Duncan Hunter Says He Is Leaving Congress, Pleading Guilty to Misusing Campaign Funds
HUNTER: "Yeah. As most folks now, my trial was set for January 22nd. That's not going to happen now. Tomorrow, on Tuesday, I'm going to change my plea to guilty. I think it's important not to have a public trial for three reasons. Those three reasons are my kids. I think it's — it'd be really tough for them. It's hard enough being the kids of a public figure and I think it's time for them to live life outside of the spotlight. But it's been a privilege to serve in Congress for 11 years, three tours in the Marine Corps and the wars. So I think we've done a lot of great things for the nation."
