Democrats running in California may find themselves shorter on cash than they expected going into the 2012 elections. Longtime campaign treasurer Kinde Durkee is accused of stealing more than $1 million from Democratic candidates across the state. Durkee, called the "Madoff of campaign finance," was arrested Sept. 2 and accused of stealing $600,000 from the campaign of state Assemblyman Jose Solorio. Prosecutors say there’s evidence that she may have stolen millions from several other politicians. "Now I come to you at a time of great anguish when I have to report: we have been robbed!!" U.S. Rep. Susan Davis wrote to her supporters, saying more than $250,000 had been stolen.
