Court Docs Reveal Duncan Hunter Used Campaign Funds to Carry Out ‘Intimate’ Affairs With Lobbyists

New court documents from Duncan Hunter’s (R-CA) campaign finance violations case show that the embattled congressman illegally used those funds to facilitate a multitude of extramarital affairs.

USA Today justice reporter Brad Heath flagged several key passages from the case’s newly-release documents on Tuesday, many of which show Hunter sticking with his claim that the case against him is a “deep state” plot by the Justice Department to punish him for supporting President Donald Trump.
