And another Republican bites the dust.

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 plead guilty in a sweeping campaign finance investigation.

The announcement was posted on the U.S. District Court docket Monday morning, then KUSI aired an interview with Hunter in which he said he will plead guilty to one of the 60 criminal charges against him. He suggested that he is likely to spend time in custody.

“The plea I accepted is misuse of my own campaign funds, of which I pled guilty to only one count,” Hunter told the station. “I think it’s important that people know that I did make mistakes. I did not properly monitor or account for my campaign money. I justify my plea with the understanding that I am responsible for my own campaign and my own campaign money.”

The reversal comes nearly six months after Hunter’s wife and former campaign manager, 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.

Hunter did not explicitly say that he was stepping down but when asked about his congressional seat he said “I’m confident the transition will be a good one” and expressed hopes of having a Republican replace him.

 I am not sure how likely that is since much of the country appears to be turning blue and California in particular is becoming more liberal. 

I somehow doubt that Congress will miss Duncan Hunter and his vape pen, as he was an especially arrogant prick who rubbed quite a number of his associates the wrong way.

In my opinion he is just one more GOP POS thrown on the trash heap of history.

    “Vulva Values.”

    Maddow noted that two GOP lawmakers ― Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) and Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) ― were reelected last year despite being under indictment and facing potential prison sentences.

    “This is an indelible thing: Heavily Republican districts easily reelected both of these men to Congress despite the criminal charges they were actively facing,”

    Common sense lesson for the day from a person who spend 6 hours a day in family court: YOU WILL LOSE CUSTODY IF YOU DISCUSS ANYTHING RELATED TO CHILDREN AND CUSTODY IN A PUBLIC FORUM.
    YOU WILL GET NAILED FOR MANIPULATION OR COERCION OR EVEN EMOTIONAL CHILD ABUSE.

    Judges WILL come down HARD on people who publicize such sensitive details.

    Good evening.

    One member of the House Intelligence Committee who isn’t surprised by Nunes’ involvement in Trump’s Ukraine shakedown is Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell, who said on Tuesday that the California lawmaker has a history of being involved in this president’s schemes.
