#rsrh CA Dem campaign treasurer arrested* for mail fraud.

Well, this sounds interesting:

A prominent Democratic campaign treasurer who works for federal, state and O.C. lawmakers including U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Rep. Loretta Sanchez and state Assemblymen Lou Correa and Jose Solorio has been arrested by the FBI on suspicion of mail fraud, The Orange County Register has learned.

U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Thom Mrozek confirmed Saturday afternoon that Kinde Durkee of Burbank-based Durkee and Associates, was arrested by the FBI on a criminal complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento. Special Agent Steve Dupre of the bureau’s Sacramento office said she was arrested in connection with her position as a campaign treasurer.

Via Jazz Shaw of Hot Air, who reasonably points out that all of the people that Durkee worked for may be victims of her, not co-conspirators.  Fair enough, but Loretta Sanchez in particular has been known to be ethically vacant for some time (ot-nay oo-tay ight-bray, either), so I shall engage in a little tacit character assassination here and bold her name in the quoted text.

…There!  D0ne.

*I originally wrote ‘elected’ instead of ‘arrested.’  Clearly my subconscious has opinions on how much the Democratic leadership really cares about honest bookkeeping.
