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.”
