On Tuesday, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) and his wife and former campaign manager, Margaret, were indicted on charges of wire fraud, falsifying records, campaign finance violations, and conspiracy.
The Justice Department has spent more than a year investigating the Hunters. The are accused of misusing $250,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses and filing false campaign finance records. Several charges on a campaign credit card have come under scrutiny, including dental work and airline fare for his family's pet rabbit. Hunter has maintained his innocence, and said any charges were accidental.
Federal Election Commission records show that after Hunter was questioned about money spent on video games in 2016, he reimbursed his campaign account $65,000, CNN reports. The Hunters are set to be arraigned Thursday morning in San Diego. Catherine Garcia
