. Arakawa is a former Honolulu corporation counsel.
Arakawa declined to comment to the newspaper and did not immediately respond Thursday to Associated Press requests for comment.
Arakawa said Ching resigned from the foundation Jan. 29 after serving as a vice president since at least 2006.

That was critical, says David Arakawa, director of the Land Use Research Foundation of Hawaii, because it clarified that Important Agricultural Lands law is in fact not primarily about land, but about farming.
Earlier this month, Arakawa, who is part of the city's Agricultural Development Task Force, called for the city to begin work on mapping the IAL in anticipation of next summer's deadline on voluntary designation.
Going forward, Arakawa and Nalo Farms owner Dean Okimoto both say that IAL is long overdue, but caution that the designation of land will not in itself revitalize farming in Hawaii.
Arakawa actually points to Okimoto, who is on leave as head of the Hawaii Farm Bureau, as an example of how strapped farmers truly are.
