Rep. Duncan Hunter gets help with legal expenses from government contractors, others

Nine donors, including at least two who had already reached political contribution limits, gave $30,800 in the last quarter of 2018 to help pay for Rep. Duncan Hunterís legal defense, a new financial report shows.

The Republican Congressman representing Alpine and his wife and former campaign manager, Margaret, faced criminal investigations into their alleged use of political money for personal purposes. The two were indicted in August and have pleaded not guilty to all 60 charges.

The special fund for Hunterís legal expenses is administered by a trustee and is separate from his political campaign treasury, which has already paid at least $682,100 to lawyers since June 2016.

The quarterly financial report for Hunterís legal expense fund was released to the San Diego Union-Tribune by the Washington, D.C.,-based Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). The report, which covers fundraising and spending from Oct. 1 through Dec. 31, shows $30,800 in itemized contributions and no spending.
