“Rep. Duncan Hunter (R)—un­der crim­in­al in­vest­ig­a­tion by the Justice De­part­ment over al­leged cam­paign vi­ol­a­tions—in­sists he did noth­ing wrong.”

“Hunter won’t say who is re­spons­ible for tens of thou­sands of dol­lars in cam­paign charges for per­son­al ex­penses, but he says it wasn’t him and he’s broken no laws.”

“I was not in­volved in any crim­in­al ac­tion,” Hunter said. “Maybe I wasn’t at­tent­ive enough to my cam­paign. That’s not a crime.”

“However, the Mar­ine Corps com­bat vet and five-term law­maker de­clined re­peatedly to say who was re­spons­ible for mak­ing the charges.”

“I didn’t make any of those charges. None. None of those ex­pendit­ures,” Hunter in­sisted. (Politico)
