    California congressman and wife face arraignment on charges

    California congressman and wife face arraignment on charges

    0





    The Associated Press23 Aug 2018SAN DIEGO (AP) — U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter and his wife Margaret faced arraignment Thursday in San Diego on charges they illegally used his campaign account for personal expenses.


    The California Republican and his wife were due in federal court to answer to an indictment alleging they used more than $250,000 to finance family trips to Italy and Hawaii, golf outings, school tuition, theater tickets and even fast food purchases.


    The indictment alleges they attempted to conceal the illegal spending in federal records.


    Even as the five-term incumbent was under investigation by the FBI, Hunter easily finished first by a 30-point margin in a June primary and established himself as a strong favorite to hold onto California’s strongly Republican 50th Congressional District in San Diego and Riverside counties, where his father held the seat for many years.


    Hunter’s attorney, Gregory A. Vega, has claimed there was politically motivated pressure to tarnish Hunter before the general election.


    In a statement, House Speaker Paul Ryan called the charges “deeply serious” and said Hunter will be removed from his committee assignments, pending resolution of the case. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Ryan should call on Hunter to resign.


    The California secretary of state’s office said there is no process in the elections code for Hunter to remove his name from the ballot, and there can be no write-in candidates for the November election.


    The indictment alleges the couple dipped into campaign cash for years to bankroll their lifestyle, while their household budget was awash in red ink. The spending ranged from the banal to the lavish, from movie tickets to a $6,288.74 family vacation at a resort in Hawaii.


    “The Hunters spent substantially more than they earned,” the indictment said. “They overdrew their bank account more than 1,100 times in a 7-year period resulting in approximately $37,761 in ‘overdraft’ and ‘insufficient funds’ bank fees.”

    Congressman charged with funds misuse suggests wife to blame

    The Associated Press24 Aug 20181SAN DIEGO (AP) — Indicted Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter is suggesting that his wife is to blame for misuse of campaign funds after the couple was indicted on using up to $250,000 in campaign funds for trips, clothing purchases and school tuition
    Hunter in an interview with Fox News on Thursday after the couple pleaded not guilty to illegally using the campaign account for personal expenses said his campaign made mistakes and that his wife was his campaign manager.
    Hunter had previously said a year ago that his campaign would stop paying his wife, Margaret, as the spending was investigated.
    Hunter defended some of the spending, saying trips paid for with campaign funds were for fundraising
    Hunter and his wife arrived and left separately from federal court to enter their pleas.

    Such a shame, just like his dad before him, Rep. Duncan Hunter is a player on our team!
