Hunter, along with his wife, were indicted on Aug. 21 on charges related to the misuse of $250,000 worth of campaign funds for personal expenses and the filing of false campaign finance records. The couple used campaign funds, according to the indictments, to pay for family vacations to Italy and Hawaii, dental work, gifts for their children, bar tabs, and — my favorite — a plane ticket for their pet rabbit to travel with the family. They were also charged with bank fraud and falsifying records to obstruct justice. For his defense, Hunter is blaming his wife. He said that she handled his campaign finances and their home budget. I’m sure this defense will secure a lot of female voters to his cause as he runs for re-election in November.
