A federal grand jury is slated to hear evidence this month regarding campaign finance transactions by Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine), who has been under scrutiny since the spring of 2016 over questionable personal expenditures.
A subpoena dated Dec. 21 was issued by the U.S. District Court in San Diego to a business in Hunter’s district. Federal Election Commission records show Hunter’s campaign spent thousands of dollars at the business in 2012 and 2014. The subpoena ordered the witness to appear before a grand jury in San Diego later this month.
Hunter has denied intentional wrongdoing but has reimbursed his campaign for more than $60,000 of purchases including video games, oral surgery, groceries, garage door repair, family vacations, surfing equipment, dance recital trips, school lunches, school tuition and school uniforms.
