Duncan Hunter submits resignation letter to Pelosi, Newsom
Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., sent a letter of resignation to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday, and plans to officially leave his post on Jan. 13.
Hunter, 42, pleaded guilty last month to a single count of conspiracy to misuse at least $150,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses. Hunter initially maintained his innocence for months but ultimately reversed gears and struck a deal with prosecutors. He is facing up to five years in prison and will be sentenced on March 17.
