Default Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter and His Wife Indicted

They used campaign funds for personal expenses and were especially egregious in their spending. Link

Quote:
Federal prosecutors contend that the Hunters repeatedly misrepresented what their expenses were for -- in one instance buying personal clothing at a golf course so that the purchase "could be falsely reported to the treasurer as 'balls for the wounded warriors,'" the indictment says.

The indictment also charges that Duncan Hunter facilitated the "theft of campaign funds" by directing his treasurer to obtain a campaign credit card for his wife at a time when she had no formal role.

Quote:
Prosecutors said Hunter also allowed the alleged theft to take place by "ignoring his campaign staff's multiple warnings about Margaret Hunter's improper use of campaign funds." He lashed out at aides, the indictment says, by accusing them of disloyalty and "trying to create some kind of paper trail on me."

Interesting side note… he was the second House Rep. to endorse Trump following Chris Collins, who you may recall was indicted last week on insider trading.

About time they got a Republican in California(although he hasn't been convicted yet). 5 Democrat state senators or assemblymen currently sitting in jail or on probation plus the first Democrat Mayor of San Diego.

You know, it's not just that he did it; lawmakers on the left have been caught doing similar things. It's how blatant and arrogant he seemed to be while doing it... and how ostentatious these activities were. This guy and his wife are likely going to jail after leading chants of "Lock her up" and "Drain the swamp."

There's a proverb in the Bible that states, "Whoever digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them." How apropos...

Of course he’s arrogant about it. It’s congress. They literally have a fund where they use tax payer money to pay off sexual harassment accusers and keep the congressman’s name secret. These people completely expect to be able to abuse their power with no consequences.

I know... they even promise to pay the money back, resign their seat after surmounting pressure, and then refuse to ultimately pay the money back.

Look at this guy... no remorse. Drain the swamp indeed.

Sounds like a guy who couldn’t control his wife’s spending.

Now he's blaming the "Deep State."
He knows the Trump base will believe any sh!t they are told.
