Duncan Hunter, Last Week: It Was My Wife. Duncan Hunter Now: “Leave My Wife Out Of It.”

Los Angeles Times: “Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and his wife Margaret were charged a week ago on 60 counts in a federal indictment alleging they improperly spent some $250,000 in campaign contributions on lavish vacations, meals and personal items.”

“On Thursday, Hunter said of his wife to a Fox News reporter: ‘She handled my finances throughout my entire military career and that continued on when I got into Congress …. She was also the campaign manager. Whatever she did, that’ll be looked at too, I’m sure, but I didn’t do it.’ He added, ‘I didn’t spend any money illegally.’

But on Tuesday, after Hunter’s apparent attempt to blame his wife became an internet meme, he told KGTV News in San Diego: ‘Leave my wife out of it, leave my family out of it. It’s me they’re after, anyway. They’re not after my wife; they want to take me down, that’s what they’re up to. So let’s get this in the arena and have this settled.'”
