Smoke gets in your eyes
Smoke gets in your eyes
Rep. Duncan Hunter (Junior), Republican congressheir of San Diego, is already a star for vaping in the Congressional chamber like a don’t-give-no-shits bro. But he may be about to get famous the old-fashioned way: for having to take out a HELOC on his house to pay back his congressional campaign for more than $60,000-worth of totally campaign-related expenses like:

  • A nail salon
  • $217 at a jewelry store in Italy marked as “food and beverage”
  • $1200 for a garage door
  • $361 at a surf and skateboard shop
  • $229 at a Disneyland gift shop
  • and $1400 to “the Cardiff-by-the-Sea restaurant that delivers lunches to the El Cajon private school attended by Hunter’s children.”

Plus, you know, another fifty-five thousand dollars worth of Costco and Jack in the Box and a dentist and oral surgeon and God only knows what else.

You will be relieved to know Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr. never meant to hurt you, never meant to make you cry; it’s just that his wife, Margaret, a multitalented woman who is both an art therapist and his paid campaign manager, mixed up the credit cards $59,000-worth of times! The little lady no longer has access to the charge cards. WOMEN! AND SHOOOZ!

No no no, says Hunter spokesman Joe Kasper, it was all TOTALLY LEGITIMATE, WHY WOULD YOU EVEN ASK. But just to be on the safe side, Hunter took out a home loan to pay back all the “questionable” items, like the $2000 spent touring “the Italian cities of Rome, Florence and Positano during Thanksgiving week in 2015.”

How do you know that wasn’t campaign-related, HENGHHH?

Anything else pertinent, San Diego Union Tribune?

Hunter has been widely reported as a contender for Secretary of Defense or National Security Adviser in Trump’s administration. […]

Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who is leading the transition, had his own issues with personal spending of campaign money during an unsuccessful run for Congress in 1990. He used about $12,000 in campaign funds to pay his mortgage, credit cards, groceries, car payments and golf tournament fees, according to The Washington Post.

Got it.

      There is a decent mexican restaurant there. Food was moderate, but great location for sunset margaritas.

    • Seek

      By the time one drives from Cardiff to El Cajon, at least a half an hour if there’s no traffic, the food will be … hmmmm … less than first quality. I suspect someone in El Cajon could cook for the little future congresspersons and put it in a box from the Cardiff restaurant and Duncan the Lesser could have saved the campaign a few bucks.

    Grifting asshole Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr. can fuck right off. Vaping makes him look like a little baby dragon with a birth defect.

    • I always enjoy watching people at the ballpark complain that they should be able to vape in their seat instead of having to go out where the smokers go. Yeah, because the other 20 people sitting around you really want to try and watch the game through the haze.

    The reason I vape is simple: It’s so I don’t smoke cigarettes. I vape knowing that I’m not inhaling tobacco. Most importantly, I vape because I believe it could save my life.

    There are millions of Americans like me, who are choosing e-cigarettes over their traditional counterpart. Now the Food and Drug Administration wants to force me and millions of others to revert to cigarettes through the issuance of new regulations.

          I’m looking forward to his boasting about the meeting by tweeting a photo of himself eating a sushi bowl from the Trump Tower Cafeteria.

          • Jennifer R

            Like I said last night, More embarrassing than when HW vomited on Miyazawa.

          • LadyLaz

            Hw couldn’t help that.

          • Jennifer R

            “Hey I have the flu maybe a state dinner is a bad idea?”
            Still embarrassing.

          • Celtic_Gnome

            It was the broccoli.

    • Nounverb911

      What are the odds that trump pronounces ‘Abe’ wrong?
      (hint, it has 2 syllables)

    • Okay, so should we start panicking now or wait until later?

      • Jennifer R

        I gave him his chance and he appointed a racist. You should have already been panicking.

        • Look, it’s hard to maintain a constant state of panic. If you’re not limbered up, you can pull a muscle running in circles.

          • Marion in Savannah

            I find it helps if I spend a fair amount of time under the bed.

            I have been doing it for over 30 years so far, you just need a good running start.

          • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

            Being a minority in America basically means living in a constant state of panic.

          • Jennifer R

            Yep.

      • Nounverb911

        YES!

      • Historicat

        I’ve been panicking for over a week now.

    Think he grifted too hard for the senate to overlook?

    DAY 8

    Still no address to the American people. Or press conference. Only a 60 Minutes set-piece.

