Capitol Report: Justice Department alleges Rep. Duncan Hunter spent campaign money on affairs with lobbyists

In a fresh twist in the Justice Department’s case against Rep. Duncan Hunter, prosecutors now claim that his alleged misuse of campaign funds included spending on “intimate relationships” with at least five women who worked as lobbyists or congressional staffers.

The allegation is contained in a motion to admit new evidence from prosecutors. It comes after a federal grand jury indicted the California Republican and his wife in August on charges that they used more than $200,000 in campaign funds to pay for personal expenses between 2009 and 2016. Earlier this month, Margaret Hunter pleaded guilty to a single corruption count and agreed to testify against her husband, who won reelection in November despite being under indictment.
