Corruption, Five Affairs, and Duncan Hunter

Duncan Hunter, Republican from California is on a sinking ship. Accused of misspending a quarter of a million dollars of campaign funds on personal expenses along with his wife Margaret, both are facing sixty charges, but there’s more.

The indictment apparently makes reference to “personal relationships” with at least five individuals.

Hunter’s attorney said prosecutors have photo evidence of his affairs. Now granted, people aren’t prosecuted for affairs anymore even though many states, including Florida, still has the statute on the books. However, if he was paying for drinks, hotel rooms, and Uber rides with campaign funds for what is personal expenses then yes, that is a violation of campaign finance laws.

Of course, Hunter likes to fall on the “fake news” and “deep state” theories to defend himself. Before that, he blamed any discrepancies in spending on his wife. He won’t be winning husband or father of the year awards anytime soon.

 “When I went away to Iraq in 2003, the first time, I gave her power of attorney. She handled my finances throughout my entire military career, and that continued on when I got into Congress. She was also the campaign manager, so whatever she did, that’ll be looked at too, I’m sure, but I didn’t do it.” -Fox News Interview.

Hunter did say later leave my “wife out of it.” Okay, but you brought her in- in the first place.
