Convicted GOP Lawmaker Will Finally Step Down From His Post Next Monday: Report
A new report revealed on Tuesday that Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), who recently pleaded guilty to a gigantic scheme in which he and his wife used campaign funds for personal expenses, has officially announced that his resignation will be effective on Monday, January 13.
According to The Washington Post, Hunter had stated at the end of last year that he would resign “shortly after the holidays,” but the exact timetable for his exit from Congress had been unclear.
Hunter was first indicted after being accused of using campaign funds on a series of sexual affairs, including with three lobbyists and a staffer. He first tried to blame the whole scheme on his wife, but after his affairs surfaced, he had no defense and finally admitted to the crime.
