Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) announced Friday that he will be resigning from Congress in the coming weeks after he pleaded guilty to misusing his campaign funds. “Shortly after the Holidays I will resign from Congress,” he said in a statement, according to CBS News. “It has been an honor to serve the people of California’s 50th District, and I greatly appreciate the trust they have put in me over these last 11 years.” Hunter and his wife were accused of using $250,000 of his campaign funds for a variety of personal expenses—including extramarital affairs, vacations, and paying off credit cards. According to news station KGTV, he faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He will reportedly be sentenced in March.
