A brief entry in the federal court docket in San Diego said Margaret Hunter was scheduled for a change-of-plea hearing, although there was no immediate confirmation of which of the 60 felony charges would admit to or whether she would testify against her husband.

“We are aware of Mrs. Hunter scheduling a hearing to change her plea,” said Greg Vega, a defense lawyer for Duncan Hunter. “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.” The Speech or Debate Clause prevents lawmakers and aides from legal action over legitimate legislative activities, and it is often invoked in corruption cases involving members and senators.

When the Hunters were indicted last summer, they both asserted their innocence in response to charges that hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds were spent on an Italian vacation, groceries and video game charges.
