So this latest DoJ file reveals that Duncan Hunter had an affair with at least three different lobbyists, one of his own staff members, and an aide to a member of the GOP leadership team.

And here I thought Rep. Duncan was just a California-gated-community version of Jared Kushner — the entitled scion of a successful grifter who misused campaign funds because he felt he was entitled to a nicer lifestyle than he could afford honestly. Give Jared this much credit: either he has the sense keep his pants zipped, or he picks partners who have as much to lose from exposure as he does. Duncan was using campaign funds to ‘party’ with lobbyists — and using the campaign credit card he knew his ‘campaign manager’ wife would be auditing!
Here's the story: Prosecutors say Rep. Duncan Hunter illegally used campaign funds to pay for extramarital affairs with three lobbyists, a leadership aide and one of his staffers. (Plus some other stuff.) https://t.co/u5xnWm1CBi

… “I’m saying when I went to Iraq in 2003 the first time I gave her power of attorney and she handled my finances throughout my entire military career and that continued on when I got to Congress since I’m gone five days and home for two,” Hunter said at the time. “She was also the campaign manager.”
“So whatever she did, that will be looked at, too, I’m sure,” he continued. “But I didn’t do it.”…
Hunter’s wife pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors, who want her testimony to be used at trial in September.
"The marital communications privilege doesn't protect statements made by spouses who are partners in crime,” the filing read https://t.co/T7XsxoeBRp

GOP Congressman Duncan Hunter, who committed financial crimes in the process of having extramarital affairs with five different women, thinks gay people are the ones ruining the sanctity of marriage.

He was getting paid AND laid by lobbyists and that’s before the unmentionables, no wonder these GOP Reps are holding onto their last threads of power like grim death

Paging Ollie North…
Prosecutors are also moving to block Hunter from arguing that all Congressmen misuse campaign funds, and from using his military service and patriotism to sway the jury. https://t.co/rSVztwsKJ2

P.S. Hunter was re-elected by his constituents last November even after news of his indictment…
