Lots of corrupt stuff going on in San Diego.

John Cunningham,... now Duncan Hunter. We should be proud of ourselves!

Over the years, I’ve gotten pretty good at spotting the corrupt people and flimflamers.
I never met Duncan Hunter, Jr. But I met the old man as well as John Cunningham. They look and act like mafiosos or corrupt sheriffs. And you know what they say about looking the part....

Did "John" Cunningham give you a fake name when you two were hanging out? Part of the flimflam maybe?

ROTFLMAO.. I have a hard time seeing FlyerInHi 'conversing' with hard core, old guard Republicans.

and moving on..
I generally don't trust ANY politicians. They survive and are successful if they have flexible morals and ethics. They often say one thing and do another - and expect no one to notice the disconnect.

On the charges - I can see a golf outing being a valid use of campaign funds IFF the purpose was working on campaign related issues. I am often surprised at how much is sometimes hammered out over a game of golf.

That said; almost everything else stated is pretty(more like very) bad. I almost get the impression that it is she, not he that wears the pants and he didn't want to tell her no. Her name crops up too much. That is still not a valid excuse.

Link to PDF of indictment: http://www.trbas.com/media/media/acrobat...

An interesting quirk, It shows a September 2016 Gran Jury, but filed Aug 18, 2018.

Umm.. here is another interesting tidbit. Duncan Hunter Jr was pulling in about $957,000/yr in gov salary?!?! Base salary shown as $174,000/yr.

Apparently, Margaret Hunter, the wholesome wife was the brains behind the crimes.
And they were dead broke and couldn't manage their money. Duncan Hunter took $20 out of $28 bank account. Pretty astounding.

Anyone giving odds on whether or not he gets re-elected in spite of the indictment?

Submitted by outtamojo on August 23, 2018 - 5:46pm.

I'd give him pretty good odds given that voters seem only to care about issues rather than the candidate as a person.

If this were the Deep South, I'd say odds of Duncan Hunter's relection are pretty high. But it's San Diego which has been turning blue from the coast eastward. I doubt he will be able to beat the charges brought by republican us attorney.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powe...
These charges were brought by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Diego, which is led by Trump appointee Adam Braverman. Attorney General Jeff Sessions installed Braverman in the post last year. Before he became a prosecutor, Braverman clerked for three federal judges. One was appointed by George H.W. Bush. The others were appointed by George W. Bush.

To relate this to real estate, I think people who are hoarders, whose houses are filled with toys are not good financial managers. They get reeled into desiring stuff just to accumulate.

I have been seen Duncan Hunter's house. The land is full of junk. There is a dried out, empty swimming pool. There is a tennis court that is parking for dusty and rusted outdoor toys -- a lot of junk everywhere like a landfill. It took a lot money to acquire those useless stuff. It shows the propensity to desire riches and a lifestyle that one cannot really afford it.

I guess some people really want to live like their rich friends.

I think he (Duncan Hunter Jr.) will be told(should) by the party, not to place his hat in the ring, and they will front someone else. Considering that Paul Ryan(R) was taking action to have him removed from committees when Duncan Hunter would not (refused to?) remove himself from the committees, I think the likelihood of him being told to step down may be good - despite what some analysis seems to be saying about his re-election chances. It could be that people are waiting for the 'results'. I read through the indictment and it is not good. For those that think it was a 'Democratic/Liberal' witch hunt; it may have started as that, but Duncan Hunter shouldn't have made it so damn easy. On the poll, it could be that those polled were waiting on the results. The Republican party needs to get ahead of this.

It is more than just 'not being good financial managers'. It is actually a combination of two psychological disorders.

The acquisition of stuff gives some people a dopamine and endorphin boost in their own brain (yes, the human brain can create opiates(dopamine)). This creates an addictive style of response. Depressed=>Shop, Sad=>Shop, Bored=>Shop; and with the resulting financial situation. The 'pain' of the cost is deferred using credit (expensive but painless{short term} money). The actual paying off gets deferred as long as possible with the resulting financial costs.

The hoarding of stuff gives them a sense(false sense) of security. The junk becomes like a 'security blanket'. They develop a feeling of angst/fear on the mere thought of getting rid of something even though it hasn't been used for a long time(years), they forgot they had it and it is decrepit or broken/not repairable. They don't realize that when going through life, you are literally 'carrying' that junk along on your back. It makes one much less mobile and flexible. If one finds something that is really worth purchasing, where is one going to put it with all the junk taking up space? How is one going to enjoy your residence if one has so much junk that they have to rent a hotel room in their own city just to get away and relax?

I don't know if I believe this story, not because it is unlikely that Duncan Hunter's house is full of junk, but because I don't believe you have actually seen it as well as the fact that Duncan Hunter Jr had to sell his property to cover debts/repay political campaign for personal expenses in 2016. He had to move in with his father.

Yes, Senior's house. It's in alpine near El Capitan reservoir. There is a trail up there and from a little up the hill, you can see it clearly. I'll post a google map link when I have time.

What otherwise could be considered an "estate" with acreage is very trashy looking. Like I said, full of junk and rusty vehicles.

It's Santee.

He will get re-elected since they can't replace him on the ballot with another Republican at this point.
