Politico reported that defense attorneys also chastised federal prosecutors for airing Duncan’s infidelities in public through a motion filed Monday asking for jurors to hear testimony about the relationships.
“However unpopular the notion of a married man mixing business with pleasure, the government cannot simply dismiss the reality that Mr. Hunter’s relationships with [the women] often served an overtly political purpose that would not have existed irrespective of his occupation,” they wrote.
Hunter — an Iraq War veteran — is scheduled to go on trial for allegedly spending more than $250,000 in campaign funds on vacations, meals, hotel stays and bills. He also allegedly charged the campaign thousands of dollars for drinks, Uber rides and airfare during trysts with various women, who were lobbyists and congressional aides.
Hunter’s defense team said the expenses listed by prosecutors were “incurred in connection with a legitimate political activity.”
