Posted on 12/06/2019 4:03:06 PM PST by malach
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 Californias 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 Hunters 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.

Hunter's district was hotly contested in the last election by a man with heavy terrorist connections, Middle East.
From the NYT: "Mr. Hunters ad, released on YouTube, in reference to the Democrat running against him. Hes used three different names to hide his familys ties to terrorism.
Mr. Campa-Najjar, who until Mr. Hunters 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
OLD NEWS, BUT THANKS
Quietly sneaking off. Good riddance to another corrupt politician. Too bad he and his wife did not get life sentences.
Looks like the Democrats are rushing him out and are forcing to to resign after the Holidays.
OLD NEWS, yes .. but relevant (!)
especially for the historically illiterate.
Can they keep the seat open until next November?
and the Commie Squad are next ? na
He should have been a democrat if he wanted to get away with this crap.
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?
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.
Of course not, it’s just that he is (gasp!) a Republican!
“I don’t see the House Ethics committee doing this over Ilhan Omar...”
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.
” Politicians are America’s only native criminal class. “ - Mark Twain
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.
Difference is he plead guilty, they have not been convicted YET.
why doesn’t he just pay it back and say it was a big misunderstanding like the Democrats od?
Will they be taking their pet bunny rabbit with them?
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.
