AUGUST 28, 2017
SAN DIEGO – More than 20 Indivisible groups joined forces in El Cajon on Saturday to call on Reps. Darrell Issa (CA-49) and Duncan Hunter (CA-50) to support a House resolution to censure President Donald Trump for his response to the tragedy in Charlottesville. http://www.cbs8.com/story/36224425/rep-hunter-no-shows-at-citizens-town-office-says-invitations-were-misleading
Hundreds of Hunter’s constituents then gathered for an “empty chair” town hall at Cuyamaca College, where they held a mock trial on Hunter’s misuse of $62,000 in campaign funds. Hunter is under FBI investigation. http://www.latimes.com/politics/essential/la-pol-ca-essential-politics-updates-san-diego-town-hall-of-rep-hunter-s-1503792877-htmlstory.html
Hunter, who did not reply to his constituents’ invitation to the town hall, chose instead to participate in a cruise with top-dollar Republican donors. https://twitter.com/MayorSamAbed/status/901949642874667008 This followed his remarks to young Republicans on Friday evening, when he called President Trump “an a**hole, but he’s our a**hole”. http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/politics/sd-me-hunter-trump-20170827-story.html
