Conservative attorney reveals Duncan Hunter’s ‘colossal stupidity’ with devastating timeline of his actions

Published

Conservative attorney Gabriel Malor, who in the past has written legal analyses for right-wing publications such as The Federalist and the Washington Examiner, found himself in awe at the latest Department of Justice filings leveled against indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA).

In court filings made on Tuesday, the DOJ alleged that Hunter illegally used money donated to his congressional campaign to “carry out a series of intimate relationships” with women who were all involved in politics, including three registered lobbyists and one of his own staff members.

After reading the DOJ’s allegations, Malor created a timeline of Hunter’s actions, which he said demonstrated the congressman’s “colossal stupidity.”

“JAN 2009 – Assumes office,” Malor begins, referring to the beginning of Hunter’s tenure in the United States House of Representatives. “APR 2009 to APR 2012 – Has affair he pays for with campaign cash. AUG 2012 to OCT 2015 – Another, another (staffer), another. AUG 2016 – OCE [Office of Congressional Ethics] recommends investigation. SEP 2016 – ANOTHER!”

In other words, according to the DOJ’s telling of events, Hunter continued to use campaign cash to pay for expenses related to his affairs even after the Office of Congressional Ethics declared that he should be investigated.

“Rep. Hunter is alleged to have misused campaign funds for one of his affairs AFTER the ethics investigation began,” Malor wrote. “What did he think was happening?”

He then turned to Hunter’s attempts to blame his wife, Margaret Hunter, for any campaign cash that was illegally spent on personal expenses.

“Let’s not mention the colossal stupidity of doing all this and then taking the first opportunity to blame it on his wife,” Malor wrote. “Again, what did he think was going to happen next?”

Published

Astronomers believe they have discovered a new, bizarre type of cosmic object that is invisible to all wavelengths of light except radio.

This story originally appeared at Salon.

The strange circular objects in question have been unofficially dubbed "Odd Radio Circles" (ORCs); three of them were discovered in a recent data accumulated during a preliminary survey by the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder, a radio telescope array in Western Australia. A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.

Bill Barr quietly pulls off a shake-up in a federal prosecutor’s office — but why?

Published

on

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
