According to the Department of Justice on August 21, 2018, “U.S. Rep. Duncan D. Hunter and his wife, Margaret E. Hunter, were indicted by a federal grand jury today on charges that they converted more than $250,000 in campaign funds to pay for personal expenses and filed false campaign finance records with the Federal Election Commission.
Right-wing extremist Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter is expected to plead guilty

Later today around 10:00AM, right-wing Republican extremist Congressman Duncan D. Hunter of Alpine, CA, is expected to plead guilty to charges of campaign finance violations, after repeatedly denying all charges, and claiming that he is a victim of a partisan witch-hunt.

It appears that whenever right-wing extremist Republicans are indicted or guilty of wrong doing, they are always claiming that it is a witch-hunt that is taking place. This includes the orange haired prick at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue that has been claiming it’s a witch-hunt, in regards to an impeachment inquiry he is facing.

According to the Department of Justice on August 21, 2018, “U.S. Rep. Duncan D. Hunter and his wife, Margaret E. Hunter, were indicted by a federal grand jury today on charges that they converted more than $250,000 in campaign funds to pay for personal expenses and filed false campaign finance records with the Federal Election Commission. 
 
A 48-page indictment details scores of instances beginning in 2009 and continuing through 2016 in which the Hunters illegally used campaign money to pay for personal expenses that they could not otherwise afford.  The purchases included family vacations to Italy, Hawaii, Phoenix, Arizona, and Boise, Idaho; school tuition; dental work; theater tickets; and domestic and international travel for almost a dozen relatives. The Hunters also spent tens of thousands of dollars on smaller purchases, including fast food, movie tickets, golf outings, video games, coffee, groceries, home utilities, and expensive meals.”

According to CNN, “While Hunter has maintained that the couple's spending on the campaign credit card was an error, his wife has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. In June she pleaded guilty to conspiring with her husband to "knowingly and willingly" convert campaign funds for personal use.

In the 22-page plea, she acknowledged that the couple spent more than $200,000 in campaign funds for the personal enjoyment of their family and friends, including for family vacations, private school tuition, school lunches and routine household items. Her agreement to cooperate with prosecutors was an ominous development for the congressman, underscoring both the legal and political jeopardy that he is facing.”

According to rules with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) using campaign funds for personal use is prohibited, and after Hunter’s wife pleaded guilty and started singing like a canary to the Feds to save her ass, Duncan Hunter decided it was time to make a change of plea from not guilty, to guilty.

According to Wikipedia, it appears that Duncan Hunter is a genuine loser when it comes to his voting record, or telling the truth.

Additionally according to Rolling Stone, in addition to running a racist bigoted smear campaign against his opponent, it appears that Duncan Hunter may have been a war criminal; “The congressman, who served three tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan with the Marines, has lately made news by declaring that he took photos of the bodies of dead combatants, and that his unit had likely killed “hundreds of civilians” in Iraq.”

And according to Law and Crime and released documents, Congressman Duncan Hunter is a habitual philanderer who let his campaign foot the bill for entertaining multiple mistresses.

Asides from having a wife named Margaret who flipped on him to save her own ass, Congressman Duncan Hunter has two daughters named Elizabeth and Sarah, including a son named Hunter who may all be wondering at this point what the hell is going on with this family.

It appears that it may do Duncan Hunter and America at-large some good if Congressman Hunter were to spend a few years in San Quentin Prison for his misdeeds.

US Rep. Duncan Hunter Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy Charge

"I failed to monitor and account for my campaign spending. I made mistakes and that’s what today was all about."

Prosecutors said his actions were not about mismanagement but were intentional. 

"This is not a case about mismanagement or accounting errors or mistakes. Duncan Hunter intentionally took money that did not belong to him and he used it for his own benefit. For that, he has been held accountable," U.S. Assistant Attorney Emily Allen said.
