Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) appears poised to plead guilty to federal campaign finance charges on Tuesday morning after more than a year of claiming the federal investigation into his spending habits was a "witch hunt."

You mean calling an investigation a witch hunt over and over again doesn't actually make it a witch hunt?

He ran for re-election in 2018 after the indictment, and won.

His only defense of his indictment during the election was "Witch Hunt".

And he won.

This fact alone is all one needs to know about what Republican Voters want in a candidate, and will gladly accept.

Now, tell me again what Democrats are supposed to do to appeal to these Republican Voters.

Splain me one more time how Dems would be well served to consider Republican acceptability when we elect our candidates in the primaries.

Witch hunt?!? The GOP found the witch--Hunter's wife, who breathed a little fire on her scarecrow husband in her testimony. Lit his --- up. Imagine if Melania reacted the same way. This country would have the first bald president since Ike...

This is the kind of thing that sours me so much about the GOP today not to mention the mouth pieces that will proclaim him guiltless. If this was an isolated example fine - but it isn't. Not only was he reelected but he backed the bus over his own wife with his accusations.

I get it, you can point out Democrat candidates in the way back machine if you so choose (Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy and Marion Barry for example...) that did reprehensible things and were still elected. Those are now old and isolated. But when you claim to have such high standards and ethics and reelect swamp creatures like this - not to mention Donald Trump - you better think about your actions and the message they send and your moral position.

Flagrant disregard for the law and ethics seems to be the GOP motto of today while they point fingers and claim the moral high ground. I think their moral position can be found somewhere near the bottom of the Grand Canyon and not the top of Denali...

The irony. The "witch hunt" found a witch. Burn him.

The "witch hunt" found a witch.

The problem is the witch hunters put a false nose on the witch and it has yet to be proven if the witch weighs the same as a duck.

JeffJ: #7 is bulls***. There is no "false nose" on this witch. Duncan Hunter is as dirty and dishonest as they come. For god's sake, he entered a guilty plea. Man up and just acknowledge this pos for what he is.

JeffJ: I got the reference. I'm just feeling rather humorless today. I honestly am so fed up with right wing corruption at this point that I'm just not currently able to laugh it off. Maybe I'll feel less annoyed tomorrow. For now at least, don't expect me to good humoredly laugh off right wing lies, spin and coordinated misinformation. We all should be feeling humorless outrage at this point. IMO.

AM: If you were a person of integrity and/or honesty, you too would be feeling the same humorless outrage about Republican lies, spin and coordinated misinformation. But you don't. So you won't. And that in a nutshell is what is dragging the DR down into the cesspool. Is there any level of right wing deceit that is too much for people like you?

Have you considered suing your brains for nonsupport?

I hear the only place you're ever invited is outside.

People can't say that you have absolutely nothing. After all, you have inferiority.

Some people just lack the ability to laugh at themselves.

I can honestly say that I have little trouble laughing at myself. I'm laughable in every sense of the word.

Mod8,

You just articulated why humor is desperately needed on this site.

Way too many people come here filled with piss and vinegar (I've been guilty of this) and could use a good, or even half-decent, joke to take the edge off.

exactly. he didn't get the reference otherwise he would have responded 100% differently.

and humor is what some folks here need a massive dose of.

"Some people just lack the ability to laugh at themselves."

most folks love humor...but few want to be the subject of it.

You people seriously need to lighten up.

A Republican just walked away from a not guilty plea.

That should make you all happy but it seems some of you are incapable of being happy.

I can't imagine what it must be like to be perpetually outraged like some of you are.

You're joking, right? He "walked away" only after he realized he was caught. First he blamed the investigators, then his wife, then called it a "witch hunt", then said he was only being pursued because he was a Trump supporter.

Turns out he was lying, lying, lying, and lying...in that order.

But feel free to keep telling his critics to "lighten up".

He deserves to have the book thrown at him.

What I'm talking about is getting all outraged over a Monte Python quote on the heels of a finding a witch' comment.

I can't believe how many of you people took umbrage to that. At least Mod8 kind of backed off.

Alternative take...the same Republicans who knew he committed a felony and still nominated him will learn nothing from his and his wife's guilty pleas and will pick another corrupt turd next year. What's to be happy about?

That's like saying you should be happy that you caught one of the hundred terrorists that escaped from prison, when there's a political party saying the other 99 are just victims of a deep state hoax.

I can't imagine what it must be like to be so in denial about what your party has become that you spend every day pretending the other side is upset over nothing.

A Catholic who has such prolific unprotected sex with his wife to the point he can no longer afford to feed and house his brood is faced with a stark choice. He could have his balls cut off but God would obviously see through such a shabby trick. So his only option left is to sell his children off to be used for scientific experimentation.

Duncan Hunter is a lying, corrupt, racist, POS soon to be a convicted felon who barely beat his Democratic opponent in a heavily GOP district that he inherited from his daddy by running an incredibly racist campaign suggesting his Democratic opponent, Ammar Campa-Najjar who was born in San Diego, had ties to terrorism. I don't wish this on many, but I hope old Duncan gets a daily polyp check from his cellmate while in jail.

But wait, I thought Hunter's wife handled all the finances. That's what he claimed earlier. Why isn't she pleading guilty? He was just entertaining his FIVE mistresses! So clearly his wife is the guilty one - terrible bookkeeper and terrible in the sack!
