SAN DIEGO: Protesters Heckle GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter After He Wins Bid To Delay Trial Until After Midterms

Courthouse News reports:

U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter, the San Diego-area congressman facing charges of misusing campaign money, won his bid Monday to postpone his trial until after the midterm elections in November.

Federal authorities indicted Hunter on 60 charges in August, involving the suspected use of $250,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses. Margaret Hunter, his wife and campaign manager, also faces charges; both pleaded not guilty last month.

The Hunters appeared in court Monday morning before U.S. District Judge Thomas Whelan. Margaret Hunter’s attorney Thomas McNamara told Whelan his legal team needs two to three months to go through two terabytes of data provided by the government in the case.
