‘I didn’t do it’: Indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter says wife handled finances

Accused of misusing about $250,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses, U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., is attempting to defend himself against the claims in a recent indictment against him and his wife.

In an interview this week, he said it was his wife, who also served as his campaign managers, who had full control over the finances. Both he and Margaret Hunter pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The congressman said that “whatever she did” will be “looked at” by prosecutors.

“When I went away to Iraq in 2003, the first time, I gave her power of attorney,” he said. “She handled my finances throughout my entire military career and that continued on when I got into Congress.”

He went on to emphasize that his wife also ran his campaign.

“So whatever she did, that’ll be looked at too, I’m sure,” he said. “But I didn’t do it.”
