SAN DIEGO (CNS) – The former Rep. Duncan Hunter, who pleaded guilty last year to using campaign funds for personal expenses and was weeks away from beginning an 11-month prison sentence, received a full pardon Tuesday, Dec. 22 from President Donald Trump.
Hunter represented the 50th Congressional District in San Diego County and Fallbrook, with a portion of which stretches into Temecula.
According to a statement from the White House, the pardon was issued ``at the request of many members of Congress'' and was supported by Bradley Smith, former Federal Election Commission chairman.
