California Republican Congressmember Duncan Hunter will plead guilty in federal court today in a campaign finance violations case. He’s accused of misusing a quarter of a million dollars of campaign money for personal use, including to finance numerous romantic affairs with congressional aides and lobbyists. His wife, Margaret Hunter, already pleaded guilty to conspiracy to misuse campaign funds in June. Hunter has not yet said whether he’ll resign from his congressional seat. Hunter was an early supporter of President Trump and tried to claim the charges against him were a “witch hunt” — before deciding to plead guilty.
