As reported earlier this week, Republican congressman Duncan Hunter, who wasted millions of taxpayer dollars conducting a political witch hunt thinly disguised as an investigation into the Benghazi tragedy, is under criminal investigation for using campaign funds for personal use. According to an ethics office report, campaign funds were allegedly used for, among items, family travel, flights, utilities, health care, school uniforms, jewelry, groceries, and other goods and services.
Hunter is now publicly denying that he did anything wrong. As reported by Politico: “California GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter — under criminal investigation by the Justice Department over alleged campaign violations — insists he did nothing wrong. Hunter won’t say who is responsible for tens of thousands of dollars in campaign charges for personal expenses, but he says it wasn’t him and he’s broken no laws.”
Said Hunter, “I was not involved in any criminal action, Maybe I wasn’t attentive enough to my campaign. That’s not a crime.”
Interestingly, while seeking to absolve himself of any responsibility, Hunter refused to say whether his wife played a role in the alleged criminal wrongdoing. Again, from Politico, “When asked who did [improperly use campaign funds] — if it was his wife, Margaret, who was listed as his campaign manager — Hunter would not say.”
