Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) appears poised to plead guilty to federal campaign finance charges on Tuesday morning after more than a year of claiming the federal investigation into his spending habits was a “witch hunt.”

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/duncan-h ... 3e6f837f95.

The court docket in Hunter’s case indicated on Monday that Hunter has a change of plea hearing set for Tuesday morning, as first reported by The San Diego Union-Tribune. He’ll appear before U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Whelan, according to the notification.

Hunter fired two of his three attorneys recently and has been using different methods to delay his trial. At one point, he stated he couldn’t be tried because the crimes the prosecution claim he committed happened while he was conducting House business and House business is immune from the law.

A close acquaintance of mine who knows Hunter personally describes him as a jerk who thinks he is privileged to hold that seat because he “inherited” the seat from his father. Hunter claims he’s doing pledging guilty to spare his children and doesn’t want his wife in jail because their kids need a mother at home. Bullshit! He and his wife did the crime and people who aren’t Congressmen who’ve committed lesser crimes have gone to jail so why can’t they go to jail. Besides, Hunter and his family are living in his parents home so it’s not like the kids will be without an adult to look after them. Grandpa Duncan Hunter Sr and his wife can take care of the kids. Unfortunately, seeing how Duncan Hunter Jr. turned out grandpa and grandma may not be the best role models.

Hunter is also hoping his seat will remain in republican hands which tells me he won’t be running for re-election. There are a number of republican candidates running in the primary including our. Old buddy Darrell Issa who moved into the district so he could run. I think there is a slight possibility Hunter’s Democratic opponent in 2018 can take the seat considering he lost to Hunter by only 4 percentage points in a very red district.

BTY, it was the local paper, The San Diego Union-Tribune, that did the investigative journalism that found what Hunter was up to. They also exposed Randy “Duke” Cunningham, also a republican, who had to resign because he pleaded guilty of taking bribes in 2005. Yeah for local investigative journalism!

IF the Democrats do pick up Hunter's seat, that would be a huge get. This is a solidly Republican District. Issa resigned his seat after seeing the handwriting on wall as to his chances of winning.

California Democrats are not exactly sitting back and doing nothing after their sweep in 2018. There is a very heavy Voter Registration Drive right now. Hunter's seat just might be a pick up, but I will not lay odds on it.

Hunter is expect to resign after Congress returns from recess in January. This will may it interesting in that Gov. Newsom will have to call a special election or have it on the March 3rd primary. If it's on the primary then the winner of the primary will be the incumbent for the general election.

PFFFffffttt...Duncan Hunter has been in trouble in CA-50 for some time now. He only won the 2018 election by 3 percentage points. But let us not forget that CA-50 went for Trump by 15 points. It will go for Trump again next year. All the Republicans need to do is make sure they run somebody who isn't a blatant fucking asshole crook and they will never loose that US House seat.
