Duncan Hunter Indictment

I’ve uploaded the indictment of Duncan Hunter and his wife.  It makes for fascinating reading.  Forty-seven pages of unalloyed greed.

According to the indictment (¶ 16), the Hunters:

[O]verdrew their bank account more than 1,100 times in a seven-year period resulting in approximately $37,761 in “overdraft” and “insufficient funds” bank fees. Their credit cards were frequently charged to the credit limit, often with five-figure balances, resulting in approximately $24,600 in finance charges, interest, and other fees related to late, over the limit, and returned payment fees.

No purchase was too small to charge off to the campaign.  Thus (¶22. 13) at pp. 13-14):

On or about June 24, 2010, in Alexandria, Virginia, DUNCAN HUNTER spent $41.75 in Campaign funds at 7-Eleven to purchase personal items while also withdrawing $20 in cash from his savings account using an ATM at the 7-Eleven, leaving an account balance of $0.06. On this day, the HUNTER family bank account had a negative balance and incurred an insufficient funds fee.

Finally, there’s this (¶22.67) at p. 22):

On or about July 21, 2012, in Del Mar, California, DUNCAN HUNTER spent $59.26 in Campaign funds at the Del Mar Country Club to purchase a pair of Under Armor shorts. At this time, the HUNTERS had a negative balance in their family bank account and had incurred six insufficient funds fees, one overdraft fee, and one returned item fee (totaling $253) during the prior six days.

Update:  Yes, chivalry is dead.

  1. Theatrical Agent: "And what do you call your act?"

    Hunter: "The Aristocrats! Fiscal Conservatives!"

  2. Just a note: Hunter, in a display of bravery that must make his former military comrades recoil in disgust, has issued a statement essentially blaming his wife for the entire scheme and attempting to pass himself off as her unfortunate dupe.
