" Federal prosecutors have accused Rep. Duncan Hunter of improperly using campaign funds to pursue numerous romantic affairs with congressional aides and lobbyists, according to a new court filing late Monday night.

The Justice Department alleged that Hunter (R-Calif.) and his wife Margaret Hunter illegally diverted $250,000 in campaign funds for personal use, including to fund lavish vacations and their children’s school tuition. Monday’s court filings also spell out allegations that Hunter routinely used campaign funds to pay for Ubers, bar tabs, hotel rooms and other expenses to fund at least five extramarital relationships.

Nice to see he was active in constituent affairs.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

It’s that personal desire to press the flesh that makes him endearing.

Actually this is about the best thing he could have done with that money. Can you imagine the kinds of ads he would have run using that cash? Now, the conservative donors will be just a little careful before they pull out the checkbook.

Guess (Soon to be ex) Wifey wasn't very happy to learn where the Congresscrook was "Duncan" his donuts…

Between him and Duke Cunningham: Both from San Diego, Both "decorated" veterans, both sleazebags…

No wonder San Diego is still known as Enron-by-the-Sea.

The worst part is that he was reelected last fall even after all of evidence and allegations were made public - but if you know the east county of San Diego, you'd also know that an opponent named Ammar Campa-Najjar can't ever be elected, even after the prosecution proves its case, posts photos of the trysts and other misdeeds with campaign funds, and Junior goes to prison. The numbskulls will reelect him again. It's a(nother) really sad commentary on the current state of politics in this country. (And Ammar is even more American than apple pie…)

During the campaign last fall, the crook, Hunter, claimed that Ammar's grandfather was a member of the PLO among other things - and then claimed that his candidacy was just a part of a larger plan to infiltrate the government with terrorists. Played well enough with the idiots he represents that he was reelected …

He threw her under the bus before he was even formally accused, so this comes as no surprise.
