The man who used his campaign funds for everything from mistresses to luxury vacations to Burger King combo meals is going down:
After years of denials and claims he was the target of a political witch hunt, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, is scheduled to appear in federal court Tuesday morning to plead guilty in a sweeping campaign finance investigation.
The announcement was posted on the U.S. District Court docket Monday morning, then KUSI aired an interview with Hunter in which he said he will plead guilty to one of the 60 criminal charges against him. He suggested that he is likely to spend time in custody.
“The plea I accepted is misuse of my own campaign funds, of which I pled guilty to only one count,” Hunter told the station. “I think it’s important that people know that I did make mistakes. I did not properly monitor or account for my campaign money. I justify my plea with the understanding that I am responsible for my own campaign and my own campaign money.”
And you have to admit, game recognize game:
Chris Collins & Duncan Hunter were Trump's VERY FIRST endorsements from Congress.
As of tomorrow, both will have pled guilty to crimes. pic.twitter.com/OVukM8w5ZB— Jesse Ferguson (@JesseFFerguson) December 2, 2019
