"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)
