The Daily Beast: Trump’s Guy, Rep. Duncan Hunter, Spent Campaign $$$ at Disney
“Regardless of whether Rep. Hunter claims these misuses of campaign funds were mistakes, it’s time for a full-scale investigation by the Federal Election Commission or Department of Justice,” Paul Ryan, deputy executive director of the Campaign Legal Center, told The Daily Beast.
“Using campaign funds to pay personal expenses is a major violation,” Ryan said. “Even if it was somehow a mistake. If an investigation reveals the misuse of campaign funds was intentional, that’s an even bigger deal. Intentional violations are subject to criminal penalties, not just civil penalties.”
