Justice Department Investigating GOP Congressman for Campaign Finance Violations
Per a letter from the House Ethics Committee, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) is currently being investigated by the Department of Justice over possible campaign finance violations.
As the letter states, the committee has been asked to defer its own consideration of the matter so the DOJ can look into it. The committee also released a report showing the votes on their decision to defer.
The Congressman has denied any wrongdoing.
UPDATE 3:40 PM ET: We inadvertently had Hunter listed as (D-CA) when he should have been shown as (R-CA). This has now been corrected.
