#DuncanHunter’s crimes are finally catching up to him

Screenshot 2018-02-02 at 07.42.33A financial report filed Wednesday by the re-election campaign of Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Alpine, showed $50,703 in contributions during the last three months of 2017 — the lowest the campaign has reported in any quarter during its decade-long existence.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reviewed the campaign’s financial reports reflecting total contributions, spending, and cash-on-hand per quarter dating back to its first filing in July 2007.

Until Wednesday’s report, the campaign’s slowest quarter of fundraising was the last three months of 2007, when it reported $52,703 in total contributions.

Hunter has also seen more spending than usual, in part because of legal expenses. He is under federal criminal investigation as a result of personal spending of his campaign funds.

His contributors were mostly defense and other contractors whose businesses are affected by Hunter’s actions in Congress.

The end result of Hunter’s crime spree won’t be pretty.
