Rep. Duncan Hunter and his wife, Margaret, were indicted Tuesday on charges related to the misuse of $250,000 worth of campaign funds for personal expenses and the filing of false campaign finance records.

Just before the election. How convenient.
And yet hillary has hundreds of millions of dollars from foreign governments sent to the Foundation and she walks free.
It has been one of those news days. It's not even Friday, unfortunately.
Gee DOJ sure seems to like indicting repubs
Didn’t something like this take down his father?
When are Republicans going to learn, you aren’t Rats!
GOP’ers must be absolutely above reproach!
Everything particularly when it comes to “campaign money” must be looked at “6 ways to Sunday” to make sure that not only the law is not being violated but even that the appearance of what they are doing can’t be interpreted as a violation!
Martha Stewart went to jail for much less than that.
Everybody getting indicted for doing 1/10000000th of the financial shenannigans the Clinton crime family has done every - single - day for decades.
I doubt there is even 2 dems or repubs who have NOT misused campaign funds or other similar monies (taxpayer, grants, etc)
I don’t believe it.
I don’t know if this has been posted yet...
One of the charges Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to was “Campaign Finance Fraud.”
According to Politico, Cohen told the judge he acted at the direction of Donald Trump.
Toss him. Find a different candidate, one with a brain, pro-Trump but not to excess (this is California), a clean record and a pretty face.
0bama got a small fine for $millions of illegal donations that he kept.
It’s the only thing Rip Van Sessions does well ... That, and going after ginseng growers - effing spineless simpleton that he is.
Does the DOJ ever indict RATs?
Cattle futures, though certainly something wasn’t kosher about it.
n-D Chess from the napping Sessions.
Damn right. Charlie Rangel could murder someone on camera and Harlem would send him back to DC without a second thought. Hell, DC elected Marion Berry as mayor after he was caught dead to rights smoking crack and soliciting hookers on surveillance camera. Oh, they erected a statue in his honor too.
The same kind of charges sent former Rep. Steve Stockman, R-TX, to prison even before sentencing. Trump should pardon Stockman too.
