Wife Of GOP House Rep. Duncan Hunter Pleads Guilty To Campaign Fraud, Will Cooperate With Prosecutors

San Diego’s Fox affiliate reports:

Rep. Duncan Hunter’s wife, who pleaded not guilty last summer along with her husband to charges of using more than $250,000 in campaign funds for their personal use, changed her plea to guilty in a hearing Thursday morning.

Attorneys for Margaret read a brief statement outside the courthouse after the hearing. She said in part: “I have fully accepted responsibility for my conduct” and “I understand that there will be more consequences.”

Duncan, 42, and Margaret, 44, are accused in a 60-count indictment of taking money from campaign coffers as if they were personal bank accounts and falsifying Federal Election Commission campaign finance reports to cover their tracks.
