Felon Rep. Duncan Hunter Won’t Say If He Is Resigning

Politico reports:

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) is showing no signs of stepping down from office despite his guilty plea Tuesday on a felony campaign finance charge in federal court.

When asked Wednesday about whether and when he intended to resign, Hunter blew off the question. “Good talk,” Hunter told a POLITICO reporter. Former Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.), who pleaded guilty to insider trading on Oct. 1, resigned from office the day before his guilty plea.

Top Republicans would like to see Hunter resign quickly, although they are prepared to give him some time to “get his affairs in order,” one GOP lawmaker said. “But not forever.”
