Voters need to see that Congressman Duncan Hunter has been indicted on 60 counts of fraud and embezzlement and that he threw his wife under the bus. NPP (No Party Preference) men and Republican men especially need to see this.
Congressman Duncan Hunter has been indicted on 60 counts for embezzling $250,000 in campaign donations that he illegally used to fund a lavish lifestyle including vacations to Las Vegas and Italy. He refused to accept any responsibility for his actions, but blamed his wife in front of a judge and on national TV.
Hunter refuses to take responsibility for his crimes and is instead throwing his wife under the bus.
While the criminal indictment of Hunter details how he and his wife “knowingly conspired with each other” to personally misspend funds, Hunter says that his wife handled his campaign finances and he is in no way responsible.
Hunter is dishonoring veterans.
Hunter used campaign funds to buy clothing for himself and fraudulently claimed the purchase as gifts for wounded warriors. Using campaign funds for a family vacation to Italy, Hunter tried unsuccessfully to set up a tour at a U.S. Navy facility to justify the trip and then told his chief of staff to “tell the Navy to go (expletive) themselves.”
