Remember Duncan Hunter? The gem of a human being that threw his wife under the bus after claiming that she was to blame for the misappropriation of hundreds of thousands of campaign funds for their own lavish lifestyle? Well, sometimes justice is served – good ‘ol Dunc is going to jail!!
(Bloomberg) –Former U.S. Congressman Duncan Hunter was sentenced to 11 months in prison after pleading guilty to using his election campaign fund as a piggy bank for what prosecutors said was his family’s “profligate” lifestyle.

Hunter was sentenced on Tuesday to eleven months in prison and three years of parole for corruption charges from his misuse of more than $200,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses, including an Italian family vacation which included a $600 plane ticket for a pet rabbit.
Originally, Hunter said he gave his wife power of attorney when he served in Iraq as a Marine and she has handled his finances since then. According to Hunter, “She was also the campaign manager, so whatever she did that’ll be looked at too, I’m sure. But I didn’t do it. I didn’t spend any money illegally.”
“Defendant Duncan Hunter launched an improper, wide-ranging, and dangerous assault on our system of justice. As part of a disingenuous attempt to deflect attention away from his own criminal conduct, Hunter repeatedly attacked this nation’s very system of government, including Congress, the FBI, the Department of Justice in general, and individual federal prosecutors in particular.”
Looks like the wheels on the bus do go round and round…Just like karma.
