“In the last five weeks of 2018, Rep. Duncan Hunter’s (R) campaign reported spending hundreds of dollars at a local amusement park and made $2,000 in charges — now disputed — to a technology company that flies drones.” They are among the “expenditures Hunter’s campaign disclosed to the Federal Election Commission on Thursday, in a financial report covering Nov. 27 through Dec. 31. During the same weeks, the campaign reported raising $2,376.”

“The financial report Hunter filed last week includes three expenditures described as ‘disputed charges.’ The three disbursements, totaling $1,990, were made in November to ByteSignal, a Missouri-based technology consulting business that specializes in using small, pilotless drones to capture aerial photography and safely inspect telecommunication poles, among other services.”

Hunter “has returned to the nation’s capital to resume lawmaking as he and his wife and former campaign manager, Margaret, fight a 60-count federal indictment stemming from their alleged personal use of more than $250,000 in campaign money from 2009 through 2016.” (San Diego Union-Tribune)
