Orange County Republican lawmaker accused of stealing campaign funds for personal expenses

In June, GOP California Assemblyman Bill Brough was plunged into scandal when three women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct, including a county supervisor.


Now, according to the Fresno Bee, he is facing a completely unrelated scandal, as the California Fair Political Practices Commission alleges he has illegally diverted campaign funds for personal use — including to pay off his family's cell phone bill, meals at upscale restaurants, a custom-made liquor cabinet, and a personal trip to attend a Boston Red Sox game.

The expenditures were first flagged by Aaron Park, a conservative blogger who runs "Right on Daily." Brough was notified of the FPPC investigation in July.

The allegations bear a similarity to those against Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), who is under indictment for allegedly using campaign money for trips to Europe, alcohol, and mistresses.
