Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

After years of denials and claims he was the target of a political witch hunt, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, is scheduled to appear in federal court Tuesday morning to change his plea of not guilty to charges stemming from a sweeping campaign finance investigation. The announcement was posted on the U.S. District Court docket Monday morning without any supplemental documentation. "Notice of change of hearing as to defendant Duncan D. Hunter," the docket entry states. "Change of Plea Hearing set for 12/3/2019 10:00 AM in Courtroom 3C before Judge Thomas J. Whelan." The reversal comes nearly six months after Hunter's wife and former campaign treasurer, Margaret Hunter, admitted to her role in a widespread scheme that saw the couple allegedly spend more than $200,000 in campaign donations on family expenses like vacations, gas, groceries, school lunches and oral surgery. Such spending is prohibited to prevent undue influence by contributors.

They should have bought a hotel first, and then staying in their hotel. I would not be surprised if Goppers all declare their home as a hotel and start charging themselves rent.

Duncan Hunter To Plead Guilty In Campaign Finance Case He Called Witch Hunt'. The Republican congressman claimed the federal investigation was because of his support for President Donald Trump.

Well he is partially correct. His support of Trump may have convinced him that laws don't apply to him.

Ha Ha!

Just a pig being caught doing what pigs do. Republicans are pigs, all of them. Totally corrupt with the top brass feeding at the trough while lower down the totem pole the fools get screwed by the top brass every day but are just too stupid to understand what is actually going on.
