A federal judge on Monday rejected a request by Rep. Duncan Hunter’s lawyers to block evidence that allegedly shows the California Republican spent campaign money on personal matters that included extramarital affairs, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Attorneys for Hunter, who was indicted last year for alleged campaign finance violations, argued last week that the new allegations linking campaign spending to extramarital affairs were politically motivated and an attempt to “publicly embarrass Mr. Hunter with evidence that reflects poorly on his character,” according to a court document published by USA Today. “The Court should deny the Motion and prevent the Government from distracting the jury with this salacious and prejudicial information.”

Federal prosecutors filed the 12-page motion last week, accusing Hunter of repeatedly using campaign funds to cover expenses for affairs with five different women, all of whom “were involved in politics in some manner,” including lobbyists and Capitol Hill staffers.

“Evidence of the intimate, entirely personal quality of Hunter’s specific encounters with these women is essential to demonstrate that his spending to facilitate those encounters was improper,” prosecutors wrote. “At trial, the evidence will demonstrate that Hunter improperly used campaign funds to pursue these romances wholly unrelated to either his congressional campaigns or his official duties as a member of Congress.”

And I bet his wife will be sitting right there while all of his infidelities are listed out loud as well as all the taxpayer money he used to facilitate them and keep them secret. 

Oh, this is going to be a fucking circus.

    AND Hunter tried to blame it all on his wife, who then promptly decided to change her plea deal and is cooperating. Yeah, Hunter is one of those “critically thinking” republicans all right! S/

    The Democrats’ point man on tax returns, House Ways and Means Committee chair Richard Neal (D-Mass.), says the committee’s lawyers are simply taking their time to make sure the case is as strong as possible. “We’re close,”
    “Several Democrats have said the Trump administration defying a court order would present a true constitutional crisis.

    “My view is Pelosi and Neal are trying to avoid a constitutional crisis,” Hauser said, “because they don’t want to impeach him.”

      WTF is the matter with Alaskans?
      The “boom ” is over and so is the free lunch.
      Time to institute taxes like the rest of us pay in order to support education and the infrastructure.
      It’s like you all just woke up and are wondering what the hell happened.
      Suck it up buttercups.

    I don’t often snort with laughter, but this did it for me…”with evidence that reflects poorly on his character,”

    This qualifies him for the clergy.
