Rep. Duncan Hunter announces guilty plea; one count of misuse of campaign funds

ABC10 quotes from kusi interview

“My trial was set for January 22 — that’s not going to happen now. Tomorrow, on Tuesday, I’m going to change my plea to guilty. I think it’s important not to have a public trial for three reasons, and those three reasons are my kids … It’s been a privilege to serve in Congress for 11 years, three tours in the Marine Corps in the wars. I think we’ve done a lot of great things for the nation.”

“I think it’s important for people to know that I did make mistakes. I did not properly monitor or account for my campaign money. I justify that plea with the understanding that I am responsible for my campaign and what happens to my campaign money,” Hunter told KUSI’s Steve Bosh.
