Fox News: GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter and Wife Indicted on Charges Using Campaign Funds for Personal Expenses

California Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter and his wife, Margaret Hunter, were indicted Tuesday, charged with using $250,000 in campaign funds on personal expenses, including a vacation to Italy, private school tuition, and dental work

EXCERPT:

LA JEUNESSE: "Sandra, the timing for Hunter and Republicans could not be worse. The party is trying to hold onto 23 House seats. This was a GOP lock. Now arguably it is up for grabs after the U.S. Attorney in San Diego indicted the five-term congressman and his wife on 60 counts of fraud for allegedly spending $250,000 in campaign money on ski trips and European vacations, dental bills, private school tuition, video games, golf and — tequila shots. 'Throughout the relevant period,' the indictment says, 'the Hunters spent substantially more than they earned. They overdrew their bank another more than 1,100 times over seven years, resulting in $37,000 in 'overdraft' or 'insufficient funds' bank fees.' Federal agents raided the Hunters' home last year. At the time Hunter said he trusted the justice system. Now, however, he claims the indictment is politically motivated, by two assistant U.S. Attorneys who attended a Hillary Clinton fundraiser."
