SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- In August 2018, a federal grand jury indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and his wife, Margaret, on suspicion of campaign funding misuse.

The affidavit detailed instances from 2009 through 2016 in which the Hunters reportedly used campaign money illegally for things like video games, family vacations, school tuition, and more.
