CA Rep. Duncan Hunter Indicted for Campaign Finance Violations

HeadlineAug 22, 2018

Republican California Congressmember Duncan Hunter, the second member of Congress to endorse candidate Donald Trump, has been indicted for campaign finance violations along with his wife, only weeks after the first congressmember to endorse Trump, Chris Collins of New York, was also indicted. Prosecutors say Hunter and his wife misused campaign funds for personal expenses, including expensive vacations and their children’s school tuition. Hunter is up for re-election in November. His challenger is up-and-coming progressive candidate, 29-year-old Palestinian-Mexican-American Ammar Campa-Najjar.
