Hunter, 42, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and an early supporter of President Donald Trump, has affirmed him as the victim of a political motor prosecution. He announced his plans to enter a guilty plea on Tuesday in a short broadcast interview on a local television station.
The Hunter also pointed out, without saying so explicitly, that he would not seek re-election next year to the San Diego congressional seat, he first won in 2008, inheriting his father and fellow Republican, Duncan Lee Hunter.
“I believe the transformation would be a good one. My office will remain open, I have a great employee, “he said.” We will pass it away to anyone who takes the chair next year. ”
Hunter and his wife, Margaret, have been prosecuted in 2018 on an appropriation fee of $250,000 in campaign donations to pay for personal expenses, including child’s private school tuition, lavish tourism, expensive meals at restaurants, grocery and clothing.