    • The Wanderer

      He’ll get around to it. It’s dawned on him that the job’s a teensy bit more complicated than signing papers to slap his name against the side of yet another third-rate hunk of architecture.

      • Resistinceisnotfutile

        That’s why he wants his kids to help. They are much better at things like organizing and understanding stuff.

        • Old Man Yells at Cloud

          That’s because they can actually read.

  • mardam422

    The only thing Trump is gonna make great again is Republican’s wallets.

      Rich Republican wallets. Not Republican voters’ wallets.

          Good thing they’ll be able to blame Obama.

    • Sister Suffragette

      In all seriousness, I’m taking my money out of the Thrift Savings Plan before these grifters can get their mitts on it.

  • Jenny, Manocidal Vagendiac

    I think the swamp is having its muck brought to the top.

    • MynameisBlarney

      Draining the swamp, leaving nothing but a mass of leeches.

    • The Wanderer

      Of course, and there’s no question whatever about ‘draining’ it, despite The Asshole’s overheated rhetoric. He’s made an alliance with the swamp – why else would Henry Kissinger be visiting Trump Tower?

      • Tacoclamgenda

        Reading along thinking it’s a lady I’m getting used to just how outrageous this is all going to be and then I see Trump Tower is hosting Henry Kissinger. Once again I think oh come on now this has to be a joke. And once again I think We. Are. So. Fucked.

  • Cousin Itt de la résistance

    Keep breathing.

    Breathing,
    Breathing her nicotine,
    Breathing,
    Breathing the fall-out in,
    Out in, out in, out in, out in.

    We’ve lost our chance.
    We’re the first and the last, ooh,
    After the blast.
    Chips of Plutonium
    Are twinkling in every lung.

    So basically what I’m reading is that these rapacious twatwaffles are going to be too busy raiding the US Treasury to bother with actually ruining the country policy-wise.

    • Nounverb911

      Or suing the government they run to lower their taxes….

      • sgt. jmk of the résistance

        They have to prioritize.

    • Resistinceisnotfutile

      For the win.

    • Old Man Yells at Cloud

      I fear that when it comes to raiding the treasury and ruining the country, the twatwaffles are expert multi-taskers.

    • BackDoorMan

      … once he bankrupts the country, “I, Donald J. Trump” (iDJT for short – like his fingers) will walk away richer than before. So too his rapacious twatwaffle minions. Of this, we should not be surprised. Dismayed perhaps, but not surprised.

  • beavertank

    It’s good to see that Trump is already down to the fifth string Republicans in his desperate search for top level cabinet positions. That seems like a good sign for his administration and not at all an indication that it will be a horrifying clusterfuck of failure.

  • baconzgood

    I just realized that Pence has to do his job (filling the VP’S cabinet) but also Trump’s job.

    • Brendan_M

      We are all Indianans now.

  • Anna Rompage

    I’ve always wondered how people in congress who make $177,000/yr, become multi millionaires with serving their constituents and doing their “civic” duty…

    Granted I know some of these folks make their money by burning down their businesses for the insurance settlements, while others make their wad working as nefarious lawyers that promote the vast health benefits of smoking and toxic waste, but if there’s one thing I do know, is that if I used my company credit card for multiple personal purchases over and extended period of time, I’d be fired, and then likely brought up on embezzlement charges..

  • Marion in Savannah

    Welp, I guess a new Cabinet position will be Chairman of the Muslim Registry. According to the NYT he’s insisting that he will require Muslims to be registered. When asked how that would be different from Jews having to register in Nazi Germany he kept saying “You tell me.” Not making this shit up:

        what about the new blue diamonds? (I diint scroll down far enough) :(

    • Bemused

      IIRC, there isn’t really too formal a process to becoming muslim, which means there isn’t any paperwork or list or anything that says if you are or aren’t. Really anyone could declare they were muslim. Like, maybe 100,000,000 people who didn’t used to be, yesterday.

    And the Trump people are still insisting that it will all be different and he will make America great again…. you realize dude the difference can be worse. This… I can’t even.

    I get emails from corporate counsel and even they are saying “conflicts of interest are profound with Trump.” These aren’t lefties. Everyone understands a little bit of graft doesn’t kill the system. A lot and we bring the whole thing down into the third world. This is what has set us apart from many other democracies. Even the pigs knew (used to) they couldn’t gum up the works too much.

    I have reverted to southern type…. I walk around saying, I can’t even, and want to weep. This is so bad.
