Duncan Hunter's wife and infamous scapegoat pleads guilty to misuse of campaign funds
In a wild ass turn-of-events, Margaret Hunter, wife of Congressman and notorious scumbag Duncan Hunter, entered a guilty plea today to charges of campaign fund misuse.
The plea comes as a blow to Rep. Hunter who has long stood by the claim that he was innocent of any financial campaign misuse, so much so that he even infamously threw his wife under the bus to clear his name. Margaret Hunter, who also stood by her innocence, now has obviously shown a change of heart.
The criminal charges in reference all stem from a 47-page indictment filed against Rep. Hunter in August of last year, accusing Hunter of having used $250,000 of campaign finances on an assortment of foul shit, including but not limited to: an Italy trip (where he famously told the U.S. Navy to "go fuck themselves" after they objected the vacation), board shorts for said vacation (of course), and multiple party favors for alleged mistresses (sure, why not). The list continues.
When the charges were initially brought up against Hunter, the adult child-man only told the press the following: "[My wife] was the campaign manager, so whatever she did that'll be looked at too, I'm sure, but I didn't do it."
Obviously, it seems like that didn't sit too well with Mrs. Hunter.
As a result, according to court documents, Margaret Hunter has now confessed to have “knowingly and willingly” agreed to convert campaign funds to personal use between the years of 2010 to 2016. In a short statement from the wife and former campaign manager, Mrs. Hunter proclaimed
“Earlier this morning I entered a guilty plea before the U.S. District Court. In doing so, I have fully accepted responsibility for my conduct. I am deeply remorseful and I apologize. I am saddened for the hurt I have caused my family and others. I understand there will be more consequences stemming from my actions. But as demonstrated this morning, with the entry of the plea, I’ve taken the first step toward facing those consequences.”
She faces up to five years in jail with a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.
