California Rep. Hunter’s wife may have flipped on him in corruption case
https://news.yahoo.com/california-rep-hunters-wife-may-have-flipped-on-him-in-corruption-case-201958331.html

This is the guy that accused of using 250,000 of his campaign funds on himself and his wife.
IIRC, he tried to throw his wife under the bus for these allegations. Looks like she didn't care much for that act of kindness.

Yet another good Republican...full of family values and shit.

The part that astounds me (from the yahoo link) is this:

If Hunter is convicted — the charges against him could carry a prison sentence of up to five years — no constitutional provision or House rule would require him to be removed from Congress; if imprisoned, he would no longer be allowed to vote on behalf of his district, but he would technically be allowed to retain his seat. Even so, he would almost certainly come under enormous pressure from Republican leaders to resign.

I think the house can refuse to seat him if he won reelection.

What fd up laws we have.

You can jail a congressmen, but can't remove him from office.

You can't charge nor jail a criminal president, but you can remove him if you get a supermajority.

Both are free to take obscene amounts of secret donations, you know, because free speech..

What a racket

I guess his wife wants him to join her under the bus. :D

I laughed my ass off when he said that it was all the fault of his wife. Party of personal responsibility, my ass.
It's almost as if everything republicans say is a total lie. Personal responsibility, boot straps, morals, family values, ethics, fiscal responsibility. All lies.

Sure- why not? I mean, he's a Trump loving Republican so it's perfectly OK. Donnie can declare the whole thing a deep state witch hunt, anyway, and give him a full pardon. If Hunter sucks up extremely well he might even get a cabinet appointment.

Please don't tell me it has been lies all along, I have believed in everything they have told me, I even hate the same people they told me I should hate. My fragile ego can't handle that.

What a classy family with such prestigious upbringing. We should all idealize this amazing family and their values.



Seriously, fuck this douche and his family. I'm laughing at his wife turning on him - yet am not surprised. Good job on pushing yourself into the spotlight - that REALLY served you well.

On top of it all, the idiot residents of his district still voted him in after a rather nasty racially based campaign against his opponent.. Think I'll keep SD off of my future travels in retirement.
EDIT: Same district that Randy Duke Cunningham (also a republican) was convicted of bribery and ordered to pay 1.8 mil in restitution. Must be something in the water.

Nope... they're Republicans and they have been taught to vote only Re;publican so that's what they do. It could be Satan* himself running and they would vote for him because that's what they do.

* They had to settle for Hunter but they're still happy because they got close with Trump.

I guess he should have shuffled the money around to a few shell companies and it would be ok.

Yeh, in Trumpworld it would have been fine if he'd been a better crook like the Donald. Y'all seem to admire him for it. In his own words, nobody knows the system better than Trump. How anybody ever came to believe he'd ever be on anybody's side other than his own is a propaganda triumph, one for the ages.
