Margaret Hunter, a co-defendant in a federal fraud case with her husband Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif., 50th District), is expected to plead guilty. A change of plea hearing is set for Thursday at 10 a.m. in a San Diego court, according to federal records.

The couple allegedly misused about $250,000 in campaign donations for personal expenses. In one incident, Rep. Hunter planned on buying a pair of “Hawaii shorts” for golf, but didn’t immediately have the money. Mrs. Hunter allegedly suggested a plan:

[Margaret Hunter] counseled [Duncan Hunter] to buy the shorts at a golf pro shop so that they could falsely describe the purchase later as ‘some [golf] balls for the wounded warriors.’

“When I went away to Iraq in 2003, the first time, I gave her power of attorney,” he said last year. “She handled my finances throughout my entire military career and that continued on when I got into Congress. She was also the campaign manager, so whatever she did, that’ll be looked at, too, I’m sure, but I didn’t do it.”

The couple pleaded not guilty at first.

Margaret Hunter’s attorney did not immediately respond to a Law&Crime request for comment.

“We are aware of Mrs. Hunter scheduling a hearing to change her plea,” Rep. Hunter’s lawyer Gregory Vega told The San Diego Union Tribune. “At this time, that does not change anything regarding Congressman Hunter. There are still significant motions that need to be litigated, specifically the speech or debate clause of the U.S. Constitution.”
