GOP congressman Duncan Hunter to plead guilty to federal corruption

Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter of California intends to change his "not guilty" plea for charges of spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations on personal expenses.

A federal indictment filed in August 2018 alleged Hunter and his wife, Margaret, illegally spent more than $250,000 in campaign donations to cover expenses such as family vacations and video games. A note posted in the U.S. District Court docket on Monday suggests Hunter may back off his claim of innocence.

"Notice of change of hearing as to defendant Duncan D. Hunter," the entry says, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. "Change of Plea Hearing set for 12/3/2019 10:00 a.m. in Courtroom 3C before Judge Thomas J. Whelan."

Hunter’s wife, who is also the lawmaker’s former campaign treasurer, pleaded guilty to making illegal campaign expenditures in June and agreed to testify against Hunter. Margaret, 44, faces up to five years in prison and is scheduled for sentencing in April.

"I'm confident that the transition will be a good one," Hunter said on Monday. "My office is going to remain open. We’re going to pass it off to whoever takes this seat next. I think it's important to keep the seat a Republican seat."

But not quite as important as banging congressional staffers or spending campaign funds on video games.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict there is a divorce in their future.

Is anyone familiar enough with this case to know if it was her stealing the money,and him sharing the guilt in a legal sense because he was at the top of the totem pole,or was he stealing campaign cash,also?
