    Duncan Hunter says he'll resign after holidays following guilty plea over misusing campaign funds

    (CNN)Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter of California announced on Friday that he'll resign from Congress following the holiday season, news that comes after the congressman pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations.

    "Shortly after the Holidays I will resign from Congress," Hunter said in a statement Friday. "It has been an honor to serve the people of California's 50th District, and I greatly appreciate the trust they have put in me over these last 11 years."
    Wonder when Ilhan Omar will do the same for her misuse of funds......

    Right. She was fined $500 for having wrongly used $3500 of travel funds. Paid for. To you this is the same as a blatant misuse of more than $200,000 for an Italian vacation, groceries, bedding... Gotta have your false equivalence to make sure your "conservative values" don't look so bad.

    Re: Duncan Hunter says he'll resign after holidays following guilty plea over misusing campaign fund

    From August 22, 2018
    Indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) adamantly denied charges on Wednesday that he misused campaign funds, claiming that he is the victim of a Department of Justice (DOJ) “witch hunt.”
    Another good man taken down by a "witch hunt". Trump needs to step in and bail his friend out.

    THEN, he switched and blamed it all on his wife... THEN he pled guilty.

    Darrell Issa is running for this seat in the top two primary. Democrats have seven flipped seats from last year in CA to protect next year.
    Good lord, anyone but Issa. He is truly the dregs of the politician barrel.

    For once, he did the right thing.
    If he was worrying about his kids....too much too little too late.

    He did what was best for himself. His wife's plea bargain meant she gave up the goods on Duncan. He was caught dead to rights and made the best deal FOR HIMSELF that he could.

    The Green Papers: United States Off Year Election 2019

    Drop down to 2020 general election; tap on California; then go to the 50th;

    It’s a sign of the times when the FEC receipts tell you who the major candidates are. With your top two primary system in CA, the only Democrat running may make it to the runoff. He lost to Hunter in 2018.

    The only way I can enjoy politics is to get all into the nuts and bolts of elections, and of course crusade for the issues that are my passions, like infrastructure.

    Actually, I was referring to her gross misuse of campaign money she was giving to the married guy she was screwing (for him and his company's 'services') and whose marriage she helped wreck (along with her own - I forget, was that her brother or was that her other marriage?).

    But thanks, though, for reminding me that she has misused campaign dollars in other instances too.

    I'm not a conservative, nor have I ever ascribed to such a thing as"conservative values". Gotta love you failing so hard tho.

    The taxpayers are footing the bill for the Holiday pay...he shoulda resign now....
    I am a man of fixed and unbending principles, the first of which is to remain flexible at all times.
