Felon GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter To Resign January 13th

The Washington Post reports:

Rep. Duncan D. Hunter will resign from Congress effective Jan. 13, two congressional aides with knowledge of the move said Tuesday, more than one month after the California Republican pleaded guilty in federal court to misusing campaign funds.

Hunter submitted his letter of resignation to congressional leaders Tuesday, according to the aides, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.

The six-term congressman is scheduled to be sentenced in March. He faces a maximum of five years in prison, although he is expected to serve less than one year.
