SAN DIEGO — Congressman Duncan Hunter said in a statement Friday that he will resign after the holidays.

“Shortly after the Holidays I will resign from Congress,” the statement read. “It has been an honor to serve the people of California’s 50th District, and I greatly appreciate the trust they have put in me over these last 11 years.”

The announcement came just one day after the House Ethics Committee urged Hunter in a letter to stop voting on legislation and other issues on the House floor.

News of Hunter’s resignation was expected after the congressman changed his plea in an ongoing campaign finance case earlier this week. Hunter stands accused of wire fraud, conspiracy and falsification of records for spending more than $250,000 in campaign funds on personal purchases, the details of which were revealed in a 60-count federal indictment made public in August 2018.

I don't see the House Ethics committee doing this over Ilhan Omar...

Hunter's district was hotly contested in the last election by a man with heavy terrorist connections, Middle East.

From the NYT: "Mr. Hunter’s ad, released on YouTube, in reference to the Democrat running against him. “He’s used three different names to hide his family’s ties to terrorism.”

Mr. Campa-Najjar, who until Mr. Hunter’s troubles was considered a very long shot to win a predominantly Republican district in the San Diego suburbs, has a Mexican-American mother and a father who immigrated from the Middle East. His paternal grandfather, Muhammad Youssef al-Najjar, was involved with the plan to murder Israeli athletes at the Olympic Games in Germany in 1972; he was assassinated by Israeli military commandos in 19

73."

Quietly sneaking off. Good riddance to another corrupt politician. Too bad he and his wife did not get life sentences.

What a disappointment. I had high hopes for his dad, and I thought he would also be good.

Is Hunter more corrupt than Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi or Adam Schiff?

DIRTYSECRET :" Can they keep the seat open until next November? "

Chances are, the (Dem) Governor will appoint a temporary candidate to fill the chair.
I can't imagine the chair remaining vacant for 11 months,
since the constituents would demand representation.

Nor do I see the House Ethics Committee doing ANYTHING about Schiff’s clear and continual blatant violations of the House Code of Conduct.

House of Representatives, Official Code of Conduct

1. A Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, officer, or employee of the House shall behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House.

NO ONE is more corrupt that the Wicked Witch of the East, Maxine Waters and the Wicked Witch of the West, Nancy Pelosi.

Schiff is chump change.

If it’s not the judicial double standard it’s corrupt politicians illegally lining their pockets with cash. The corruption is so out of control.

There ya go, just tell them it was all unintentional like FBI Comey said about H. Clinton when he publicly admitted she was guilty as hell, but decided not to pursue or recommend charges against her because it was all, “Unintentional”.

The judicial double standard is epic.
