SAN DIEGO (AP) - California Republican U.S. Rep. Duncan D. Hunter has resigned a month after being convicted of corruption.
The former Marine leaves one of the GOP’s few House seats in the heavily Democratic state.
Hunter pleaded guilty Dec. 3 to a single charge of conspiring with his wife to misspend at least $150,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses.
He and his father represented the San Diego County district for nearly 30 years.
